Welcome to the on-line home of the NELBDG.

The NELBDG is a group of clubs who have joined together to further promote the sport of badminton. We are a voluntary, sports organisation based in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, catering for all ages and abilities. Our membership is free, all our clubs are pay & play and we also offer private 1-2-1 coaching if required!

Our primary sport is "Badminton", but we offer much, much more, which you will find as you browse through our web-site. Enjoy the site and any feedback would be most welcome. 

We have a team of expert coaches and team leaders, including three coaches now working full time. We offer first class coaching at club or school level or through private lessons for groups or individuals. Between us, we run five adult clubs (including three family sessions), 2 Over 50s &Friends, sessions, seven junior sessions, nine after or pre-school clubs and our coaches also help to run three of the Lincolnshire County Squads.

All our club sessions are geared towards casual play, catering for all abilities, however, for those who like to be competitive, we also operate a monthly 'non commitment', singles and doubles league for adults and a separate league for the juniors. Additionally, throughout the year, we do our best to run regular junior and adult tournaments.

We have sporting partnerships with: NELC Sports Development Unit, NELC School Sports Partnership, Humberside Sports Partnership, Grimsby Institute, Franklin College, Oasis Academy & Oasis Leisure, Havelock Academy, YMCA, GhoPa, Sports & Leisure Management, Lincs Inspire Ltd and Foresight.

To help promote the best in sport, we also sell 'non-profit' discounted sports goods (often discounts up to 30%), from the likes of: Ashaway, Yehlex, Fleet, Forza, Head, Prince, Inflight, Electre, Kason, Titan and Stealth. We also have an agency with 2 Sport Shops, Gullane Sports (Scotland) and Cojo's (Louth) who from time to time, offer us promotions on Yonex, Carlton and Karakul. To take advantage of these offers, please keep checking our website, however please note: we do not offer on line sales, our sales are for members only and available at all club session.

A further service offered by the  group, is our very own re-string service for badminton, squash and tennis rackets. This service also includes, 'carbon weld' racket repairs for damaged rackets through a company called Electre, who have been repairing rackets for over 20 years. Finally, just as a little extra, when funds permit, we offer free taster sessions to all schools who offer to promote badminton.
