Westford, MA Badminton Club

This club was dormant during the 2012 Summer, and it resumed in September, 2012. The 2012 Fall season began on Tuesday 4-Sep-12, and it will continue through 23-Oct-12. There was going to be play on Thursdays in the Fall, but there was not enough interest to schedule these evenings. Thursday play may be offered in the Spring, as it was the previous season. The 2011 Fall Season was only on Thursdays 8-Sep-11 through 27-Oct-11. The 2012 Spring Season was both Tuesdays and Thursdays 20-Mar-12 though 31-May-12, with some skipped nights.

This club meets from 7:00 - 9:30 p.m. on most Tuesdays (Sep-Oct, Mar-May) and Thursdays (Mar-May).

This is an adult activity of the Westford Recreation Department for players at least 18 years old. It started in late March, 2011, and interest has been sufficient to continue with the activity. It is being held at the Westford, MA Blanchard Middle School at 14 West Street in Westford, MA.

Players of all levels are welcome, from beginner/recreational to experienced/advanced. Beginners will be taught. Bring your own racquet. Feathered birds are supplied. There are three courts with taped blue lines.

There has been thus far a wide range of playing abilities of the players. Mostly, play is doubles, but there is ample time for some singles. There is no formal system of choosing who plays - with the current numbers and the willingness of all players to play anyone, this has not been a problem. The ceiling is very high, and bird visibility in general is pretty good.

The front entrance to the school is no longer to be used for this activity. Drive around to the right side of the building to park, and enter the school near the dumpsters. The gym is close to that entrance.

There are two options for paying fees:

You may sign up for a session of several evenings of play for $75 (for a town resident); the non-resident fee may be more. Beginning 18-Aug-12, you may register in person at the Recreation Department Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., by mail, or on-line at: http://www.WestfordRec.com

You may drop in for one night of play for a fee of $12.
