Etwall Dragons Badminton Club

Joining us

*** LADIES ***

During 2019 the club is currently actively recruiting new female members to add to the success of our existing ladies and mixed teams. We welcome new members to come along and play at the club. All we ask is that you play a reasonable 'club standard'. We do not mind what age you are, although we find that children under the age of 14 are unlikely to be of a suitable standard.

*** Male Players ***

Like most UK badminton clubs our male to female player ratio, leans heavily on the male side. Due to limited resources it was determined during the last AGM that we are unavoidably required to consider our male membership to be fully subscribed. The committee have implemented a waiting list for male players who are interested in joining the club once a space is available, which occurs as members retire, move away or are incapacitated by longterm injury or illness. The list will be managed by the committee based on a first come, first served basis. To be considered for a place on the waiting list email the club on enquiries@etwalldragons.co.uk giving a brief summary of you and your badminton experience, depending on court availability it may be possible to arrange a try out on a Monday evening session to let you decide if you wish to be placed on the waiting list.

Membership

At the start of each year, we ask all members to pay a modest club subscription fee. The club also requires all members to be a registered member of Badminton England. The club subscription helps us to pay for shuttlecocks and court fees. The Badminton England registration provides our players with insurance.

The club charges a fee of £4 per practice night. Members who play matches pay £5 per match (home and away). These fees cover the charges for booking courts.

Beginners

For players who haven't played much badminton or who don't want the commitment of joining a badminton club, Etwall Leisure Centre runs a "No Strings" badminton session on a Friday evening. See the 'No Strings' menu link from 'this page' to find out more.
