FELUBA is sorry to inform the Luxembourg badminton community that our long-time umpire Niels Repsdorph passed away on 11 April, aged 73. An early member of Badminton Club Schuttrange, Niels started his umpiring career in the late 90’s and soon developed into one of the most hard-working umpires on the national circuit. He was much appreciated by the players for his calm manner and his good sense of humour. Niels remained active until his health began to deteriorate a few years ago. We will keep him in excellent memory as a friend and colleague.
