Booking forms are kept on the sports hall notice board, or you can call us or email. Please give us 12 hours notice. You can generally book for up to 8 weeks at a time and it a first come, first served basis.
We do have a small number of rackets for hire and we can usually find a spare shuttlecock if you break your last one.
For those who are starting badminton, we would like to suggest a few things you should and should not focus on in the early stages.
FOCUS ON :
- the correct grip
- the correct stroke
- fitness – jog/swim/bike – or do footwork drills
DO NOT FOCUS ON :
- trick shots – stop learning those strange shots.
- fancy style – we have so many times seen beginners with really fancy looking hitting style but then they miss the shuttle. Keep it simple.
- strength training – leave this until after you have learned your basic strokes
