Although a very friendly club to play at, we do have an obligation to all members who range from club to county representative. Therefore we are not really suited to absolute beginners. We try to bring new players on as best we can in the first few sessions, particularly those who are a little rusty, but after that we expect new members to be of a reasonable standard. We think it is best to be up front with new members and certainly if or club is not for you then we hope we can put you in touch with suitable alternatives.
We use feather shuttle for both club night and matches.
For a full 12 months of Badminton (July-June) the fees are:
£140 (18+ in full employment)
£105 (In full time education)
A pro rata fee will be set when joining mid season.
The fees are split into two payments during the 12 months
No. The club is run as a non profit-making organisation. A proportion of the fee goes in affiliation fees to the national and county governing bodies, the rest covers courts, shuttles, insurance etc.
No, this will be entirely up to you. The teams are usually ‘selected in August/September so if you join mid-season you may have to wait until the next season. Having said that, having a few teams in the league usually allows us to give all members, new or old, a chance to play in matches.
