What we're about

Welcome to South West Strings Badminton Club

If you are looking for a purely FUN CLUB to enjoy good games of badminton with and to meet like-minded individuals, look no further as this club is EXACTLY THAT AND MORE!!. We are truly a social club. I set up this club purely to have fun and enjoy the sport of badminton and other fun social activities. We welcome all levels and all players. The games are organized by the organizer/s and are supervised. All session list the fees and all players have agreed to the rules and price of the session when RSVPed a session. There are not many rules here but I do expect everyone to be courteous and respectful to each other and show good sportsmanship. If there are any problems, please refer them to me. If you are joining to prove to everyone how good you are seeking to benefit from the club by taking advantage of its members in any unethical way or have negative intents, this is not the club for you!!
