The group meets regularly between 9.15 & 10.45 a.m. on a Thursday at the Tremough Campus. This can be reached from Redruth & Truro by reaching Treluswell roundabout (on the Falmouth to Redruth Road) then taking the Helston Road: at the next roundabout keep left back into Penryn and after 2 hundred yards the entrance is on the right. Follow the internal road by bearing right twice, go through the barriers, head straight up turn left at the top of the road and head for Car Parks F and K ahead of you pass the trees. The Sports Hall is on the left in the G car park. Go in and the receptionist will inform where to go.. From Falmouth take the bypass road to Asda pass that and at the next roundabout complex keep right for Penryn and at the Campus entrance on the right follow the above route in to the Sports Hall. If you wish to play just turn up on the day, or contact me (Eric Rabjohns, Group Leader – see above)
We are an enthusiastic and friendly bunch, who welcome new members. You do not have to be a seasoned badminton pro to join just fit enough to play and keen. Equipment wise just standard wear for sport i.e. no embellishments that might prove a danger to you or other members! Although trainers etc must not have a sole that marks the floor surface ( black ones being the main culprits). We do have spare rackets if you wish to have a try.
The first photo shows the two courts we play on; very modern and of top quality. Last Christmas time we had a Knockout Shuttle-cockers Tournament. The second photo shows the finalists, Adrian and Les against Roger and Terry. The latter pair winning.
