Club season  2020 - 2021

Player graphicThe Badminton club reopened for social play on 9th September. Initially the club will run until Christmas 2020, at which point we hope to have a better idea of the circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 outbreak.

A booking system is in place, so don't just turn up. Last season's members should have received an e-mail explaining the process. If you did not receive the e-mail, contact us at for details.

Currently (as at 10th September), doubles play is permitted and face masks are not required while on-court, but they should be worn in communal areas where social distancing is difficult. Check the LED Sidmouth Sports Centre website for further details. Also, be aware of  Badminton England's advice about club play.

We do not know when Exeter & District Badminton League matches will resume.
