Worle Campus League, which was founded in March 2017, have announced a change to their league format once they return to the court when the Covid restrictions ease.

League games will now consist of six sets, with each set being the best of three games. 

Players will be awarded three points in the table for a victory or one point if it ends three sets all.

The league is usually plays matches  every Thursday night, although games are currently suspended due to the pandemic, when players have the chance to showcase and improve their skills whilst socialising with other badminton enthusiasts.

There are plans to expand the league and the committee are urging new members to join when the players pick up their rackets once again.
