The Club was originally set up for employees of Ransomes Sims & Jefferies Ltd with additional access to non employees and has existed for more than 40 years.
The Company withdrew from the Club in the mid nineties and it has continued to operate with a volunteer committee supported by its members.
Owing to only having one court available the number of members has to be limited but there is always room for one or two more. Badminton is played on Monday evenings pretty much throughout the year. It also has a team playing in Ipswich & District Badminton League and has been promoted to Division 4 for the coming season and that means around six Mondays during the year will be devoted to league games. Other Monday evenings it is social badminton which is enjoyed by all members.
The Club is blessed with sociable and friendly people and on Club nights there is lots of banter and new members have always been made welcome.
