"Discover the dynamics of badminton at BAD'87! We are a lively club that shares the passion for badminton, open to everyone aged 18 and above. With us, it is not about top performance, but the pure fun of the game, although sometimes the competitive spirit can take over!
BAD'87 is distinguished by an informal, friendly atmosphere, where mutual harmony and respect are key. We do not have strict rules about court layout or composition, but rather encourage spontaneity and flexibility.
Our experienced players are always ready to guide newcomers, teaching them the intricacies of technique and tactics. Whether you are a beginner looking to discover the sport, or an advanced player looking to hone your skills, BAD'87 welcomes you with open arms. Step into the world of badminton with us and experience the excitement of the game!" 

The feathers for shuttlecocks always come from the left wing of a goose. This causes the shuttle to rotate clockwise.
If feathers from the right wing or right and left wing are used, the shuttle will not turn properly.

The association consists of about 30 members.
Games are played on Friday evenings from 21.00 to 23.30 in sports hall 'De Sluis' on Kastanjestraat 2 in Nieuwegein.
