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. 


Socially Distanced Badminton - How it works

Due to government restrictions we have introduced socially distanced badminton for our Sunday sessions. There will always be two groups of six. Group A (7-9pm) and Group B (7.05-9.05) 2 Volunteers will head up each group. The groups arrive and leave separately, do not mix and set up and put away their own equipment 

Reservations are mandatory via an online booking form on the BLAGGS website and its first come first serve with a reserve list. Payment by BACS only.

COVID -19 Measures

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

  •  We are able to play both singles and doubles badminton providing 2 metre rule is followed as much as possible,
  • We can only play on two courts with the middle court providing extra distancing.  We are required to play in two separate bubbles of six. The maximum number is therefore 12.
  • Each group to arrive and leave separately, to set up separately and  not to mix.
  • Pre-booking is required via our Booking system or email badminton@blagss.org
  • Payment of £6.50 by BACS only.
  • Do not attend badminton if you have COVID symptons. If you are not sure please click here
  • 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). At the end of a match feel free to gently touch racquets instead.
  • 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.
  • For more general guidance please see the Sport England website

The committee will review these rules and procedures in the coming week to decide if we need to consider anything else.
