Brecon Badminton Club
The club was formed in 1980 a group of players who played socially and most worked for W H Smiths in Swindon area .With some new members joining the club in 1982 and with us securing the use of Lawn Junior School in Brecon Close we decided to enter the local leagues and had to name the club as we played at Brecon close this was the chosen name of the club.
We entered the league with 1 mixed team and was very surprised to win this league in our first season.the club has gone through quite a few changes in numbers of club members and venues. We now have 2 Mixed Teams, 2 Men's Teams, 1 Ladies Teams and 1 Veterans Team. We have been located at Dorcan Sports Centre since 2004 and the club has been growing since the move.
In 2008 Steve and Mary decided to start Dorcan Junior Badminton Club this is the feeder club for our senior club and this has proved to be successful with 60 junior members,we have had quite a few players that have made the grade to be able to play for the senior club.The Junior Club is one of the largest and most successful clubs in Wiltshire.
