About Orpington Badminton Club

• We are Orpington Badminton Club (OBC), one of the oldest in this area, we've been around for almost 70 years!

• We have around 25-30 members, all adults of different ages from 19 to 65. Some who play competitive social to county members.

• OBC sadly does not cater for beginners or juniors.

• We are a non-profit club so at the beginning of the season we just work out the costs of the hall and shuttles and divide it between members.

• We use feather shuttles.

• We have the use of three courts at Darrick Wood Senior School Sports Centre .

• Lighting is good and free of any obstructions. There is free parking.

• There are also changing and shower facilities should you need them.

• We have no clicky groups and always promote fair play. We are a friendly bunch but competitive at the same time.

• We currently use the Ebadders online peg board to record doubles scores throughout the night.  At the end of the session a ranking will be determined.  The ranking is worked out by the number of wins on the night as a percentage.

• OBC traditions promote fairness and getting everyone to have a good night of badminton.

• Orpington Badminton Club is currently affiliated by Badminton England

• We cater for intermediate to experienced players throughout the year in Orpington. 

• We play in league matches against clubs entering in Orpington/North West Kent and Ravensbourne.
