Newport Badminton Club (formerly Lliswerry Badminton Club) is a large club with approx 20+ members. We use 4 courts weekly at Bettws Leisure Centre (Newport Active Living centre). We are currently accepting new members.
Our club enters teams to play in the mens, ladies and mixed leagues and a team into the cup competition. We also host youth coaching on Thursdays at Pill Millenium Centre – see below.
Visitors and potential members are asked to contact Sylvia or Mark on first visit. potential members first visit is free. Otherwise visitor fees are £6 per session.
Newport Badminton Club is the only league standard badminton club within the city of Newport. We cater for club level players with an aim to play in the Gwent leagues. We try to keep a social atmosphere but work hard to do well in league matches.
Members pay £20 per month to cover court fees, shuttles and association fees. Club nights are generally kept for training and social badminton, while matches are on a separate night. Feather shuttles are supplied.
Our typical members are adults over the age of 16 who can play club level badminton.
