A welcoming group of competitive badminton players that also like to have fun!

Watford Badminton Club is by far the largest badminton club in the area, with the most diverse range of events. It was formed in April 2011, playing once a week.  Due to the popularity, a second evening was arranged from January 2012 and a third session was added in January 2013.  All three sessions take place in centrally located sports halls.

The club has now expanded to c60 members comprising a diverse range of age groups (18-50+) and backgrounds. The common theme is that everybody enjoys a friendly, yet competitive evening and all are of an intermediate standard or better, in some cases a lot better!!

Each evening the club has exclusive use of the high quality sports halls, with all four courts available for the two hour sessions. Numbers are capped at 24 per evening for the general sessions. These are organised so that all players rotate, playing with different people throughout the evening, with just short breaks between games.

There are a range of competitive events including; an external league, with six other clubs, an internal league, singles tournament, annual doubles tournament, teams tournament and for the best players in the area, a Tuesday pairs tournament. On a regular basis there is a coaching session with a highly regarded external Level 3 coach, for those that wish to improve their technique.

There is an active social dimension to the club with regular activity events arranged throughout the year, for those that wish to participate.  Take a look at the Facebook page.

Badminton is fun, especially when played with a friendly group!
