    Howdy all.

    My club plays in the South Manchester (Sale, Stretford, Altrincham) on Tuesday evenings.

    We don't play at county league level, but just below.

    We are currently looking for members to join our club and perhaps play at a competitive level.

    Well, we're still looking (as always) for more players - social or competitive.

    A tad too far for me, Tomsk.

    Anyone for Sugden/Trinity during the weekends?

    Hi guys,

    I have just moved to the area and am looking for somewhere to play. Can anyone give me some advice and info about the various clubs in the area. I am staying in Salfrod Quays but am willing to travel to get a good game.

    Thanks,

    Richard :)

    Well, all current members are >18 (it's impolite to ask the age of a lady;) ), but we do have a reduced rate for under 18s. Visitor fees are currently £4/night.

    Hi all, I'm a newbie in here. :)

    I would like to find a partner to play badminton at weekends in Manchester.

    Where else do you play?

    How much does it costs?

    All our members are adults. However with the end of the league season approaching a few of our members sometimes bring their teenage children along.

    All details of where we play and how much are in this thread.


    Anyone wishing to come down should PM me so I can pass details to our visitors representative.

    We play throughout the summer and visitors are welcome. No pressure for men to join - we're looking for women at the moment to balance the club.
    And our league has just made the switch to feathers, so there'll be some experimentation this summer as we figure out which are the best shuttles we can afford to use!
