Weston Open Badminton Club has agreed a new sponsorship deal with Laurago’s.

With the North Somerset Badminton League season due to start on October 1, Weston Open Badminton Club has announced a new sponsorship agreement with Laurago’s.

Laurago’s is supporting the club in their rapid growth. Last season was a debut one for the club where players new to the sport found their feet in the local and competitive leagues.

With a fourth place finish this was a promising first year. Off the back of this success, the club are this year entering four teams, one of which will be named Laurago’s. Club chairman Paul Edwards said: “This is a very exciting move for the club and one which is unprecedented in local badminton. We are really pleased to have Laurago’s on board as it is an ideal partnership of two growing and innovative organisations.”

The club is currently receiving national recognition for its work to increase participation in the sport. Practice nights are every Tuesday and Thursday at venues across Weston.

Unlike all other clubs there is no membership fee, it is purely pay and play with no obligation or commitment. There is no minimum standard policy and the club welcomes all ages, abilities and weights.

If you would like to join, please email or contact us via our Facebook page WSM Open Badminton.
