Season ending after 30th April 2024

  Our season is ending very soon! The final club night will be on Tuesday, 30th April 2024. As is usual for the last few years, we will have no sessions during May and then we will start again in June for ‘Summer Badminton’ and run through until the end of August. These sessions will only be on Tuesdays until the season starts again in September. We will be posting another update before the start of the summer sessions together with info about the upcoming AGM.

Thank you all for coming to our club nights throughout the long “rainy season”. We look forward to seeing you in the summer (or indeed autumn). Thanks also to our many team players who won countless rallies, created excitement, and almost won more matches than everybody else ;-).

The badminton season has already returned!

Hi All,
The badminton season has already returned this Tuesday, 5th September. Yes, we’re playing tonight, Friday, 8th September :-).
The usual weekly times are back, which is Tuesdays and Fridays between 19:00 and 22:00.
We are unfortunately raising the prices from £120 to £130 for a returning, full member. This is due to increased venue hire costs.
More will be explained in the minutes to the AGM soon to be posted  – so look out for them 😉
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone back – remember team selections will start soon, so best turn up and show off your best moves ;-).
