  • DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU HAVE COVID or COVID-LIKE SYMPTOMS even if you have tested Covid negative. If you are symptomatic, you should remain at home.
  • Remember to sanitise your hands.
  • No handshakes, racquet taps  instead at the end of games please
  • Remember to take your turn to help with putting away equipment, cleaning and tidying up at the end of the night at Nagle.
The same membership fees will apply whether you play Wednesdays, Fridays or both as our overheads are the same.
We have heavily subsidized the last year and BARC Fridays to encourage players back to badminton using Covid grants and our using up our stockpile of shuttlecocks bought for the start of the 2020 season.
Will there be a competition?
This depends on player interest, numbers and their commitment to attend regularly. We can run a competition either accruing individual or team points or both if there is enough interest.
