Membership fees were set at the AGM held in May 2012, are probably the cheapest in the area and represent real value. The full fees are £60 for the season.

Cheques should be made payable to Brighouse Badminton Club.
Brighouse Badminton Community Directory is gradually being developed and needs your help! The purpose of the directory is for club members to share their recomendations of local services, shops and community events. If you know a good plumber, or a good builder, or where to get a new racket, who can fix sports injuries, a good shop.....recomend anything you like....as long as it's local.
Help yourself and others, share your recomendations.
If you are a club member that runs, or works for a local buisness we can advertise that to, just let me know the details.
So.... if you need a re-string or a new racket try looking in the Community Pages
Remember.... the more you recomend the more useful it becomes for other people.
The more useful.... the greater the word of mouth, the greater publicity, the stronger the club becomes.
