Our aim is to give children of all abilities the opportunity to play badminton in a safe, competitive and fun
environment, against competitors of the same age.
Players will have a minimum of 3 games, with more if they keep on winning.
Our B singles competitions (5th November 2023) are particularly suitable for school and club players with
less experience (county players do not play in these events). However players are welcome to enter any
competition at all, in their age group or above.
If you run a club or teach in a school where badminton is played why not bring along a group. It's a great
way to keep fit and socialise!!!
