Badminton School

Superb sports facilities available for hire

Badminton School has an extensive range of top-class sports facilities available for regular or one-off bookings. Sports clubs, teams, coaches and trainers from Bristol and beyond now call the School their home.

We have sports facilities for:

  • Badminton
  • Basketball 
  • Cardio and resistance training
  • Climbing
  • Cricket (net-based practice)
  • Fencing
  • Futsal
  • Hockey
  • Netball
  • Pilates
  • Spin cycling
  • Swimming
  • Tennis
  • Volleyball
  • Yoga

While some people hire a specific sports facility such as our netball courts, climbing wall or hockey pitch, others require a package that combines several of Badminton School’s amenities. For example, Bristol Penguins Olympic Swimming Club use both our pool and our Sports Centre’s Cardio Room for their training sessions.

We make use of the excellent 25m swimming pool and new Sports Centre to provide training for our athletes. The service provided is professional and forward thinking.

More details on each of our sports facilities are shown below. Hire can also include facilities beyond the sporting realm. Outside of Term time, the availability of our Boarding Houses makes Badminton School an ideal venue for residential sports camps.

All-Weather Astro Pitch

Our full-size all-weather pitch is a truly terrific amenity for hockey clubs. New goalmouths were installed along the touchline during the Summer of 2020. These enable the pitch to be divided into three zones to allow smaller groups or younger teams a more suitable space in which to play.

The pitch can also be utilised for athletics coaching and has lane markings for 60-metre sprint training.

Tennis and Netball Courts

The School has four multi-purpose outdoor courts for hire by clubs and private coaches. Two of our courts were refurbished in the spring of 2021, so are of a fantastic standard. The courts can be set up for either netball or tennis, and associated equipment can be provided.

25-Metre Indoor Swimming Pool

Our four-lane 25-metre indoor pool is especially popular with swimming clubs and providers of swimming lessons. 

It is perfect for everything from drilling Olympic hopefuls and training lifeguards through to aqua-aerobic sessions or canoeing lessons.

Whether you would like exclusive use of whole pool for a team or club, or you need just one lane for coaching individuals or smaller groups, we can go with the flow and arrange a hire to suit your needs.

At the moment our Swimming Pool is fully booked, but you are welcome to join our waiting list.
