Badminton Wales Announcement - Gary Rees

Posted by Rob Short at 03:03 on 5 March 2018

Badminton Wales is sad to report the passing of Gary Rees, who dedicated a large portion of his life to sport in Wales, in particular Badminton and Rugby. 

In the 80s and 90s Gary led the Speedbird Badminton Club which enjoyed some epic battles with rival club Penarth in the Cardiff and District league. 

He steered the original Mid-Glamorgan County Badminton team and was instrumental in resurrecting the team in 2006 who went on to become the first Welsh team to reach the English Premier Leagues. 

Gary will be greatly missed by all who knew him, and our condolences go out to Gary’s family and friends. 

Details of the funeral are as follows: 

Location: Llwydcoed Crematorium, Llwydcoed, Aberdare. CF44 0DJ. 

Date: Wednesday 7th March

Time: 10:30am 

Wake: Cynon Valley Indoor Bowls Centre, Dyffryn Rd, MOUNTAIN ASH, RCT, CF45 4DA
