Badminton

Date: To be determined.
Details: The badminton session has yet to be set because the Thursday evening session clashes with Welcome Dinner. Thus, this sports session will likely be moved to a later day in the week. I will send out another email once the session has been confirmed.

A gentle reminder, each sports session costs GBP 5 and a season pass costs GBP 35.

If you are in any way still unclear about what this means please contact me and I will explain in greater detail.

Also note that to represent MSOC in any competitions you will need to buy the season pass due to subsidy reasons.
