The committee have been in discussion regarding a safe return to badminton, and we are making arrangements to resume the club from Thursday 3rd September. There will be a number of important changes that we will communicate before we can resume. If you are aware of players (existing or new) who might not be on this circulation list, please ask them to subscribe to the updates.
In line with the latest government advice, the club have decided to suspend activities until further notice. Both Rugby and Coventry leagues have advised that fixtures are to be postponed.
This will remain in effect until further notice. Please check back to the website for further updates.
The committee have assessed the risk of coronavirus and have the following advice for members.
Club nights and matches will continue for the time being. If this changes, we will update the website – please check before attending.
While the risk is in place, we kindly ask all members to reduce the risk of transmission by observing these sensible precautions:
- No handshakes – “elbow pump” instead if appropriate
- No pegboard – games will be organised “ad-hoc”
- Please wash hands before and after attending club / matches
- If you feel unwell please do not attend club
- If you become unwell having previously attended club, please let a committee member know as soon as possible, (use the Contact Us page if you don’t have contact details)
- The school remains open in line with current guidance from the Department for Education and Public Health England
There’s no club night 20th Feb due to half term. We return with a new start time of 7.30pm from Thursday 27th February. Also, due to low attendence on Tuesdays, courts will be for matches only for the remainder of the league season.
We will be doing our customary festive nibbles along with club night this Thursday (19th December). You are welcome to bring in some food / snacks to share. There’s no Tuesday badminton this week as the school has reserved the hall for an event.
No Tuesday courts this week (5th November) due to an event at the school – enjoy the fireworks instead! We do have 4 courts available next week (12th November).
Club night is on as usual this week; the website had the wrong info but has now been corrected.
Just a quick reminder that there are no club courts tonight (8th October) due to league matches, however there are Tuesday courts for available for the remainder of October. Check the website calendar which is kept up-to-date.
As the match season starts, we return to having courts available on Tuesdays from 7.30pm – 10.00pm. All club members are welcome to play on courts not used for matches or team practice – check the website for availability.
Due to an event at the school on Friday 12th, the sports hall will be unavailable to the club on Thursday 11th July. We will instead be holding the club’s AGM in the classroom at the school, starting at 8pm.
While there will be no games that evening, we hope as many members will attend the AGM as possible. Following the AGM, members are invited to an informal social event at the Black Horse in Bilton (from approx. 9pm).
