Blycotes Badminton Club have celebrated its 35th anniversary of playing at Bircotes Leisure Centre.

Its name is an amalgamation of Bircotes and nearby village Blyth, as many of the original members came from these areas.

Club secretary Michael Birch, from Tickhill, joined when he was a primary school teacher in Bircotes during the 1980s.

He said: “We’re a very friendly club and new players are welcome.”

“Our members range in age from their 20s to their 70s and our club evenings are relaxed and informal.”

They meet on Wednesdays from 8pm-10pm. For more information contact Michael Birch on (01302) 759852.
