playing hours

Please note that our current playing hours are:

That amounts to 5 or 6 court-hours each Monday on two or three courts.

We have a firm booking on two courts; we will book the third court ad hoc if it's available. In short, we will tune our use of the third court to the demand on the night.

11 May 2021

play from 17 May 2021

We are able to restart playing badminton on 17May2021 (next Monday).

For the next five weeks at least, this will be subject to the rules that applied last autumn, so you need to email me in advance if you want to play. After that, I hope we shall be able to play as normal.

Play will be from 7pm until 9pm.

We are now being charged more so we have to raise subs. Short-term, the charge will be £5 a week. When we see better what our membership count is we can decide new fees at the AGM.

Payment will continue to be via your account; don't bring cash. Most people are in credit; I'll let you know when you need to top up your account. If you need a statement, just ask.

Looking forward to seeing you again on Monday. In the meantime, if you have any questions or comments, feel free to email me.
