About the Club

Ilkley Badminton Club

Ilkley Badminton Club is a long-established and enthusiastic club in the Wharfe Valley. Members range in age from 16 to 60, and love to play badminton in a friendly atmosphere. We encourage a wide range of abilities and standards of play - from high level local league to recreational players. Please note that we do not cater for beginners or offer coaching, but are pleased to develop people who meet minimum playing standards. We play socially at our weekly club night, but also competitively. There are 6 Ilkley teams in divisions 1 to 4 of the Bradford league (3 mixed, 1 ladies & 2 mens) and also a mens and mixed team in the Leeds league division 3. Our club is ideal for people looking to play a mixture of social and competitive badminton. Club nights are regularly on Tuesdays 19.30 -21.30, at Ilkley Grammar School, Ilkley, LS29 8TR. Home matches are played at St Mary's School, Menston on Thursday evenings 19.15 - 21.50 and away matches can be any night and occasionally at weekends. If you enjoy badminton and would like to visit the club please contact us.
