Marchon Badminton Club Fixture List - 2017/2018

We have 2 mixed teams, 2 men's teams and 2 ladies teams who enter into the West Cumbria Badminton League each season. We also enter 2 mixed teams into the Leagues Knockout Handicap Competition called the Peeney Cup and we enter a Men's team into the North Cumbria Badminton League. We are a very laid back club, who has a big social side and a lot of our members like to get together for nights out, events, parties etc.

We were awarded the CLUB OF THE YEAR 2015 award from BADMINTON England in March 2015 which is a massive national achievement for the club to receive. This shows that the dedication and hard work for each member has eventually paid off.

Everyone is always made to feel welcome.

Marchon Badminton Club was formed in the Marchon Club, in Whitehaven. It was formerly a works social club belonging to Marchon Chemical Plant but is now independently run as a community hall. We moved through to West Lakes Academy in Egremont for a season, until we were able to move back to Whitehaven into St Benedicts School where we spent 5 seasons before moving to St Bees for the 2016/2017 season and we are continuing to play there this season. The Badminton Club has developed considerably over the last 10 -15years. The average age of the club has dropped significantly and we have a lot of dedicated players moving the club on into the future.

This has been shown in our more recent accomplishments, where the club won 5 out of 8 trophies at the 2016/2017 season. We have won the Men's 1 Division 6 times in the last 8 years. Our first mixed team won the Peeney Cup title last season and have also managed to retain the Ladies first league 5 times in the last 5 years, with our 2nd Ladies winning the 2nd Division fo the first time also..

We aim to grow on this success in future seasons and we hope you will be there to join us.

Anyone who is interesting in playing, whether it is for the first time, or to join a local club as an experienced player, please get in touch by emailing or contacting us through our Facebook page at
