Due to the current Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic we have had to cancel club nights. With Badminton England's guidance slowly changing we are hoping to resume playing shortly so watch this space for updates. Unfortunately, until we are able to resume club nights with full numbers we are unable to consider new members to the club. We will keep this under review and as soon as it becomes possible, invite more people to try the club. Please don't just turn up as we will be unable to let you play.
