Social Play

No Strings Sessions / Informal Play

Not interested in competitive play? Simply wishing to dust off that racket? Why not try  a “No Strings” badminton session? Or another regular informal badminton session?

These sessions are on a pay and play basis and are organized in conjunction with Badminton England and No Strings. There should be coaches available at each session to help supervise the sessions and provide coaching on request.
