A Tasty Thai on a Friday

We have a table booked for 8pm at the new Thai restaurant in Orwell Place (the former Town House premises next to the Dhaka and opposite the Cox Lane Car Park) on Friday 6 October.  Liquid appetisers will be enjoyed in the Spread Eagle from about 6.30pm where you can enjoy some real ale by the Grain Brewery. Here's the website links to both of these venues:   Spread Eagle Ipswich

Please e-mail me if you would like to come along to the meal at Bangkok Heightz, if it's just a drink in the pub - we look forward to seeing you there!

Corinthians Christmas Party

This will be held at The Galley, Market Place, Woodbridge on Saturday 2 December in the Cellar which is reserved especially for us from 7.00pm!  The Cellar seats 26 and we can't stretch the walls so places will go to the first 26 who pay their deposits to us.  This is one of the top restaurants in the area and is personally supervised by its owner, Ugur Vata, who has been running The Galley, originally in Ipswich and now Woodbridge, since 1994.

The Christmas menu will be published on The Galley's website in the next couple of weeks and costs confirmed at 2 courses for £25 and 3 courses at £30 per person.  There will be a choice of at least 4 dishes for each course and include vegetarian option and traditional Christmas turkey.  Take a look at the mouth-watering menus currently on offer on their website

Please let me know via e-mail Sue McKinley if you are interested in coming along as soon as you can and once the menus are published, I will happily take your deposits of £15 per person.

League teams
Home league matches are played on a Tuesday night at various times between 7:00pm until 10:30pm at Ipswich School, with up to three home matches being played per night. We have 12 teams in the Ipswich and District League, including 3 division one teams, making us the largest league club in Ipswich.

We try to keep our membership cost as low as possible so that cost is not a bar to people particapting in the club. One of the ways we do this is to make a part of our annual membership a voluntary donation. By doing this we can claim back Gift Aid from this amount for all normal rate taxpayers. This arrangement allows us to keep costs to a minimum for all members.

The membership cost for the 2017-2018 season is a maximum of £70.00 and is broken down as follows: -

£23.00Club membershipThis is the clubs fixed membership fee
£35.00Voluntary donationThis is a donation we ask you to make towards the running of the club
£12.00BAE membershipBAE membership provides you with insurance whilst you are playing badminton

Prospective new members may attend on a "pay as you go basis" for up to five sessions before committing themselves to membership. Each "pay as you go" session is charged for at £6.00 and all such payments are deducted from the annual membership cost when a person goes on to become a member.

You can pay your club fees using online banking. The details are:

Account name: Corinthians Badminton Club
Account number: 61021370
Sort code: 40-25-31

If you pay by this method then please send an email to Adam so that I can look out for your payment


The club Annual General Meeting for the 2016-2017 season will be held at 7:00pm on Thursday 25th May at Ipswich School. We have booked the room in the sports centre foyer for the meeting.
