Welcome to our Club Website


Walton & Kirton Badminton Club is a friendly club of appoximately 25 members, both young and old and has existed for more than 50 years. Club nights and home matches are played at Walton Church Hall, near Felixstowe in Suffolk. It is considered by many to be the perfect badminton hall, with good lighting, a high ceiling and clear markings on a wooden parquet floor. There is only one court, and this does tend to create the need for competitive badminton to be played.
