Rivermead Badminton Club is a mixed club, so we are happy to received male and female badminton players, both as guests and as potential new members. We try, as far as possible, to maintain an equal balance of male and female players.

The majority of the club members are intermediate players. We do encourage new members to have at least a basic ability to be able to play a good standard of mixed games, and a knowledge of the rules and scoring.

Membership subscription costs £24.00 per calendar month (since 1st January 2024), payable by standing order. We don't accept membership payments by any other means. Membership applications can be made in person on club nights or by using the application form.

In return for the monthly subscription the club provides courts, feather shuttlecocks and occasional free coaching to any members who wish to improve their game. The subscription also includes insurance cover from Badminton England. We encourage members to take part in the social events that the club offers from time to time throughout the year. For more information on upcoming meetings and social events please refer to the events calendar.

Guest Membership

You might not want to join a club straight away, you might be visiting the area, or your game might be a bit rusty. If that's the case don't be put off. We welcome guest members to join our club and play with us. For a fee of £6 per night you can join us and take advantage of our facilities and enjoy an evening of friendly, competitive badminton. If you enjoy it, you can then consider whether you might like to join on a more permanent basis. Alternatively if you don't feel you want to commit to playing every week, you can continue to come along as a guest member.

Note that the Club's insurance from Badminton England provides cover for six visits as a guest.

If you are interested in coming along as a guest member or in joining the club and would like more information, please contact the Club Secretary by emailing moc.liamg|bulCdaBdaemreviR#moc.liamg|bulCdaBdaemreviR.
