Social Badminton

  • Every Wednesday from 7.30pm to 10.00pm in the MSAC Badminton hall.

  • Table set up near court 2 for the payment of fees.

  • A whiteboard is used to schedule 20-minute games on all courts.

  • Courts 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 (from mid March onwards)

A limit of 32 players (4 courts) or 40 players (5 courts) guarantees all players can play 3 games/night…….Feathered shuttles provided.

Be dressed in sports clothing — sports shoes with non-marking soles.
If you don’t have a racquet we can lend you one.

If you want a second shuttle during your 20-minute game please bring the damaged shuttle back to the desk and the person at the desk will decide if a new shuttle is justified.
We have to do this as a couple of people are known to gather barely used shuttles for use at other practice/socials

Arrive before 8.00pm and you should be sure of getting a game.

 Wednesday Social

Two committee members run the social night each week and most nights it has been Gary and Kaho or Nigel -You will have seen others assisting recently – and we need extra people to help occasionally.  

If you can arrive at MSAC by around 7:00pm to set up for play and agree not to play before the second game scheduled then you might be able to assist and play for free. Speak to Gary or Kaho and we’ll look at welcoming you aboard our undermanned train.

We currently have Gary, Kaho, Nigel, Subi, Thusi and Daryl assisting on an ad-hoc basis, but some of them play competition on Wednesdays and cannot help.
