Scoring

Games are played to 21 points, using the standard badminton scoring system.

Pegboard

All our doubles nights operate a pegboard system, to ensure everyone gets a fair number of games.

Capacity

Occasionally, our sessions are over-subscribed, so to ensure attendees get a decent number of games, we reserve the right to play games to 15 points rather than 21 and/or cap the numbers at a particular session.

Dress

All players are required to wear appropriate sports kit, including shoes with non-marking soles.
