The Boots and Beards badminton club welcomes everyone from the weak to the mid to the show off. No skills are required other than a willingness to pick up a racquet - and hopefully hitting the shuttle cock. Everyone is reaping the rewards of some friendly competition.

Q: Do I need to be an experienced player to join?
A: Absolutely not! Our group consists of everyone from the beginner level to the slightly advanced. The main goal is to have a good time and not to get bogged down on skills.

Q: How do I join?
A: Join our Whatsapp group and wait for instructions on how to book yourself on the next available slot.

Q: How do I pay?
A: On the day, please bring £5 with you.

Q: I put myself forward but can no longer make it, what is the procedure?
A: If there is someone else on the reserve list, they will take your spot without any cost to you so please let us know in the group if you can no longer make your slot (if you don’t tell us, it means someone else would have missed out on attending when there was one space available!). If no one else is able to take your spot, £5 for your space would still need to be paid to us on your next visit.

Q: Where does the £5 cost go?
A: Whatever money we accumulate is for the badminton group, for instance booking of courts, buying spare rackets and shuttlecocks. Also, this group is all done voluntarily that includes booking the courts, organising participants and also updating the league table.
