Friday Badminton

We have exclusive use (with IVC) of the excellent Sports Hall at King Edwards Girls School on Edgbaston Park Rd next to Birmingham University.

There are four courts and we split them into an expert one at one end, a beginners one at the other and intermediate in between so there's room for players of all abilities.

We have use of the Hall from 7:30 to 9:00 and play in three 20 minute sessions finishing up with one 30 minute session. 20 minute sessions are £1 a time, the 30 minute one is £1.50. Afterwards quite a few people go for a drink at the Selly Park Tavern nearby.

For insurance reasons you have to take out temporary membership which lasts for 3 months and is only £5. On your first night all your sessions are free for you. Normally this would cost £4.50 so the membership is only costing you 50p (name and address needed).
 
On your first night please get there about 7:15-7:20 and just say that you're from Meetup. Please RSVP so we know you're coming.

We also play on Wednesday nights, same place, same times so once you're joined up you can come to either or both.

Parking on site (except when there's a school function on).

Catch any bus from City Centre that goes down Bristol Rd (61, 62, 63 from Corporation St) and get off at the junction of Bristol Rd and Edgbaston Park Rd. About a 10-15 minute easy walk from University Station on the Cross-City line.
