Christmas Social – Sat 11th Dec

We have tried to find a date that is suitable for most people and is not too close to Christmas. This date is Saturday 11th of December. The plan is to do a tour of the fine pubs of Market Harborough on foot. We hope to see as many of you as possible.

More details to follow.

Many thanks 

Tom Wyburn (Social Secretary)

New Season Starts Friday 3rd Sept

We hope you had a good summer and are ready for the new season, which starts on Friday 3rd September (not 27th August as previously communicated). Please see the detailed information below for season dates and club contacts.

We very much hope this year’s badminton will not be as adversely affected by Covid-19 as during the last two seasons. Therefore, we do not intend to use the Playwaze system this year. We will collect club fees as normal and these fees are detailed below.

Please note, an email detailing up to date guidance on Covid-19 from Badminton England will follow shortly.

Club Nights

Club nights will take place at Welland Park Academy, Market Harborough, every Friday from 7.30pm and 9.30pm between the dates listed here:

A full listing of club nights is available at:

Note that on a few occasions during the season, club night may be switched to Meadowdale Primary School due to matches taking place at Welland Park. Members will be notified prior to these dates by email and on the club website.


This season’s club fees are listed here. Club fees are the same as in the 2019-2020 season.

Can you please ensure that your subscriptions are paid by the end of September, any subs received after that will not receive the £10 discount. If you’re intending to play in matches, prompt payment is appreciated so you can be registered. No one will be registered or able to play in matches until their fees are paid.

You can pay your fees by giving cheque/cash to Jim at club night or you can now pay by bank transfer using the details sent by email (contact us if you need these).


We intend to have Mixed Doubles, New Hall Doubles and Men’s teams registered in the Leicestershire leagues.

Once we have the fixtures, they will be available on the club website at

AGM 2021 – Tuesday 3rd August

I hope you’re all well and it’s been great to see some of you at our recent club nights.

Due to COVID, we have again delayed our AGM, which is usually in May. However, the committee has decided that we should now go ahead with this and therefore the Harborough Feathers AGM will take place on Tuesday 3rd August 2021, 7.30pm at 11 Woodgate Close, Market Harborough, LE16 8EX

The AGM is a great opportunity to have your say on how the club is run (including subscription fees, team entries, match nights etc). There should be plenty of discussion as we should hopefully be returning to a more normal club season with fewer restrictions. We would therefore absolutely welcome your attendance and input at the AGM, even if you do not wish to take on a more active role with the club.

Having said that, we are always looking for people to get involved and offer to help on the committee. All committee positions will be up for election at the AGM, including:




Mens Captain

Ladies Captain

Doubles Captain

Welfare Officer(s)

Social Secretary

Fixtures Secretary

Most of the committee roles are not too time consuming and you are welcome to ask myself or one of the existing committee members what the roles involve. Note also that we cannot enter teams into the league(s) without team captains.

If you are interested in any of the roles on the committee or would like to add something to the agenda for discussion at the AGM, then please let me know by Friday 30th July. Likewise, if you are unable to attend and would like something raised, then please let me know at

We hope to see as many of you as possible at the AGM and hopefully on the badminton court later in the summer.

Club Night Cancelled on 18th June

We have decided to cancel the club night planned for Friday 18th June due to this clashing with the England vs Scotland football match, meaning very few members being available to play.

The remaining sessions are now as follows:

  • Friday 11th June
  • Friday 25th June
  • Friday 2nd July

The club nights will be organised under Badminton England COVID-19 guidelines:

  • We are limited to 16 players on 3 courts with social distancing in place when off court.
  • Players must book via Playwaze by Thursday evening and each session will cost £7 to book.
  • Unfortunately, we are not permitted to allow players to arrive on the night without pre-booking.
  • Players will be allocated to a court prior to play starting – on arrival please go directly to your allocated court.
  • New members should contact us before booking or attending.

Please see here for further information before attending.

We hope to see you on court soon.
