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 2018-19 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 2018-19 season commencing on Tuesday 4th September 2018.
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!).
To get the best value out of the club it’s best to pay for the season in advance – this costs £110 for the year. You are welcome to pay termly however, the fees are £70 per term. The season runs from 4th September to 18th December 2018 and then again from the 8th January through to the 30th April 2019. So in total there are 34 nights equating to just over £3.24 a night. This is a saving of £60 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).
We welcome players of all abilities and skills and operate a peg-board system which ensures you play with a variety of members during the night. Our experienced members will happily provide advice and coaching to those looking to improve their game during club nights.
