    Hi, I am actually looking for more venues to book badminton courts at around Wolverhampton. I have the usual candidates such as, Aldersley, Compton and St Peters, anyone know any other places though? Also if anyone is up for playing some time, let me know, I am not a great standard, but I am not bad either, i'm all up for playing for fun anyway. :D

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I normally play with Tiki badminton club but it's off for the summer. But it's not bad now anyway, I organize badminton at Aldersley usually 8-10, every Tuesday, until Tiki starts back up again. But thanks for the response, if anyone's interested in joining us there at Aldersley, just pm me or post a message here. :)

    i usually play at aldersley with a friend but it is getting annoying having to book a court each week and we can never get the slots we want and a lot of the time we miss out. how does it work with the club/prices etc? we are both beginners/intermediate... cheers

    Yeah it is difficult to get the slots you wish to, well, if you would like to come have a look, we do book Aldersley 8-10, Tuesdays, and there are a good few of us. But with the club you can pay a one off fee for the year and that pays for the entire badminton season, I can't remember the price. Or it is £3.50 per session which lasts 2 hours. They also have a league team, 3 teams to be precise 1 in division 1 and two in division 2. But if you want to speak to the organizer of that club, Graham Jebb, I can pm you his contact details. Any levels of ability are fine, as I am not that great myself either :p. So let me know :).

    The standard varies. We do have quite a few club/league players as well as a european number 1 at u15s level. You can certainly get some good games :).

    A shame that. Hopefully your injury clears up soon. Let me know if you are coming next week. If you can't get in touch with me here, then contact me at the tiki website www.tikibadminton.co.uk. I am always keeping an eye on it :).
