Badminton

The BLAGSS badminton group are a mixed ability group who play doubles and mixed doubles games.

All interested badminton players are welcome to come along. We have players with a wide range of abilities, so you should be able to have some good matches whether you're an experienced player or haven't played for years.

Players range from league-level players to beginners and the group is truly mixed ability, giving everyone the opportunity to have a fun-filled evening.

COVID -19 Measures

These are the current COVID-19 measures in place for Badminton

  • Please bring your own sanitising gel for use during the session
  • Stay at least two metres away from other players as far as possible WHEN TAKING BREAKS BEFORE & AFTER PLAY
  • Do not make physical contact with other players ( such as shaking hands or high fiving)
  • Do not chase the shuttlecock on another court if other players are playing on the court
  • For doubles, agree in advance which player will take the shot if a shuttle travels to the centre of the court. Usually its the player who can use their forehand but if playing with a left hander decide who.
  • We keep an attendance record for Track and Trace.
  • Wipe down equipment after use including shuttlecocks between each game
  • All players must come into the building in their sports kit. The showers will not be available for use.

The committee will review these rules and procedures in the coming week to decide if we need to consider anything else. We are also mindful about whether the maximum number is correct or not.  We are also considering temperature checks. Watch this space.
