We are pleased to announce exciting expansion plans at Stratton Polska badminton club.
From the 30th June 2021, Stratton Polska Badminton Club will be moving to New College Sports Centre. Our previous Thursday club night will then be called the ‘Performance club night‘.
In the last few years Stratton Polska has been resolute in maintaining a high standard of play at club night in Swindon. We have invited players from far and wide to come experience a great club night, creating just what strong players want, hard fought competition in every game.
During the national lockdown we started to prepare our future plans. We wanted to keep expanding our competitive night and inviting people whether they were registered league players or guests. However our limited court space and uncertainties about regular bookings meant we couldn’t think about expansion until we had a venue to suit.
New College recently became available..
Due to the sad closure of a large Swindon badminton club, court space became availability at New College Sports Centre in Swindon. From our restricted limit of 2 courts for 2 hours on a Thursday night, suddenly we had the chance to take on a full 4 court hall for 3 hours on a Wednesday night. With limited hall space across Swindon we made to decision to secure our plans and the next stage of the clubs development.
That’s not all..
In addition to the Wednesday night, we have the opportunity to take on Friday night. The club that folded left behind many players, both competitive and social still looking for a game. We have always wanted to have a club that welcomes all with a place to support and develop players if they are not (or have no desire) playing at a higher level.
The exciting news is that we are in process of setting up this Friday night badminton club. More news to follow on this.
