About the Club
Alpha Badminton Club was founded in 1932 by members of Lisburn Cricket Club as a way to keep n touch during the winter months. Over the years they played in a number of one court halls around Lisburn. In the 1960’s they joined with Hilden Tennis Club to fund raise in order to built joint facilities for – Hilden in the summer and Alpha in the winter. The two clubs had a number of members in common. The new facility, named the Lisburn Racquets Club, opened in November 1970 with new changing and social rooms, three badminton courts and two squash courts run by a new joint member, Lisburn Racquets Squash Club. Subsequent developments have brought in 12 badminton courts, two more squash courts, improved social facilities and a dome covering 2 tennis courts in the winter.
