Melton Old Grammarians launch summer badminton club

Have your say

Melton Old Grammarians Badminton Club (OGs) are hoping to strengthen their ranks through a new Summer Club which launched this week.

The club meets every Monday from 8-10pm at Long Field Academy where two courts will be available each week. The sessions cost £5 each, payable on the night.

The launch of the Summer Club is the latest in a number of developments at OGs including full coaching for juniors and adults, and a series of open nights to encourage players of all standards to try the sport.

Summer Club organiser Martin Aley said: “We have been aware for some time of a demand for 12 months-a-year badminton in Melton, and OGs are particularly well placed to deliver this.

“We are confident the combination of excellent facilities and feather shuttlecocks, all at a reasonable price, will appeal to both OGs members and members of other clubs in the area seeking a good standard of badminton over the summer months.”
