A bunch of very friendly folks meet up every Wednesday evening at Blairbeg Hall to play badminton.
The sessions run from October through to the end of May/June, and run from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. Sometimes we play for an extra hour if we have lots of people coming along.
Cost is £2.50 per session, £1.50 for students.
We usually play mixed doubles and depending on numbers turning up on the night most folks get to play around 4 to 8 games. Don’t worry if you don’t have a racquet, you can always borrow one if you want to give it a try, and shuttles are provided. We have quite a lot of different people playing throughout the season – luckily not all at once as there is only one court! Ages range from teenagers to the more mature – not giving too much away by saying we have one or two over 50’s. It has been nice to see a lot of different faces over the years. Abilities also range – from beginners, to those who are returning to badminton after some time, to those who have played more regularly. Most importantly, we try to have a “fun” session!
