Wulfrunian Deaf Badminton Club

In February, Zebra Access set up badminton sessions at Aldersley Stadium, Aldersley Rd, Wolverhampton, WV6 9NW. The sessions were held every Monday evening between 6pm and 7pm and cost only £3 per person per session. Unfortunately, Aldersley Stadium are now unable to accommodate the two-hour slot and, therefore, the decision was made to look for an alternative venue within the City of Wolverhampton. This means that on Monday 2nd July, the badminton Club will play their last session at Aldersley Stadium.

On 4th July 2018, a new official club will be established to represent the city of Wolverhampton by the name of Wulfrunian Deaf Badminton Club.

Sessions commence from 4th July onwards on Wednesday evenings from 7pm - 9pm (2 hours) at Wolverhampton Grammar School, Compton Road, WV3 9RB.

There will be no badminton club on Wednesday 11th July. The next one will be Wednesday 18th July.

The regular cost of a session is £4 per person. But the first session is an 'try out' introductory session so you only pay £2 then £4 every week after.

The sessions are for deaf/hard of hearing and hearing people who are local and interested in badminton, with the aim of getting everyone together to socialise, meet new people, have a chat and promote health and wellbeing at the same time.

Please note, it is important that you bring your own badminton racket, wear proper sports attire/trainers and bring a bottle of water.
