The season kicks off on the 4th of September this year and it looks set to be a great one. Following the success of the training by Roger Stroud last season, we’re hoping to get him to come down to the club again this season to run a few more sessions.
We’ve also entered our usual mens, ladies and mixed teams into various local leagues and no doubt we’ll run a few more of our highly popular social evenings. We’re also happy that we’ve managed to fend off a rise in membership fees for another season.
Whether you’re new to badminton or an experienced player we encourage you to come on down to the club. We have players of all abilities so you’ll be more than welcome, and we’re offering the first night free to new members.
We look forward to seeing you on … Read More »
The summer club is currently running most Wednesdays between 8 and 9pm. Feel free to come along or if you’d like to find out more Contact Us.
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 … Read More »
Quick note to announce a new end of season. Three courts will be available on Monday and one on Thursday from 4th April-30th April.
After what was a fairly comfortable win against St Lukes at Wellsway School in sunny Keynsham, the Men’s first team are top of the table halfway thorough the season.
On the 2nd of October the men’s second team played their first match of the season in division 3 of the Swindon league. The opposition were Brecon and the game was at home.
Following a few close matches, with Yannick and Will determined to halve every one (they succeeded), the overall score was 9-8. With one game left to play, the pressure was on the final pair to consolidate the victory.
The first end had been close so anything could happen. At 16-all Tetbury crumbled with 4 points practically given away to hand the opponents game point.
With an unfathomable resurgence the Tetbury duo fought back to 19-20 and then, disaster. To describe it as a mid-court collision would be kind. A collision in the right tram about a yard from the net would be accurate. Worse still the “clear” hung like forbidden fruit … Read More »
We had our first club night last night and were very pleased to welcome two new players.
The summer season has begun. Come on down on a Thursday night from 8th May until 17th July. It’s pay to play so bring some cash!
In 2012/13 our Swindon League Men’s Team (our second men’s team) comfortably won Division 5 and were duly promoted to Division 4.
After a much tougher season in 2013/14 we came to play our final match when the 2 teams above had already completed their fixtures. In Swindon League matches 18 sets are played and a team gains a league point for every set won, plus a bonus 3 points for winning the match overall. In the last game we needed a 16-2 win to climb above the team in second place. We were playing the bottom team and it was at home…
We won 15-3 and so finished level on points! However, to decide position, sets lost over the season are then counted and…. we had lost fewer!
The team in the final game included Ollie Strutt, Pete Martin, Martin Doidge, Conrad Goodenough, … Read More »
