Awards

The following awards are presented annually by Marblehead Youth Badminton or the Gut ‘n Feathers Club:

The Jeff Bingenheimer Sportsmanship Award

A long time member of the Gut ‘n Feathers Club, Jeff Bingenheimer was the ultimate sportsman. He played competitive badminton with passion and spirit while at all times being respectful of his opponents. His concern for others was always part of his character and his impeccable conduct was a guiding example for all of us who knew ‘The Bing’.

In honoring Jeff’s memory, the Gut ‘n Feathers Club is proud to present the ‘Jeff Bingenheimer Sportsmanship Award’ to deserving contestants in both women’s and men’s events. The award is presented at the New England Junior Open hosted annually by Marblehead Youth Badminton. The winners are players who best exemplify the qualities that were so important to Jeff. The winners are given ‘Keeper Certificates’ while their names are engraved on the Perpetual Award kept at the Gut ‘n Feathers Club.

The Bud Orne Spirit and Service Award

Bud Orne was a local Marblehead legend. Many Marblehead children knew him as a crossing guard for the Gerry School, his teddy bear and painted rocks, but he was also a bit of a philosopher. One of his favorite sayings was, “Do a good deed every day and find something to smile about.” As the former director of the Park and Recreation Department, Bud was really passionate about kids and kid’s sports. Marblehead Youth Hockey and Bud Orne are practically synonymous. Bud was also a long time member of the Gut ‘n Feathers Club. He enjoyed passing his love of the game on to the junior members.

The Bud Orne Spirit and Service Award is presented each year to a person(s), who like Bud, is a passionate supporter of youth badminton, and exemplifies those qualities of determination, fair play, and enthusiasm that Bud held dear.
