About Mereway Badminton Club

 

A Friendly Northampton Badminton Club For Players Of All Ages

Mereway Badminton Club was first formed in 1976. Since then it has provided a great many people in Northampton with an organised and friendly club at which to enjoy the exciting sport of Badminton.

Having originally started out at Mereway school, over the years we have played at a number of locations in Northampton and now consider ourselves very fortunate to have use of the excellent new facilities at the Wooldale Centre for Learning (Caroline Chisholm School), in Wootton, Northampton, not so far from our original home.

We play on Friday evenings, between 7pm and 10pm and are very happy to welcome players of all ages. Whether you are an experienced player looking for more playing opportunities, or a player who has recently moved to the Northampton area, or perhaps someone returning to the game after a break, if you’re looking for somewhere to play Badminton in Northampton we would love to hear from you.
