Badminton Lunch Time league
We are again working in partnership with the Workplace Challenge and have a new exciting workplace league starting following the May half term break and bookings are now open!
Leading on from the success of other team sports we will be bringing you a Badminton doubles tournament. Teams must consist of a minimum of 1 female and games will be played over a 7 week period. Cost is £1 per person per session and this is to be paid on the day of the match or as an upfront fee of £8 at the first session. Matches will be played at Riverside Ice and Leisure Centre between 12:30-2pm and each game will be allocated a 30-minute time slot to complete the match.
The first session (4th June) will be a training session to introduce you to the sport, the rules and give you a chance to practice with your team mate, we will then start the league the following week. Games run until the 16th of July where points will be added and a winner announced.
League places will be given on a first-come, first-served basis, so sign your team up now to our Badminton workplace league!
