Westgate/Acorn Badminton Club

We are a sociable badminton club, that also enjoys competitive play in the Tees Active Badminton League and the Darlington & District League. We play with feather shuttlecocks.

Westgate Badminton Club is a Badminton England accredited “Premier Club” and we have qualified coaches, qualified referees and county players in the club.

The club has Ladies' doubles, Gents' doubles and mixed doubles teams in the leagues and we are short of ladies at present so if you want to play in a team, now is a good time to join us!

Club Night is Monday from 8pm to 10pm. Home matches are played on Wednesday nights from 8pm to 10pm using the great facilities at the Acorn Centre. At the present time we don’t cater for beginners in the club, but there are sessions at The Rainbow Centre in Coulby and at Thornaby Pavillion if you haven’t played before. Our lead coach is also available for private coaching.

The club likes to welcome visitors, (up to 3 visits during the winter season or multiple visits during the off-season May-Sept) Fee is £5 which includes court hire & feather shuttle use. (Visitors fees paid during the winter season are netted off new member subs) To avoid disappointment please contact one of the Club's contacts, before coming down, to check that Club night is running rather than a match or other special event. (Also we will not allow more than 4 visitors on a busy club night, on a bookable basis or first come-first served basis, so please check with us before arriving.)
