  • A relaxed environment that allows you to meet new friends and have fun 
  • A coordinator on hand to organise the session and ensure everyone is rotated on court for games 
  • To feel motivated to come back week after week 

NSB offers an alternative to the traditional badminton club model. By removing the annual fee and running sessions on a pay and play basis, you don’t have commit to attending every week. Instead you can access badminton at a time and place that is convenient for youHoweverwe hope that the great experience and value for money will leave you wanting more… 

No Strings Badminton is designed to be an inclusive programme with all ages and abilities welcome.We understand that when sessions become competitive it can be very off putting for beginners or participants that have not played badminton in a while. Therefore, the ethos of the session is centred around fun and not competition and the coordinator will do what they can to ensure players are evenly matched.  

Bring along your own racket if you have one, if not don’t worry as you might be able to borrow one from your NSB venue. Wear comfortable kit and trainers. You’ll be working up a sweat, so don’t forget to bring a water bottle too! 

The course is aimed at beginners and those who are new to the sport and would like to develop their skills to improve their game in either a No Strings sessions or appropriate club session. 

The 6-8-week course is delivered by a Badminton England endorsed coach who will cover all the essential skills required to play the game including, grips, movement, serving, backhand and forehand play.  Your Essentials coach will focus on building your confidence throughout the course through fun and engaging sessions. 

Essentials courses usually cost about £40 but this can vary depending on location and the number of weeks the course is running for.
