Welcome to Doncaster Badminton

Waiting List

Please bear in mind that our waiting list now comprises of fifteen names and new players are invited first come, first served.

Feel free to contact us if you still wish to be added to the waiting list and we'll contact you when a space is available and you're at the top of the list.

Please note that priority is offered to adults before juniors.

Where and When

We'll include details of our session times when we re-open for new players.

Equipment

You will need to come in appropriate clothing, maybe bring a drinks bottle and perhaps a hand towel.

Ideally bring your own racquet, however we do have some available to hire for £2 per session but these are limited so must reserve in advance.

We'll take care of shuttlecocks and nets etc.

Skill Level

All levels welcome, incl. beginners and those wanting to return after a break

Players should ideally meet a general minimum standard for their own enjoyment consisting of reasonable dexterity and mobility, good hand eye co-ordination and the ability to achieve a lengthy shuttle clearance.

We do not actively take part in any league fixtures, although league players are welcome to join us for additional practice.

We're here for a bit of fun and fitness. We're not an elitist club.

Format

Our games comprise of doubles that are spread over multiple courts.

We mix up the players after each game so no two games are the same. Your partner in one game may be on the opposite team next time, or even playing on a different court.

Advertise here

As little as £15/mo. Contact us with your requirements
Participation

Just £5 for a 2-hour session.
Cash on the evening, due at the beginning of each session.

We have an informal pay-as-you-play policy so you just pay on the sessions you turn up for.

Attendance

We request that players make the committment to participate regularly.

Players who are absent over a significant number of sessions may be notified that their participation is at risk of being withdrawn if further absences continue.

If that happens, we'll invite the next person on the waiting list.

Showers

Showers are available on-site. However the centre closes at 9pm as we finish our session.

You're welcome to have a shower but must ensure you're finished, dried and ready to leave for 9pm, cutting your session short.

Guests

Players are requested to refrain from inviting guests such as partners, friends or family members etc to our session without prior notice.

This makes it difficult if numbers are high and is also unfair to those on the waiting list.

Juniors

Juniors aged 13-18 are welcome but must be accompanied at all times by a parent or legal guardian.

Its also preferred that the accompanying adult will also participate.

Whilst we're sure that some of our adult players might not mind taking the occasional slow game for a youngster, it is up to the individual players and we cannot make that guarantee on their behalf.

Other Bits

Good clean fun, easy going and friendly atmosphere.

Anything we missed, please just ask.

Socials

On occasion we will arrange an afternoon to get together socially over drinks and a bite to eat.

Totally optional of course but it has a great effect in making the weekly play session more social and friendly.


Details of these socials are announced only during the course of our regular weekly play sessions.
