There are opportunities to play in various teams in local leagues, or purely on a social basis during club nights.

Juniors - Tailored coaching for boys & girls from 9-16 years of age, with potential to progress to match-play alongside our Senior Members for invited students aged 17-18 (who have qualified by previously attending our 'silver' Junior coaching sessions). Mid September to early April (excluding school holidays for U16's).

Every Wednesday, at the Ashcombe School Sports Hall*, OR every Thursday at Dorking Sports Centre*.
* PLEASE NOTE - You must apply for membership of Dorking Badminton Club first. These are not 'turn up and play' sessions.

FOOTNOTE:- [31/08/19] Due to an unprecedented number of applications (for the Junior Section), we are currently having to put all new enquiries on a standby list as we are oversubscribed, in spite of opening up the satellite session at the Dorking Sports Centre. Do not let this deter you from applying as we were unable to offer first choice (of day) to all applicants, so there's a chance of places becoming available if second option is declined.
