Stowmarket Badminton Club has been in operation for many years. In 1963 the club was playing in the Corn Hall in Stowmarket and at that time the subscription fee was £2.2s.6d.
In 1968 the club moved to play in the gymnasium at Stowmarket High School until moving again in 1973 to the Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre.
We currently run both our adult and junior clubs from the Sports Hall in Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre. Some of our club players represent Suffolk in the County teams and the Suffolk Veterans Teams.
We play throughout the year with feather shuttles and have an annual club subscription which runs from September to August.
On March 31st 2008 we were awarded Badminton England Premier Club status after successfully completing the Clubmark quality accreditation scheme. Julia Strong of Badminton England wrote - “The Premier Club and Clubmark standard required commitment, dedication and hard work from both the club and its volunteers". Also..." it demonstrates that we have got strong coaching and effective management in place and that we take equality and child protection issues seriously".
