If we are able to book this session then this will be for Secondary Years 7. Until then we are inviting all Year 7 players to join the APS Club on a Wednesday (APS students only).

News: Updated March 2021
APS have said that some sports clubs can restart after Easter but they can only operate for APS students in year group bubbles until restrictions are able to relax.
APS are also short of space, as indoor areas are being used for testing, we will be advised when we can have some court time.
So after a year of very little badminton, it looks like we need to be patient for a while longer.

Bruno and Judith have been pleased to have been able to run a handful of sessions for Yr10s and Yr11s in year group bubbles as an after school club.
However, now that cases are rising exponentially, we will not be delivering any further sessions until case numbers fall to safe levels. The APS site team did mention that they hoped to open the Sports Hall in Feb but we feel this is very unlikely, but it would be great if this turned out to be the case.
The club would like to thank all our young volunteers for their help earlier in the year and we wish them success with their exams.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Alexandra Park School has now confirmed that the sports hall will not be available for the club’s use for the first few weeks of September. Understandably the school is focused on preparations to receive students which means redesigning classrooms, offices and the flow of the whole school.
News: Updated 14.7.20
Hopefully we will be able to resume club activities in September. However, new safeguards will be in place and there will be changes to the way we organise sessions. We have created a specific Covid-19 news page and will keep this updated with the latest information we have. We thanks all players and parents for their patience and continued support.
News: Updated 17.3.20
Badminton England have advised that all group badminton activity should cease.
This is in line with the government’s advice to avoid all non-essential contact. The Club’s priority is to maintain good health for all its members and so has taken the decision to close until further notice. The matches on 29 March have been cancelled. We hope to be back up and running as soon as it is safe to do so.
