to Boston Area MA and Southern NH Badminton Clubs
After two years of no play, this club is resuming on March 2 for play on Mondays and Wednesdays. This is the latest info, updated 27-Feb-22.
There is currently room on both days of the week for new registrations. Players will be accepted until number limits are met.
Please change into a pair of court shows to play - NO STREET SHOES ON GYM FLOOR.
This popular club is now in its 19th year. The Winter/Spring Season is starting 2-Mar-22 for Mondays and 7-Mar-22 for Wednesdays and continues through 13-Jun-22. Known skipped nights are:
Register separately for either day or both days (until the number of available slots are full. Everyone is welcome. The fee is $104 for an individual playing on Mondays or $112 for an individual playing on Wednesdays. Prepaying for the season is required; please bring a check or prepay online; cash cannot be accepted. You may sign up for Mondays only or Wednesdays only or both. When signing up for a particular night, that is the only night of the week you can play without advanced permission.
Registrants may come and try the club for one night free.
Starting in the 2019-2020 Season, on Wednesday nights the club is opening a separate court in the school's small gym for younger folks. These younger folks are only those who have parents registered and present on the Wednesday. The younger folks do not need to register but will need a form filled out on their first night. Only children of registered parents in attendance will be allowed.
Due to popularity, there is no longer an option to attend as a drop-in. The only way to play at this club is to sign up for the season. There is no longer an option to carry over skipped nights into other seasons.
See Doug Deyoe, the coordinator at the door for details and costs, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This activity is held from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. at the Corey Gym, accessible from the lower Church Street entrance of the Carlisle, MA Middle School. The address of the Middle School is 88 School Street, but please use the Church Street entrance and parking lot.
Come join us and find out why this is the fastest sport, why no American has medaled in the Olympics, for over 60 years, why it is great for cross training and how it is different from those lazy backyard outings. Beginner to advanced players are welcome (16 and up, our oldest is 75).
Peers will be available to support you as you learn the basics and transition from the backyard to maybe tournament level play. Advanced players play with peers, but also are asked to team up with others to share ideas and skills. We share and rotate court time. We play in a supportive, positive environment. You will need to bring enthusiasm, a racket (we have them for evaluation, sale and a few to use until you get one) a change of court shoes (no outside shoes in the gym) and water. We provide the shuttles, but you may use your own.
Due to COVID we ask all players to be fully COVID vaccinated and wear a mask at all times. Preregistration thru the Carlisle Recreation Dept. is required. (On site if space is available). No play if schools are closed. You may register for either or both nights for the season.
We will limit the numbers of participants. You will check in each night. Open to those from surrounding towns.
If you want to be on the club's email list, write a note to Doug at email@example.com; once on, it is hard to get off, according to Doug.
If you have other questions, contact Holly Mansfield at HMansfield@CarlisleMA.gov.
