About Calpe Badminton Club
Calpe Badminton Club currently plays every Monday and Thursday morning between 8am and 11am (In July and August only on Saturdays) at the Pabellón Deportivo Domingo Crespo, between the soccer fields and the Pista Azul, Avda País Valencia, Calpe (the road where the Rastro used to be on Wednesdays). You can just turn up, or contact us first at email@example.com.
We play with feather shuttles to the latest IBF rules, and have up to four courts available at each session.
We are a friendly club, welcoming men and women of all ages and nationalities. The only requirement is that you can play badminton at a reasonable standard! If you are a regular badminton player looking to join a local club then get in touch. It doesn\’t matter whether you live here permanently or just visit for holidays – we always like to see new faces. We initially ask you to play as a visitor (€4 per session) for up to 4 sessions and then your membership is approved by the committee. Currently, the membership fee is €20 then €1 per session.
The club is also integrated into the local community and makes regular donations to local charities.
However, badminton is what brings us all together and we take it fairly seriously too. We are affiliated to the Valencian Badminton Federation.
Whilst the club is based in Calpe, our members come from Javea to Albir (and all points in between). The main langage of the club is English, but we also have Spanish, German, Dutch and Belgian members. The common language is badminton!
