Crest Badminton Club first came into existance in September 2005.

It was formed to cater for people who want to play badminton regularly but are not strong enough to join one of the many current league clubs in the area. This included those who :
   - wanted a bit more than playing occasionally with family and friends,
   - had done coaching courses and wanted to continue playing,
   - had played badminton a 'long time ago' and wanted to restart,
   - were 'kicked out' of the junior clubs because they were too old !

The club has been running very successfully ever since, and has even inspired the setting up of a similar club, Casuals, which is running very successfully on Sunday afternoons.
