We aim to provide safe, enjoyable badminton, and to  coach newcomers and more experienced players, to help them improve. When possible we have matches against other clubs and encourage members to participate in tournaments. 

We achieved BADMINTON England 'Premier' accreditation (the same as Sport England Clubmark) in 2005 for our quality standards and are currently re-applying.
