Please note that tomorrow (Wednesday 13th December) will be our final Club Night of the year. The first Club Night of 2018 will be on Wednesday 3rd January.
However, there's still time to play a little more badminton before the break, with our Club Christmas Tournament on Sunday at Balcarras Sports Centre from 8pm.
Similar to previous years, everyone brings some nibbles to snack on whilst we play some games - players win points for every rally won. There will be a number of ways to 'top up' your score by completing some challenges set by our Chairman, Paul. You can see some of them listed above (click on the graphic for a larger version). Prizes are on offer for the players with the most points at the end!
In addition to this, Paul is running a 'Spot The Shuttlecock' competition. For 50p, you can guess which square the shuttlecock is missing from in this photo. The winner receives £10! Guesses can be made at club tomorrow night, at the tournament on Sunday or by email to Paul (as long as payment is received before the end of the tournament).
If you are going to be attending the tournament on Sunday then please RSVP ASAP so that we can plan appropriately. Thanks!

I'm one of the first to complain about how the UK shuts down as soon as the first bit of snow hits the ground. However, given the number of road accidents that have already been reported today, I think it's safer for people to follow the guidance from our local police and only travel if it is essential.
As such, we are cancelling all of our sessions today (adult and both junior). Sorry to those who felt they could still travel safely and were looking forward to getting out of the house and playing some badminton.
Hopefully you will have fun being outside building a snowman instead. Speaking of which, I'll award a prize to anyone who sends me a photo of them playing badminton with a snowman! ⛄🎁
See you all next week for the last sessions before Christmas!

We had an amazing time running our Raveminton (Ultra-Violet Badminton) event last night! Thank you to all 50 players who turned up to play. We were really pleased to hear that loads of you enjoyed it and want us to run it again next year! The photos that we took during the event have been posted in our photo gallery.

A big thank you to everyone who competed in the Pink Shuttlecock Tournament on Saturday 16th September. In its 5th year, the annual tournament is when we get together to compete against Wandering Star - a badminton club based in Cardiff that Ben D, one of our previous members, plays at. The prize - the coveted 'Pink Shuttlecock'! Every year the tournament keeps on getting bigger and better - so thank you everyone for the support. This year we had a total of 28 players (22 last year), and that included the largest contingent from Cardiff that we've ever had. Unfortunately our first tournament win still eludes us, but I reckon next year will be our year! Congratulations to Wandering Star on their 18-12 win. Some more photos from the day can be found in our photo gallery.
