Handy Badminton Club
...is here to stay!

Our first season competing in the Notts leagues has been a success, with the 1st Mens winning promotion but we donít plan to stop there. The 2019/20 season will see us increase our number of competitive teams from last year and also see the introduction of a ladies team.

Whether you are new to badminton or an experienced League player looking for a fresh challenge, we have a place in our Club for you with a variety of Club sessions available. Donít be mistaken though, weíre not here to make up the numbers and have a clear ambition to continually improve our standard of badminton whilst also making badminton accessible to everyone?

Club nights are on Tuesdays at Arnold Hill Academy 7-10pm on 4 courts, so no long periods off court waiting for a game!

Our membership fees are structured differently to most clubs to offer flexibility of payment and rewards. Ranging from pay weekly, monthly or for the season, as well as free coaching and tactical support included in your membership.

If you would like more information, please contact James on 07871756765, j.hand@hotmail.co.uk or www.handybc.co.uk.

The International Student Badminton Tournament - 22nd June 2019
Badminton fans REJOICE! The International Student Badminton Tournament is returning for another year to the UK!

**You don't have to be a student to enter but you must be 18+**

When: The Tournament is from 9:00am - 5:00pm 22nd June 2019.

Where: Jubilee sports centre 7301 Wollaton Rd, Nottingham NG8 1BB. 8 new beautifully re-floored courts for our sole use.

What: If you enter 2 disciplines you will get a minimum of 4 matches (each match consists of 2 games). There will be a meal for everyone on Saturday night in a restaurant where medals will be handed out (included in the price).

Optional massive social on Saturday night with a fancy dress theme of Myths and Magic

Price: All of this for £25. This covers the court hire, the dinner, medals for every category and any remaining money goes to the fantastic charity SOLIBAD.

Tournament Format:

You can enter up to 2 disciplines from:
Singles, Mixed and doubles.
In the category for your ability:
A: County standard high/ National standard
B: County standard low/ league player high
C: league player low
D: recreational players

Feather shuttles need to be provided by players, except for category D where nylon shuttles will be provided.

A Swiss ladder system will be used. 2 games per match each is first to 21 no setting so it's possible to draw. Everyone is guaranteed the same number of games. If you enter 2 disciplines you should get 8 matches or 16 games!

Partnering: You will be paired with a random partner, not from your own team for mixed and doubles. The tournament is competitive but it is social too. Pairing you with two new people ensures you are introduced to two new teams, who may even be from a different country :) so be prepared to mingle.

By special request you may be paired with a boyfriend/girlfriend/relative however if you are badminton partners this won't be allowed in order to keep it a level playing field for everyone.

ISBT's are an incredible way to take part in a fun, friendly and competitive tournament and meet players from around the world. And the charity we raise money for does a tremendous amount of good.

Badminton love!

Final note:
VERY IMPORTANT FOR MEN PLAYING MIXED: If we run out of female players and you don't have a partner you will be given the option to enter singles as your second discipline instead. If you choose to play in just doubles, the price will remain the same.

VERY IMPORTANT FOR WOMEN PLAYING SINGLES: If there are not enough female players to run singles in the 4 separate categories, the categories will be combined into a handicapped tournament and you will have the option to enter mixed in addition to doubles and singles.
