We are a competitive yet friendly club who play at Great Academy (Formerly New Charter Academy), Broadoak Road, Ashton-under-Lyne, OL6 8RF

To find us, click here.

On entering through the main gates, follow the road onto the paved area to the left of the school buildings towards the football pitches and around the back of the buildings to a parking area. From the car park, walk along the left hand side of the school and enter through the final door before the far corner of the building. Go up a flight of stairs and the sports hall is on the right along the corridor.

Club night is Thursday 7.30 - 10.00 pm throughout the year.

Home league matches are played on Thursday nights at 7.30pm during the badminton season from late September to April.

We play both level and mixed doubles.

Fees are 30 per year payable in August plus a monthly standing order of 20 per month and a small charge for playing league matches.

Concessionary membership rates are available for 16-18 year olds.

Guests of a decent standard are welcome at a cost of 6.00 per week for a maximum of four weeks, after which they will be invited to join should they be of a sufficient level to hold their own in club night games.

We are sorry, but we are unable to admit beginners due to lack of coaching facilities and limited court time.

The club runs three teams in the Manchester Badminton League and Tameside Badminton League.

As well as the badminton, we have a varied social calendar, see the social page for details of our upcoming events.
