Club membership is here
We have a big announcement… Today we’re excited to introduce our new annual membership for anyone who wants to get more involved in the club you know and love.
This membership is open to anyone, and remains optional for those still wanting to come along for our flexible pay and play club nights
A big part of being involved in a sports club is joining a thriving community – whether that’s getting to know fellow players at socials, partnering up to play in the league, or wearing our team colours loud and proud. So we wanted to make membership about improving your club experience.
Why become a member?
There are a number of benefits that come along with being a member. You can:
- Represent the club in local league teams
- Get exclusive access to club kit
- Influence how SBC is run – you can vote at club AGMs and run for committee positions
- Receive select discounts from suppliers
- Benefit from ‘early bird’ booking for club socials
- Join dedicated training and development sessions
- Have a warm fuzzy feeling from helping contribute to the community’s growth

Investing in our community
Help us build our club and badminton community by becoming a member for just £10. It’s the same price as two club nights, or a couple of pints – to be able support and get involved in your badminton club for a whole year. The funds raised will be reinvested in the club and cover your league registration fees if you want to play for the club in the upcoming season.
It goes without saying that the committee is entirely made up of unpaid volunteers. We are a truly not-for-profit club and we will be absolutely transparent about where the money goes. Over the year we hope we’ll be able to show you how every penny of club income, including membership, is being carefully managed and reinvested in the community itself.
If you have any questions or suggestions for how we can improve our membership offer, or to sign up as a member please do speak to a committee member at your next session – we’d love to hear your thoughts!
Finally, regardless of whether you decide to become an SBC member or not, we’d like to thank you all for your ongoing support for our club. It’s only with your support that we’ll be able to continue to grow as a club and offer everyone a fantastic place to play the sport we love.
