Did you know that Badminton is one of the most played sports in the world? For those who already play, this is no surprise, as it is an extremely social and fun game, played either at a casual or competitive level.

As well as power and stamina, Badminton is also a game of tactics, touch and deception – if you want to discover more, why not join the Bourne Badminton section?


The Club has five Badminton courts in total, four of which are in the main Sports Hall, and one in the Old Hall. Depending on membership category chosen, they are available for hire, outside the regular Club session times.

The Bourne Club welcomes all ages and abilities to come and play Badminton.

Sessions at The Bourne

There are 4  Club Night sessions to choose from, which are run throughout the week.  You will find playing Badminton in a friendly atmosphere great fun as well as great exercise – players often meet up in the Club bar for a coffee or a drink after a session.

If you need help in choosing which session is right for you, any one of the Badminton contacts will be very happy to advise.


The Club enters several leagues, including The Guildford League and Aldershot & Camberley League.  Competitions are available for both adults and juniors.

During the year, the Badminton Section holds it’s Annual Tournaments.

POTTER TROPHY (Mens and Ladies Doubles): These trophies were donated to the Club by Tom and Marjorie Potter, two stalwart members over many years. They were first contested in 1984 and it was fitting that the first winner of the Men’s competition was Richard Potter, son of Tom. Since then the event has also been won by Phil Potter, Richard’s son.

Stringfellow Trophy (Mixed Doubles): The oldest trophy in the Badminton section. The Stringfellow trophy is the Club’s open competition for Mixed Doubles. This has always been the premier event in the calendar.  Subject to the number of pairs entered, we will try to run it on a mini-league basis, so that all pairs enjoy a good evening of Badminton. A final will then feature the pairs with the best record over the evening in a play off for the Trophy.
