I might be staying in Malvern for a couple of weeks in October. Is there any badminton clubs operating in that area?

wow. nice. I went to Malvern College.
it is a very pretty area. unfortunately, aside from the school where the school kids plays, i don't know of any where which has badminton.

Ah... thanks Kwun! My Grandma lives in Malvern now so I will be visiting her. Guess I may have to leave my gear behind for two weeks. Geez I might get the shakes if I don't play for too long .

wow. that's a beautiful British countryside. she found a very nice place to live.
if you ever visit Malvern College, just imagine a very young kwun with his rackets in hand, walking in the snow down the path in the college green down towards the gym for an afternoon of badminton. ah... the sweet memories.

Haha! Very small world indeed. I can't imagine our lives being so intertwined yet living in different parts of the world.

I just found Malvern Hills Badminton Club playing Mondays and Thursday nights at Malvern College Sports Hall. Could anybody from the area tell me how competitive they are? Is there a sign up sheet/board for drop-in players or does one just hold his palm together and pray that he gets invited into games? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

check the Worcestershire league and clubs and this club too
or travel abit further into Birmigham, you will find more clubs too.
I did know that Kwun was in UK? What years were you in Malvern? if 20yrs that is probably around 1990

I'm living near Bath now, moved back from Bangkok. Although Bath Uni is famous for its Team Bath high level coaching school, normal clubs do not play to a high standard there - have to travel to Bristol for that.

Looks like I don't get to go to Malvern afterall. My grandma is coming to visit in August. Sorry I won't be taking pictures for your college memory lane. I was looking forward to visiting too.

Malvern Bound! Tickets bought and will be around the area for 3 weeks starting October. I might not get to play while visiting there but I will bring minimal amount of gear just in case .

3 Straight nights of baddy this week
I just want to thank Malvern Hills Badminton Club and Worcester Badminton Club for having me in their regular nights games on Monday and Wednesday. The games were great and people were very friendly. I would love to play more but unfortunately I had to cut short my baddy drop-ins due to changes in our travel arrangement to cut the commuting time to the airport next week.
Skanbuzz, thanks again for pointing me in the right direction! Perhaps next time I could check out the clubs in Birmingham.
