Club makes appeal for new members

Alfreton Badminton Club has launched a recruitment drive, aimed especially at women and younger players.

The club, which was established in the 1970s, has around 40 playing members and is based at Frederick Gent School, South Normanton, just 100 yards of the M1 at junction 28.

It is a friendly club, which has a social atmosphere and there are opportunities for members to play league badminton with 14 teams for the 2012/13 season.

Also, organised qualified coaching lessons, supported by Badminton England, are available.

Club nights are Tuesday, 7-10pm, at the Fredrick Gent School Sports Hall (four courts).
