The Henley Leisure Centre Badminton Club is looking for some new members. They meet at the leisure centre on a Wednesday evening between 8.40pm until 10.40pm (however you can come come and go anytime between these times to suit you). The members are a real friendly group and don’t take the game too seriously. Some of the members have been at the club for 20+ years and another just 6 months. When I visited them on Wednesday night they were picking different partners to play with and playing different opponents. You don’t need to have played the game before – perhaps you’re looking for new ways to make friends or get fit? All you need to bring is a racquet – shuttlecocks are provided.
The club used to play league games but because there is not enough members now they have had to pull out of these. They particularly need more women to be able to restart playing league games.
Chris Spencer who invited me along said, “It’s a really relaxed club session and we’d really welcome new members. If you’re interested, please just come along on a Wednesday evening.”
