Joining

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 with other club members, you’ll be welcome.

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:

  • £120 adult membership
  • £80 student membership
  • £60 under 18’s membership

These prices cover 1 September to 30 April; two nights per week (Tuesdays plus Fridays).  The following membership discounts are available:

  • £20 discount for new adult/student members (£10 after 31st December)
  • £10 discount for new junior members (£5 after 31st December)
  • 50% discount for Friday-only membership (we don’t offer Tuesday-only)

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

You can come as a visitor for a few sessions before making the decision to join. The visitors’ fee is £3 per session (£2 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 May to August.  This is a flat £3 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.
