Our History.

Whitebridge Badminton started on Thursday 2 February 2012 and has successfully completed its sixth year - most of the initial players were from two groups who played for many years on two courts at Reay Park Hall at the end of Ocean Street Dudley. They lost their venue at the end of 2010 when Lake Macquarie City Council decided the hall was unsafe and late in 2011 the groups received funding to start up at Whitebridge High School. As the hire fees were considerably more than at Dudley, LMCC underwrote the fees and some advertising to allow numbers to be built up and make the new arrangement self supporting. In 2015 fees were increased from $6 to $8 to continue to keep us self supporting but were still reasonable compared to other venues and sports. On 3 August 2017 we changed from 7.30 to 9.30 pm to an earlier start 7 to 9pm.On 30 November 2017 we had to raise our fees to $10 per night due to court hire fees being doubled. Ongoing existence will depend on sufficient attendance in 2018.

The High School venue provides us with more courts and is a more accessible site than the end of Ocean Street - so it could be seen as a better venue than we had before - excepting the occasional school usage and not being allowed to play in school holidys from March 2017.

New players are very welcome (male and female) - we play socially without any set competitions enjoying a time of healthy excercise with good company.
