Joining

John and Dave playing badminton

John and Dave

If you’d like to join the club then just come down to a club session. It might be wise to contact us to let us know you’re coming so we can make sure we look out for you and answer any questions you may have. We do have a minimum acceptable standard but as long as you’re able to serve tolerably well and keep a rally going competently, you’ll be welcome. Unfortunately we’re unable to coach complete beginners.

We generally offer around 60 club nights per season which equates to 180 hours of badminton, not including matches. We feel that our fees give good value for money for a club with a well equipped hall, many teams and a friendly atmosphere.

Full membership prices are as follows:

  • £140 adult membership
  • £90 student membership
  • £70 under 18’s membership

These prices cover 1 September to 30 April; two nights per week (Tuesdays plus Fridays).  Players who only wish to attend our Friday sessions receive a membership discount of 50% (we don’t offer Tuesday-only).

The standard joining fee can be paid in two instalments if necessary.

You may come as a visitor for a maximum of 3 sessions before making the decision to join. The visitors’ fee is £4 per session (£3 for students/juniors) and this cost is taken off the joining fee if you later decide to join.

Summer Badminton

Our main club runs from September to April, but we also run a separate, shorter summer season from July to August.  This is a flat £4 per session for everyone (members or non-members), and runs just on Tuesdays from 1945-2200 in our usual location.  You are welcome to come down to these, and it can help introduce you to members and let you gauge the playing standard before the main season starts.
