Oakgate Badminton Club
Oakgate Badminton Club are a league and social badminton club, playing in the Whitefield & District Badminton League. We have been running for over 30 years and we play our home matches at Castlebrook High School in Unsworth on Friday evenings. We promote a friendly and fun environment in which badminton is played at both a social and competitive level with a range of abilities. Our members also cover a massive age range - whether a teen or a pensioner we have members of all ages!
Oakgate is currently the largest club in the Whitefield league, boasting around 45 members with 4 teams in the league (one team in division 1, one in division 2 and two teams in division 3). We also have a team in the Bolton League playing in the first division,.plus we also have two teams playing in the Rossendale League, one in the first division and one in the second division, which play at Radcliffe Riverside Leisure Centre. We are one of the most fortunate clubs in the Whitefield league in that there are four courts available in the hall and we are open throughout the summer so there is rarely a Friday night when you would not be able to play.
During the summer months (May to August) and a small number of nights throughout the rest of the year, the club is open to guests and non members for a small fee. We are also an active social club and host plenty of days and nights out throughout the year.
