Key changes to membership

What are the key changes?

Club Affiliation
Clubs will now formally affiliate. A club subscription will be offset by a decrease in their individual club member’s Badminton England subscriptions. As an affiliated club you will receive improved services, benefits, and tools that will help the running of your club.
Season Competition Licence
For those individuals that wish to play in selected Badminton England sanctioned competitions they will be required to obtain a Competition Licence for the season (part of the Compete membership product). For those without a licence, there will be a £5 player fee per competition. 
Affiliation period / Season
To allow clubs more time to prepare for the season we have brought forward the 2017/18 season to run from 1 September until 31 August. This will remain for subsequent seasons.  
Badminton England GoMembership Administration System
The new GoMembership administration system offers a simple and efficient way for clubs and counties to manage memberships, payments, club night bookings and much more.
Membership offer
We are introducing membership options that are more relevant to the player. There will be lower-cost membership options for those not competing, Play or Fan, whilst those competitive players taking part in sanctioned events can save money with a Compete membership which includes the Competition Licence. The list of selected Badminton England sanctioned events can be found on our FAQs page.
