I have played social badminton since I was 5 years old. I play in four different clubs throughout the week with a range of players of different standards. I love the social aspects of a good game of badminton but also in improving and helping those around me improve. I also enjoy scuba diving and riding motorbikes in my spare time.
My name's Ruchi and I'm excited to be joining the badminton team as the official party planner :) I play once a week and I'm hoping to increase this to 2-3 times a week because it's that addictive! I really enjoy playing badminton because it's a great way to get in that exercise and meet new people. (Also, a study has found that playing badminton can increase your lifespan by approximately 6 years :p Disclaimer: Do your own research before taking my word for it). Outside of badminton, I enjoy salsa, live jazz, museums, travelling, art, self-development books and business. I look forward to organising lots of fun events for you and hope you'll join in the fun. It will be a great opportunity to get to know your fellow players on a personal level, make new connections and some great memories.
Session Leader & First Aid Champion
I’m in my 50s and I’ve been playing on and off since I was a teenager. I enjoy playing and more recently I’ve got a lot of satisfaction out of encouraging and showing the basics to some of the newer players. I too try to improve my game by learning from others. I’m also first aid trained and look after a couple of sessions per week.
I have always enjoyed playing badminton socially but never really with the intention of improving my game as I always gave more of my time to other sports. However, badminton has taken a significant importance in my life since my left leg was amputated in July 2019. From feeling like I had no purpose, badminton has given me a new lease of life! I am very fortunate that I was introduced to Play Badminton Club where I have been made to feel extremely welcome! I endeavour to play regularly every Sunday with the aim of improving my game and overall health. I highly recommend badminton to anyone and everyone as it genuinely is an all inclusive sport!
Sports has been an integral part of my life since childhood. My three main sports are football, swimming and of course badminton. I partook in all three both socialy and competitively. I am now proud to be a part of the Play Badminton Club admin team to help organise competitions. Outside of work and sports, I enjoy time with the family, reading, dining out and one of my biggest goals this year is to start playing the guitar again.
At a young age I was introduced to Badminton and have always enjoyed playing for fun and to keep active. I like the commitment of playing regularly with like-minded friendly players. With busy schedules of work and home, badminton allows 'ME' time and is a great workout to get your heart pumping.
