What is SBC Membership?

Membership of Southsea Badminton Club is an optional way to get more involved in your community club and gain access to exclusive benefits.

Membership options for 2023/24

New players will be able to buy membership for the new year from August 2023. Existing members will have priority to be able to renew from an earlier date – check your email inbox.

All memberships are valid from 1 September 2023 until 31 August 2024.

We hope there’s an option for everyone, no matter your time commitment or what you hope to get out of being involved in Southsea Badminton Club.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does Southsea Badminton Club offer membership?

Our club offers membership to define who can attend, stand and vote in the elections of our AGM, as defined in our constitution. It’s not required for players at our club nights, which are still open to anyone who meets the criteria to pay and play.

Do I have to attend the Big Night Out?

No, attendance at our Big Night Out / AGM is entirely optional. But it’s your chance to have your say and vote on the future of your badminton club.

Will I be able to pre-book club events with Membership?

To pre-book our events, you’ll need to join at our new Membership Plus tier.

Can I buy more Club Event Vouchers?

Yes, as part of your membership benefit, you can buy as many 10x Club Event Vouchers as you like. Club Event Vouchers you are given will last 1 year from the purchase date. The vouchers will only give a £7 discount on event bookings (all events are currently £7, meaning they’ll be free). If the price of events change there may be an additional fee required for our events.

Can I buy Club Event Vouchers if I’m not a member?

No, only members may purchase Club Event Vouchers from 1 September 2023. Improver Club players will need to purchase Membership to continue purchasing Club Event Vouchers.

If I can’t make a session, can I transfer my booking?

Only those who have purchased Membership Plus and Membership Annual can request to transfer their bookings to other events, up to twice per month and up to 24 hours prior to the event. All players can request refunds up to 24-hours to the event and can rebook their ticket themselves online. Eventbrite fees may apply. 

If I buy membership am I guaranteed a place in the league team?

No, a team selection process is in place to identify suitable players for our teams. Your membership will cover your league registration fee if you are selected to play.

If I leave the club, can I get a refund?

We’re unable to offer refunds on membership purchases
