About Us

AIMS: The aim of the Tuesday Club, for both adults and juniors, whatever their playing level, is to have fun and improve their game and fitness as a result. We will run various coaching sessions and mini-tournaments from time to time. We have very few rules but politeness and fair play is a by-word of all sports and ours is no exception.  We treat each other and the equipment with respect and try and help each player get an equal amount of time on court. 

WHEN?: The Club runs all through the year at The Cooper School in Bicester, Oxfordshire (www.thecooperschool.co.uk), unless the hall is unavailable due to exams or other school functions. The school is manned by Cherwell Council employed staff who are first aiders and responsible for security and suitability of the site.

NOTE TO PARENTS: As a mixed age-group club within a multi-use sports facility, we advise that for those U18’s being dropped off by parents, could parents ensure their child is left only while one of the responsible adults is present and please collect punctually. Please see your child into the sports hall, and pick them up from there at the end. We do not recommend children to wait alone in the car park and cannot take any responsibility once they have left the hall.

If you feel like coming along, you can just turn up on the night and ask for David or Paul.

LATEST NEWS AND EVENTS


2018
  • Improving your game:
      • 1) Who would be interested in an 8-
        week “Essentials” badminton course (serving, grip, footwork, 
        clears, drops, smash etc)?
          • 2) or competing competitively with a different club or school team? 
        That edge of competition will be fun and help raise your game for those who wish to. In the course of the year we will run our own mini tournaments amongst ourselves. Let us know if you are interested in any of this. We will need sufficient numbers and possibly arrange additional court time depending on response.
  • The Bunnings Sausage Sizzle we ran last Saturday, 13th January was very well received 
    and we had great fun. We raised £140 - in the depths of 
    Winter - for our club and took a lot of inquiries from potential 
    new players. So we certainly raised our profile, and we'd like 
    to run another Sizzle in the near future - so watch this space!
