UHBC is a friendly club that caters for players of all abilities. Whether you are an experienced league player or new to the game then the club will suit your needs.
We’ve been running for over 30 years and have players from all over Rutland, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire playing every Tuesday evening.
The 2017-18 Season is now underway.
Visitors are always welcome, your first visit is free so come and try us out. Standard visitor fees are £5 a session.
Club nights run every Tuesday from 7:15 – 9:45pm, with matches being played on a mixture of Tuesdays and Thursdays with the 2016-17 season commencing on Tuesday 6th September 2016.
We play at the new Uppingham School Sports Centre, situated on Leicester Road in the picturesque market town of Uppingham. This exciting new facility is open to all members of the local community. It contains a 25m swimming pool, a 50 station fitness studio, 3 squash courts, a gymnasium, 2 dance studios and a 6 court sports hall as well as 12 outdoor tennis courts, and has been home to UHBC for the last two seasons.
The social aspect of the club is just as important to its members, with regular events organised at Christmas and at the end of the season, that are always well attended (as well as a regular after club ‘get together’ at the local watering hole!).
At the 2016/17 AGM it was again agreed that all fees should be held for the 2017/18 season.
To get the best value out of the club it’s best to pay for the season in advance – this costs £85 for the year. You are welcome to pay termly however, the fees are £50 per term. The season runs from 12th September to 19th December 2017 and then again from the 2nd January through to the 24th April 2018. So in total there are 32 nights equating to just over £2.57 a night. This is a saving of £80 if paying £5 visitors fee on the night.
If you would like to pay for the season in advance just download a membership form here and pay by cash or cheque (payable to ‘Uppingham Hill Badminton Club’) and hand it to a committee member on the night.
Guests and visitors are also welcome and pay just £5 per night. Remember, their first visit is FREE.
If you are involved in match nights, there are match fees at £5 per match (to cover the cost of shuttles).
Coaching is offered free of charge on club nights. Our Badminton England qualified coach will be working on strength, footwork and technique in particular, so take advantage of the offer and come and enjoy some structured coaching. So that it does not interfere with club nights too much, it will only be around 15 minutes long for each session during the evening and will be structured to suit everyone.
