If I play for more than one club, do I have to pay an additional Badminton England membership fee?
The answer is no. You will only be required to pay one Badminton England fee even if you play for more than one club. However you may have to pay an additional county fee if that is the particular county’s policy.
If I have paid through the coaching register, do I need to pay again?
No you don’t. Once you have paid your Badminton England membership fees through the coaching register there are no additional fees due for club membership. The online renewal system will recognise this. However, a separate county fee may be due. If you think that you are an affiliated coach and the system is still charging club membership fees then please contact the Education and Training department
If a club has a visitor are they covered by insurance?

Yes, a visitor to a club is covered by the club’s insurance for up to 6 visits. On their 7th visit the player must affiliate to Badminton England and the county. You must keep a visitor book with contact details and dates of attendance, this is for insurance purposes in case a claim is made against the visitor.

Does badminton England take payment online for club fees?

Unfortunately we don't currently have an online payment situation in place. We can take payment over the phone by Visa/Mastercard, once you have placed your order online, give us a call on 01908 268453 with your renewal order number. We will then process the renewal for you.

We are a social club why do we have to affiliate to Badminton England?

Does your club take part in county or league matches?

YES - The club has to be affiliated to play in county or league matches.

NO - Does your club play weekly at a venue with members in a club environment?

If 'YES', then you do have to be affiliated because the other membership types we offer will not give correct insurance cover. If the answer is 'NO', then we do offer a social membership which allows members to play at a venue with their friends socially. Although keep in mind that this is not a club membership, the insurance provided is only for social play.

If our club is affiliated to Badminton England what insurance cover do we receive?
Keeping safe on court is very important. Our members are covered by Sports & Recreation Liability insurance up to £10million. Please note this is not a 'personal accident' cover. An example of the level of cover is when playing against another member and you hit the member in the eye with a shuttle, if that member makes a claim against you, you will be covered by insurance.
