2016/2017 Winter Season: Free taster session, subsidised coaching and half price membership fees on offer
Keen to attract new members, we’ll be running a number of promotions from September to kick-start the new season.
The season will open with a free taster evening on Monday September 12th, 8-10pm, where non-members are welcome to come and try their hand at badminton. Players of any level can attend and racquets and shuttles will be provided by the club.
The following week, on Monday September 19th, the club will host a free coaching taster session with well-respected coach, Roger Stroud. Coaching will take place from 8-9pm for beginners and 9-10pm for improvers. After the first session, players will have the opportunity to sign up for a five-week coaching course at £3 per session for adults and juniors. Again, racquets and shuttles will be provided.
Lastly, any players looking to join can attend as a visitor for up to three sessions at a charge of £5 per night and then have the opportunity to join for the rest of the year for just £50 – half the regular annual fee.
Established in the 1930s, the Club is well established and has enjoyed success in a number of different county badminton leagues in the past. In the 2015/2016 season, the club fielded three teams, a mixed team playing in the Mid Gloucestershire league, a men’s team in the Swindon league, and a second men’s team in the Mid Gloucestershire league.
For the upcoming 2016/2017 season, the club is increasing its coverage adding a Ladies team to Division 2 of the Gloucestershire league.
While the games are competitive, the Club is friendly and sociable and open to players of any standard.
