The Ladybird Badminton League Inc. has been in existence since 1973. It has grown from seven founding teams to over forty-five teams (over 300 ladies) in 1996. The original idea was for housewives to "make a day of it" to play friendly competition, with light refreshments, and meet other women from diverse backgrounds.
We cater for all standards of players, from the casual player at social games to the more persistent (dedicated?) at pennant level. Anyone can play badminton! -- and we are proud to have members ranging from 18 to our 'other end of the scale' youngsters in their 60's and 70's. Pennant format now consists of five a side playing both home and away games, mainly on Mondays.
Clubs involved also play socially on other days and welcome visitors, beginners, social or pennant players. You can actually play badminton in Perth on any day or night - it's going on somewhere!
The Western Australian Ladybird League supports the State Junior (Under 17s) Team, by directly giving the 10 members a cheque for $150 each towards their cost for National competitions interstate.
