What we're about

The group started with MeetUp regulars who played social badminton on a Monday evening at Berkhamsted Leisure Centre. That is still our signature event, but we have now expanded to other centres in different areas, and occasionally other racket (or bat) sports such as tennis, table tennis and squash - or anything similar - and I am now looking to expand things further.

New members are of course welcome to join our merry group to keep us on our toes - as we are getting to know our opponents too well! If you have never picked up a racket before, want competitive matches or to play in a league, then this isn’t for you. Beyond that, it doesn’t matter what standard you are, as we mix up the teams throughout the session.

It’s not all play though. Sometimes we go to the pub afterwards, and some members feel this ought to happen more regularly ... well, you know what to do! We may also have the occasional get-together where we don’t lift a racket!

You are welcome to organise and host your own event, even just to book a court/table and see who else wants to come along, provided it doesn’t clash with the same activity already on the programme. Several of us are event hosts on other MeetUp groups so can help with that.

Monday Evening Badminton - Berkhamsted

Needs a location

£4.75

This is a long-running regular event. Regulars will know what to do, but for everyone else ...

Get your first weekly exercise in early! All levels and new players welcome. We usually play doubles, and will move players around to mix things up a bit.

Bring your own racquet, or enquire with the centre to see if they are hiring them out now (arrive early if you need to hire a racket). Shuttlecocks will be provided.

If you want to play, but the event is full, then add a comment below and I’ll see about booking another court. However, only do so if you can definitely make the event, because a further court costs money!

If you can no longer attend at any time before the event commences, please change your RSVP to "No" so that any latecomers might be able to attend if the event is shown as full.
