Welcome

Pittville Badminton Club is a friendly, sociable and ambitious club, based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. We are an accredited Premier (Clubmark) Club and have something to offer junior and adult players of all levels of experience. We run weekly club nights for our members to play socially, coaching sessions (both for juniors and adults) to help players improve and arrange club socials and competitions. We also provide the opportunity for our members to represent our club in the local Gloucestershire Badminton League and in county junior competitions.

Parents in Sport Week - Family Badminton

Sat 21 Sep 2019 14:55 Chris Travis

Parents in Sport Week will run from 7th - 13th October this year. Organised by the Child Protection in Sport Unit (a partnership between NSPCC and Sport England), the week aims to highlight the valuable role parents play, and the positive influence they have, in ensuring young people develop to their full potential and enjoy their time playing sport.

In particular, this year's aim is to get parents to make the Sports Parents Promise to encourage their child's safe enjoyment of sport:

  • I promise to make sure the club we choose together is safe and fun
  • I promise to listen to you if you have any concerns about your sport
  • I promise to make sure that I always support you and your teammates in a positive way

In support of this week, we'd like to invite parents / guardians of local junior players to join us for a special Family Badminton session so that they can join in with the fun too. During the session, parents / guardians will join their child for:

  • family challenges (with prizes!)
  • family doubles games
  • parents only / children only doubles games

Family members (older than 18) of any standard are welcome to join in - even if you have never played badminton before! No need to worry if you don't have a racket, we will have plenty available.

The session will take place at Balcarras Sports Centre on Saturday 12th October from 12pm until 2pm. It will cost £5 per 'parent and child' pair, to help contribute to the cost of the courts.

We hope you will be able to join us. Please check your e-mail for details on how to sign up.

Reminder: Wednesday 25th September

Hi Everyone, don't forget that there is no junior coaching session or senior club night on Wednesday 25th September. This is because there is a school event on at Pates Grammar School which means we are unable to use the sports hall. Sessions will resume the week after, on Wednesday 2nd October. See you all then.
