Badminton Club - Every Wednesday

  • May 8, 2013 · 8:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

All,

Badminton, lets get together and play.

 

We as Stockholm Sporty People have invested in a contract for two courts every week until June 2013. This means we will have at the same time every week two courts for one hour from 8.30pm until 9,30pm

Those of us wanting to play for two hours, decide after the first hour, and we carry on with the necessary number of courts.

We will now be playing with Yonex Mavis 350 Medium blue shuttles, we have invested in 24, which should last us a lot longer and mean we can keep the price down.

Price now is 60kr per hour, for the first hour and 40kr extra if we take extra courts for the 2nd hour.  Making the cost maximum 100kr

The event is always very popular.

 

If you are new to the group, you need to follow the instructions below.

 

To ensure that we have people RSVP'ing who will attend, we have created a membership. See below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before reading the details of the event, an explanation of the rules for booking badminton with us.

 

To be part of our badminton club, you need to deposit 100kr in your badminton  account buffer.

 

What does this mean ?

 

One of the problems in the past with booking for events such as badminton and tennis has been that there has been too many late cancellations and no-shows. This has on occasions meant we have booked courts that we did not use, and the cost of this was then needed to be shared by the people who did attend.

 

How does it work?

 

Each person wanting to play badminton puts 100kr in a badminton buffer account, you will receive the information when you RSVP yes.

If you do not receive the information (Because you used a smartphone to RSVP), then please contact me direct. Andy Foster

 

The money will stay untouched in the account provided that you show up, or don't cancel close to the event (The cut off is 2pm on the Tuesday, the day before).

 

If you do cancel after the Tuesday deadline, or you just don't show up, then 50kr will be taken from your buffer account.

 

What if I don't want to play badminton with the group anymore?

 

If at any time you would like to close your buffer account, then any money remaining will be given back to you.

 

Why do we need to do this?

 

We as organisers, have invested money up front to pay for a 10 month contract to ensure we can play badminton every week, we don't want the responsibility of either paying for a court we don't use, due to people canceling late on, or just not showing up.

 

Sometimes work dictates that you can't make it, but unfortunately we still have to pay for the court if we cancel in the final 24 hrs.

 

The details


We have booked two courts, but in the event that there is not a minimum of 4 people signed in, then one of the courts will be cancelled 24 hrs earlier to save us paying for a court we will not use.

 

The Cost

 

Price is 80 SEK per person, per hour.

You will either be playing singles, or doubles depending on the number who show up.

 

Cancellation

 

If you sign up, and cancel after the deadline of Tuesday (day before) at 2pm, then you will be liable for 50kr towards the event taken from your buffer account.

We must book the courts in advance, and cancellations can only take place up till 24 hrs before.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Directions:

From the T-Bana at Skansktull, take the Ringvägen exit and come out by the side of Clarion Hotel where you follow the path down to Erikdahlsbadet, when you arrive there near the reception, take the stairs left and

down and you should see a big green building, BadmintonHallen.

 

You can come by car, parking is just outside at Eriksdahlsbadet and costs 20kr for 3 hours parking but if you arrive before 18.00 (i.e. 17.58) buy your ticket you get 3 hrs for just 10kr.

    Does someone have an extra racket I could use tonight? I've only played on the lawn while drinking beer with the other hand so I might need a refresher on the exact rules come game time if that's OK?

    I like to play with these nylon Yonex shuttles. Some credit to me for testing Yonex shuttles a month ago ;)

  • Andy

    Yonex blue nylon shuttlecocks now purchased (24 of them) and will be used from now on. This reduces the cost (as they should last longer) so from this week it is 60kr for the first hour, and if we taken extra courts at 8.30pm it is 40kr extra per person - 100kr in total.
