We are meeting at the George in the tree pub at 7:30pm for our AGM... Read More →
We are a feathers-only badminton club based in Balsall Common who have multiple teams in the local Coventry, Leamington & Solihull leagues, playing mixed doubles, mens doubles and ladies doubles. Our venue is Heart Of England School Sports Hall where we have 4 courts available. Our club and match nights are Wednesdays & Fridays 7-10pm.
The club has been running over 40 years and we have about 25 members who range from lower league standard right up to county/national standard, which makes for some great competitive games in a fun friendly atmosphere.
We're generally open to have new members to join our club - and it's about making sure we're right for each other. As we are a competitive club, ideally you should have played league matches before or for your university team or similar. Even if you dont want to or aren't selected to play regular league matches, we feel it's important to maintain a competitive standard so that our club nights are challenging and fun for everyone.
However, if you do want to play matches, that's even better and you will be eligible for team selection - we look forward to you representing our club!
If you are looking for a new club, please read our how to join page, send us your details and arrange with our new members secretary to come down to one of our club nights where you can have a trial session.
Outside of the normal badminton season (mid-September to mid-April), we run a summer club to give players a chance to play together when there are no usual matches or club nights. We welcome anyone to come - it doesn't matter if you play for another club - the more the merrier! We just want to make use of our available courts, play with different people and avoid becoming too rusty!

One of the key things about joining a badminton club (or attending a match) is how close the venue is to where you live or work. That said, we have members who live some distance away but stay with our club because they love it so much!
Simply enter your postcode and we'll calculate how far away we are and how long it would take to drive to our venue
