A badminton club celebrating its 25th anniversary this year is appealing for new members.

Pocklington Badminton Club, founded in 1991, meets every Monday from 8pm-10pm at East Riding Leisure Francis Scaife in Pocklington.

New members, who need to be over 16-years-old, should be able to play to a reasonable standard.

The club’s chairman Derek Burt said: “Like many sports clubs these days numbers are diminishing and we could do with a boost in membership. It’s an excellent way to keep fit.” Subs are £120 per annum, Students half price. Call Derek on 07919 200374 or Justine Scrowston on 07973 483218 for more information.
