Between 21st August and 15th June it is contract only booking for Badminton.
For the second year running we have purchased a contract for two courts, meaning we will have the same two courts each week during the Autumn and winter.
Places will be limited to just 10 people, 8 will be playing at any one time, with 2 people ready to swap in.
How much is it ?
The price per person is 50kr (applicable only for play between[masked] please bring CASH as you pay the money to the organiser and not the badminton club as the courts are pre-paid for the season. A small part of this cost will go into a fund to pay for shuttlecocks.
Can I hire a racket ?
Yes, Badminton hallen have a racket hire service costing 30kr
They also sell rackets, and repair them.
To be able to play you need to be a member of the Sporty People buffer. Those of you who paid in 100kr last year and still have credit left, this is still valid for season 2013/2014
If you sign up for an event, and either don't show up (for whatever reason) or change your RSVP after 12 noon on the day (without exception) then 50kr will be taken from your buffer.
Why do we do this?
1) to ensure that we have people dedicated to playing and having enough people so that everyone gets maximum enjoyment
2) to ensure that others don't have to share the missing cost by someone not turning up.
Statistics from last year show that the buffer worked.
* The buffer is also valid for Squash and Tennis
If you feel that 1hr badminton is not enough, then at 9.30pm there is no contract booked courts, so it is always possible for us to get additional courts.
It is very usual for many of the players to decide to play for a 2nd hour, splitting the cost of the number of courts taken by the number of players.
What do I need to bring?
We generally play with Mavis 350 blue plastic shuttlecocks and a small part of the cost per person each week pays for shuttlecocks , if you prefer to play with feather shuttlecocks you need to buy your own, but a packet costing 250kr for 10 doesn't last very long.
The event is always very popular. Add yourself to the waiting list if the event becomes full
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.
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.
If you sign up, and cancel after the deadline of 12pm then you will be liable for 50kr towards the event taken from your buffer account.
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.
