Welcome to the longest-established competitive badminton club in the area! We’re always looking for new members, so if you’ve played before and are trying to find somewhere to play with challenging games and a sociable atmosphere, come and give us a try!
Club nights are on Mondays and Fridays between 7.30pm and 9.30pm at Wolverhampton Grammar School, which is easy to find and just a mile from the ring road. The club plays all year round, except for Bank Holidays and a short break at Christmas.
Our membership is broadly-based and ranges from students through to those enjoying a relaxing retirement (more details about membership are available here). We only use quality Yonex feather shuttles, and have several teams competing in the local South Staffs Badminton League with the season running between September and April.
So rather than spending another night watching the telly from your sofa, get your sports kit on, grab your racket and come on down! And if you work up a sweat, you’re always welcome to join us for a ‘cool-down’ drink in the pub afterwards.
Do you take beginners or junior players?
We are always keen to encourage new players into the sport, particularly those who want to join a club so they can improve. However as a competitive club we have to maintain a certain standard to support our teams.
So for beginners looking to learn to play, we would suggest you make enquiries your local leisure centre. They often have introductory courses to help you learn the game, and may also have clubs of social players (who don’t play at a League level) where the standard will be more suitable to learning and helping you to improve.
For younger players who know the game and play regularly at school, we know it is a daunting step to come and play at a proper club, particularly if there aren’t any other youngsters to fit in with. Unfortunately we don’t have the facilities to run a separate junior section or to offer any organised coaching, so if you feel that may be easier we’d suggest you contact Ashton Badminton Club in Kingswinford who have specific sessions for juniors: www.ashtonbadminton.co.uk
