Fancy playing some fun, quirky badminton? Then why not join us at our Raveminton event and play badminton under ultra-violet (UV) light!
The sports hall will be lit with UV cannons, with courts marked out using fluorescent UV tape and we will be using yellow plastic shuttles that glow in the dark! For those looking to accessorise, we should have a little extra UV tape which can be used on your racket and a small selection of glow sticks, head bands, UV body crayons etc. If that isn't enough to convince you to pick up a racket and join us, then there will also be a few UV themed challenges with prizes throughout the session!
Check out what happened last year.

Parents in Sport Week will run from 1st - 7th 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 support of this week, we'd like to invite parents / guardians of local junior players to join us for a special Family Badminton session. During the session, parents / guardians will join their child for:
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 6th October from 12pm until 2pm. It will cost £5 per 'parent and child' pair, to help contribute to the cost of the courts.

Hi Everyone, just a quick reminder that there won't be a junior coaching or senior club night session on Wednesday 26th September. This is because Pates have a school event which means we are unable to use the sports hall.
Senior club members are welcome to join us for a pub quiz, from 8pm, at The Greatfield, Caernarvon Road, Cheltenham, GL51 3BW. Please let Kat know if you are coming.
