We offer a full range of services for the sport of badminton, ranging from, clubs, coaching, equipment sales and a re-string and racket repair service.

We run at least one club every day of the week, all year round. Clubs catering for every age and gender, clubs for the beginner, the intermediate and the advanced player, clubs for schools, clubs for families and a disability club.

We offer professional coaching from fully qualified and registered Badminton England coaching staff and for those interested in the challenge of competition, we run two local badminton leagues.
