Chew Valley Badminton Club offers players of all abilities the opportunity to play, improve at, and enjoy the amazing sport of badminton.

Club nights for seniors take place on Tuesday evenings at Chew Valley Leisure Centre (BS40 8QB) from 8pm until 10pm. Players mix around to play double games throughout the evening.

Coaching sessions for ladies run on Thursday evenings at Chew Valley Leisure Centre from 8pm until 10pm. Run by our qualified coaches, these sessions give women the opportunity to begin or return to the sport. Players can move onto the main senior club, and take part in league matches when they are ready and keen to do so.

Our players range from novices to county players and even a European Masters champion! All are welcome.
