Please Note: Due to the current Covid-19 situation the information given below does not apply, until further notice.

We welcome visitors to come down, play and try us out for yourself. You can visit up to 3 times before we ask you to decide whether or not you would like to become a member. Though people usually make up their mind before the fourth visit!
For the visits adults pay £5, students and juniors pay £2.50.

Please see our ‘standards of play’ on the Senior page to decide which session would be most appropriate for you to attend. If you remain unsure as to which night best fits your playing experience please contact the committee. We recommend visitors come down on a Friday first to join in the social evening and from there we can see which nights are suitable for future visits.

As well as the badminton, membership to Abbeydale Park Badminton Club includes membership at the on-site Abbeydale Sports Clubhouse Bar; giving you a relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy a drink or food.
