Our History

It is unclear as to when our club was actually formed but the sport has been played in Bishop’s Waltham since the mid 1930’s.  Records held by the club show that Badminton was alive in 1934/35 when the membership of the club numbered 15 and annual subs were 10 shillings and 6 old pence. The club played at the Old Drill Hall until war broke out when the club temporarily stopped until the war was over. The club then moved to the British Legion Hall in Swanmore before moving back to Bishops Waltham a few years later and eventually moving back into the Old Drill Hall.
