BADMINTON SESSIONS

This page provides some details and a guide to the various public sessions, practice sessions, rosters, tournaments etc  which are conducted at the
 Badminton Centre.


Online Bookings

You can book your own court for you and your friends to play on. This is at a cost of $45 per court for a 2 hour session and can be done via our online booking system. We are offering sessions during the afternoon and evening of a weekday and also two separate afternoon sessions on the weekends. We are currently not loaning out racquets, however it is possible to buy shuttles at the reception ($3 for one or $33 for twelve). Please also be conscious of other sessions and bookings that may be occurring at the same time and ensure your behaviour and language is moderated accordingly.

ROSTERS:

August Lightning Roster

This competition will run for four weeks, commencing on the week of the 3rd of August and concluding the week of the 24th of August. We are offering three events:

1) Combined open doubles – played out on Monday and Tuesday evenings

2) Ladies only doubles – played out on Wednesday evenings (subject to numbers)

3) Combined open singles – played out on Thursday evenings

Combined events are open to both male and female players – everyone will be ranked according to their skill level.

Each event costs $40 upfront and players are welcome to enter multiple events.

Players of a division 1/2 standard are likely to play Tuesday evenings, while players of a division 3/4 are likely to play on Monday evenings. For players who are borderline division 2/3, you may need to be able to play on alternating nights each week due to the promotion or relegation from each side of the competition, this will only impact those moving up or down from the top and bottom pools each week (maximum of two people each week).

In addition to the $40 entry fee, players will also be responsible for supplying shuttles each week. Traditionally, each player generally needs to supply 1 or 2 shuttles each week (the exact amount will be determined by your pool at the start of each night). Shuttles are available to purchase from the canteen, via cashless payments only.

Entries for this competition close on Thursday the 30th of July.

Hobart Ladies Badminton, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings 9:30 am to 12 noon.
The Hobart Ladies Badminton Association conduct 3 sessions each week, (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings). If you would like to join one of these sessions, please visit the
HLBA website.
