BL Badminton is a friendly club who welcome people of all abilities. We provide opportunities for members who are interested in playing competitively, as well as those who just want to play for fun.
Feel free to come along and join us, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced player. We offer a whole year of court time for just £15*, which is extremely good value. All new members will receive a free taster session before paying subs.
*£15 for social players, team members are required to pay team subs.
We’ll have a taster session at the beginning of the year which will give you a chance to see what the club is like. Also, this is a good chance for anybody who wants to play for the team to show us what they’ve got! Bring a racket if you have one but if you do not, the club has a few spares.
The selection process is done by the teams’ respective captains and you will be contacted if you show potential. Anybody who is not selected to be part of the team can still take come every week for our social sessions.
Saturday 2-4pm in Qmotion Sports Hall
We provide shuttles and have a few club rackets that we can lend you. However it’s best if you have your own racket as they can be in high demand!
There is no obligation to play every week but we’d love to see our social members as much as possible! For team members we’d hope to see that you’re committed to the club and have an interest in training for matches.
