Please take the time to peruse the below Q&A's. Should you have any further questions, feel free to contact the organizer directly.
What level of play does P.I. Badminton Club cater for?
The Club aims to cater for all levels: Beginners; Intermediate; Advanced; and any inbetween levels, especially the "absolutely-love-badders-but-not-played-for-ages-and-would-love-to-take-up-again" level.
Who can join and partake in the fun?
Anyone and everyone! The only criteria is that you have fun games in mind, and enjoy meeting others!
What if my plans to attend a particular session change?
Should you decide to change/cancel your reservation (for any given session), please extend due courtesy to the Club and fellow members by reviewing your RSVP, in good time and at your very earliest opportunity.
'No shows' and 'late cancellations' are very much frowned upon, and may result in removal of your membership from the Club.
Is there a dress code? What gear should I bring? What is provided?
- The Club recommends that you wear clothing and footwear suitable for indoor racket sports.
- Changing/shower facilties, vending or drinks machines, and lockers are generally available, although this may differ from venue to venue.
- Each attendee is expected to provide for his/her own badminton racket(s). Failing that, rackets are available for hire at the venue.
- Plastic shuttlecocks will be provided. [Feather shuttlecocks can also be made available, subject to expressed request.]
Is coaching available at badminton sessions?
The Club aims to provide its members with the opportunity to gain some regular coaching, whether it be formally (with a qualified coach), or otherwise. How frequently and to what extent coaching is made available depends entirely on levels of interest and ongoing feedback from members.

What types of matches are played at each session? What scoring system is adopted?
Generally speaking, attendees play doubles matches (be it mixed, or otherwise) and scoring is based upon the new scoring system. This is so that waitng times are kept to a minimum. Singles matches are also permitted, although this will largely depend upon level of attendance.

THE CLUB STRONGLY RECOMMENDS THAT ALL ATTENDEES SUFFICIENTLY STRETCH AND 'WARM-UP' BEFORE COMMENCING PLAY, IN ORDER TO PREVENT INJURY. THE CLUB SHALL NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR ANY INJURY WHATSOEVER OCCURING AT ANYTIME.
