Racqueteers Badminton Club Canterbury

Racqueteers started in Canterbury in 2008 as a semi-social and competitive club, welcoming everyone. Since then it has grown and developed with players of all levels: competitive, novice and social. We play on two evenings a week during the main season (approx Sept to May), our main club night on a Wednesday and our league squad practice on a Friday.

Racqueteers Adults

We meet every Wednesday at Simon Langton Boys School, Canterbury at 7.30 pm till 9.30pm. New members are welcome, regardless of experience, please use the contact form to enquire. £6 per session, for 2 hours, but your first session is free! We invite junior players (age 14+) at our discretion, cost for under 18s is £5 per session.

We have a membership fee of £40 (price correct for 2023/24 season) per annum. However, to make sure you feel ready to join we don't require you to commit until you've been along for a couple of weeks - we want to make sure you enjoy it! As a club member you will also become a member of Badminton England and Kent Badminton, with access to offers, newsletters etc, and be covered by Badminton England's public liability insurance. It will also mean you are eligible to play in league games (subject to selection). All Racqueteers members also get access to our other club nights, so if you are a Canterbury member you can attend the Wye and Dover clubs also.

Our adult club runs for approx 42 weeks of the year, but during the off-season (summer months) we run a weekly summer club, which all members are welcome at.

If Wednesday's don't suit you then you might want to check out Monday night RallyKats or our Wye club on a Tuesday.

Racqueteers League & Competitive Squad

Since 2011 we have been members of the North Foreland Regional Badminton Association. Fielding teams in ladies, mens, mixed and composite divisions. Our league squad practice (and play home matches) on Fridays at 7.30pm at Simon Langton Boys school - players are by invitation only, but we are always on the lookout for people to join our squad and help them to improve to league standard.
