 CORONA VIRUS UPDATE

Lanarkshire Leisure Centre Availability for Badminton Court Bookings

 

Currently badminton courts can be booked for singles in the following Lanarkshire Sports Centres:

 

South Lanarkshire:  Carluke

 

North Lanarkshire : Broadwood, Tryst, Airdrie, Ravenscraig, and Wishaw

 

There are no plans to enable doubles until the government changes its guidance on social distancing  The current six players to a court rule will also affect clubs making bookings.

 

Many of our clubs also play in schools. Currently there are no after school lets available to badminton  It looks like this will not change until the New Year. 

 

We will post any significant changes to availability when we have new information.

Due to the continuing Covid -19 situation the Lanarkshire Social Doubles Tournament we had planned to play at the Alistair McCoist Complex on Sunday 18th October as been cancelled.  We still hope to play the second Social Doubles event of the season on March 7th 2021 but this will spend on a significant relaxation of the current restrictions
