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.

Hi Everyone, you will be pleased to hear that our league match schedule has worked in our favour this year, allowing our annual club christmas tournament to return to the 'final club night of the year' i.e. Wednesday 19th December.
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 again. For 50p, you can guess which square the shuttlecock is missing from in this photo. The winner receives £10! Guesses can be made at the tournament on Wednesday or by email to Paul (as long as payment is received before the end of the tournament).
Please note that the first club night of 2019 will be on Wednesday 9th January.
See you all on the 19th!

Don't forget that there is no junior coaching or club night session this evening. This is due to a school event taking place at Pates' Grammar School, which means we are unable to use the sports hall. Back to normal next week. See you all then.

Last weekend we ran our Raveminton event and were really pleased that 57 players could join us to play badminton under UV light. It sounds like everyone really 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 helped run the event - we couldn't do it without you!

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.
