Welcome to Highworth DA Badminton Club

The club is always looking for new, or returning, badminton players, be they social or competitive.  We do endeavour to make badminton fun and sociable, as it should be. If you are interested in trying us out please either drop me a line at racketbag72@gmail.com – for more information – or come along to one of our club nights. Your first visit is FREE, just bring yourself (and a friend!) and a racket.

Badminton is one of the few sports where both men and women can compete together in the same arena. The club are actively trying to encourage more ladies to play and take part either socially, and/or in the league, and/or in mixed doubles. So if you'd like to give it a go, we would certainly welcome you along.

Although we aren't suited to take on absolute beginners, the club does encourage those that have played socially, to try and take it to the next level and we can ensure that time and practice with us will pay dividends in your play and skills – we have many players who are regular team players, who once used to just have a 'knockabout' socially and have made the step up successfully. Our players ages range from late teens to mid 70's. 

We have several players who have returned to the sport after time away - so no excuses about "I haven't played for several years…" It's like riding a bike, after a few week's you'll be back in the swing of it. (your bones might ache a bit more than they used too, but that comes with the territory!)

This coming season, along with our social club nights, the club will be entering teams in Men's Division 2, Division 5 and Division 6; Ladies in Division 2; Mixed Doubles two teams in Division 4 and Division 6 and a Veterans Division 1 & 2 in the Swindon & District Badminton League. So something for all abilities in there.  We will also put teams into the county club competitions and the District's Bicknell Trophy (knockout handicapped Tournament).
