Playing

We play each Wednesday night at the Duncraig Leisure Centre from approximately 8-10pm.

Our club encourages all players to get a fair go and so we usually organize games. We have a mix of junior and senior players, usually experienced, and being a mix of members and visitors. Whilst very few of our members are badminton superstars, we ask that new members have an understanding of the rules of the game, scoring, basic shot selection and are willing to work on improving their shots and footwork. Our players are typically Australian Badminton A-Res, B- or C- Grade.

We encourage new members. To become a new member it is necessary that you are an experienced player, come to a social night and have a hit. At this point, we may ask you to register as a visitor and also wish to know whether you may be interested in joining our club.

We host experienced players who are a mix of recreational and competitive levels. We use only quality feather shuttles.
