Sessions will be relaxed and informal and our coach Ian will aim to improve your game enough to allow you to enjoy our social club nights. Sessions are £5 per time on a pay as you go basis. Payments can be taken on the night in cash or by debit or credit card. Rackets can be provided if needed, all you need to bring along is a clean pair of indoor sports shoes.

Everyone is welcome (over 16 years old please, younger players are encouraged to join our Academy sessions) even if you have never hit a shuttle before but we are also keen to recruit anyone who has played the game before and might be a bit ‘rusty’!

From 8.30pm stronger players will be encouraged to jump straight into the social club night which can go on as late as 10.30pm sometimes. From around 9.15pm there is a quiz (including free food) down at the sports club bar which we would enjoy your company at, but is optional!
