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. From Wednesday 2 September the club has been operating with new procedures Badminton England guidance on Covid-19 safety. See our 'Covid-19' page for further information and government advice. At present, play is suspended to comply with requirements in place which will next be reviewed on 16 December so we hope to be able to hold our next club session in January.
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.
Whilst the coronavirus restrictions are in place we will not charge a subscription fee for the 2020/21 winter season (normally £170) but instead visitors will be asked to pay £8 for each session attended, and if invited to join then those session fees will be capped at £168 for the season (from the beginning of September 2020 to the end of April 2021). Membership of Badminton England costs, typically around £15 will be charged separately. For the winter season we use four courts at club nights. If and when matches resume we use two further courts at Roundwood Park School in Harpenden on a Saturday. Match fees are £8.
Occasionally we arrange professional coaching for club members who are interested at a small extra cost.
