We are a friendly club, although we are quite competitive! We currently have teams in the South Cambridgeshire League playing in the Premier division for Mens, Ladies and Mixed doubles, and other teams in other divisions too.  We have strong ties with the County teams.

We are one of the oldest and most successful clubs in Cambridge and have recently celebrated our 85th Anniversary! We typically have around 35 adult members, so there is a good mix of people and plenty of opportunity to be on court at clubnights.

We have an active Junior Club, which runs sessions before matches on a Friday night, and on Saturday afternoons. Please see the Junior Club page for details.

Matches are played on Fridays after the Junior Club. Club nights for adults are on Mondays and are of a high standard, but not so competitive. Club nights finish at 10:15pm and there is a contingent that is usually happy to go to the pub afterwards!


No Badminton This Friday

Please be aware that there will be no Hurst sessions this Friday (5th October), either the Juniors at 6:00pm and 7:00pm, or match sessions at 8:00.

This is due to maintenance at Chesterton Community College.

Everything should be back to normal the following week.
