Not much! Just bring your badminton racket if you have one (we should have a spare if not) and a bottle of water. Your first session is free, but remember to bring some money for subs if you return.

How much does it cost?
There's two ways to pay and play
There are two ways to pay for attending the club; either the flexible 'pay as you go' approach or by becoming a member.
Pay As You Go
For those that are just trying out badminton or the club itself, or if you can't commit to attending regularly, paying 'subs' each time you attend is a flexible option that might be right for you.
Seniors: £6 per session.
Juniors: £4 per session.
Remember, your first session is free!
If you can commit to playing regularly and would like to save money, or if you want to play in our League matches, then you should become a member of the club.
There are a number of benefits that come with being a member, including:
- Save money when compared to the 'Pay As You Go' option (Seniors save £28 and Juniors save £32).
- Able to play in our League matches and with no additional match fees.
- Registration with Badminton England (which gives you insurance against injuries while playing, discounts on events and more).
Seniors: £140 for the year.
Juniors: £80 for the year.
You have the option of paying your membership fee in two stages, if you prefer.
If family members join, too, they will receive 10% off their own membership fee.
