Basingstoke Racketeers Badminton Club
After more than 25 years of playing at Aldworth School, as the Aldworth 8:30 Badminton Club, and after much discussion the club has decided to move location to the Everest Community Academy which has a more modern sports hall facility and provided the opportunity to play for a longer 2 hour session. With the move obviously required a change in club name.
From April 2018 the club became the Basingstoke Racketeers Badminton Club, playing at Everest Health and Leisure Club, Everest Community Academy, Oxford Way, RG24 9UP, playing Thursday evenings 20:00 – 22:00.
We are a friendly, sociable non-league badminton club with a wide range of age, abilities and styles, playing for fitness and pleasure and partake in the occasional competition. We have players of all levels, who enjoy challenging fun games. As long as you are 18+, have played badminton before, even if it was when you were younger, you’ll fit right in.
Mark Chilton, Club Chairman explains:
“The essence of the club is to play Badminton in a friendly environment for exercise, and pleasure. We invariably play doubles, both mixed and same sex and whilst we all play to win and enjoy ‘being’/’trying to be’ competitive we do not take ourselves too seriously. Exercise and fun is what it is about”
