Harpenden Racqueteers Badminton Club plays at St George's school in Harpenden. We are affiliated to Badminton England.
Club nights are Wednesday evenings between 8.00 pm and 10.00 pm and we operate separate summer and winter seasons. However, whilst the social distancing advice from the government as a result of the coronavirus outbreak continues, the club is closed. Club nights and matches are suspended.
When these restrictions are lifted we will welcome visitors at any club session, winter or summer. Visitors are welcome to attend up to six club sessions during which membership will be offered by one of the committee members to players of a suitable standard.
We have approximately 30 members, both ladies and men, and enter teams in the South West Hertfordshire Badminton League: Mens 4; Mixed; Ladies 4; and Medley. We play with feather shuttlecocks.
Over the summer months (from the beginning of May to the end of August) we use two courts and subscription fees for 2019 are £90 for new members, plus Badminton England membership if not already a member.
Our subscription fee for the 2019/20 winter season (from the beginning of September to the end of April) is £180 (including Badminton England membership). For the winter season we use four courts at club nights and two further courts at Roundwood Park School in Harpenden for matches on a Saturday. Match fees are £8.
Visitors' fees are £8 and fees paid during the trial period are deducted from the prorated membership fee for the season in which you join.
Occasionally we arrange professional coaching for club members who are interested at a small extra cost.
