Kom speel saam pluimbal!

Come join us for badminton!

Badminton ("pluimbal" in Afrikaans) is played by millions worldwide and is the fastest racket sport in the world. Traditionally a gentile outdoor sport for a sunny day, modern badminton is a fast-paced and dramatic game involving quick reflexes, careful accuracy, and powerful jump smashes.

Stellenbosch has a number of teams in top divisions of the local Boland league, but also a number of players who simply like to play socially.

If any of this sounds interesting, you should come try it out!

Pluimbal ("badminton" in Engels) word gespeel deur miljoene wêreldwyd en is die vinnigste racket sport in die wêreld. Tradisioneel 'n nie-Joodse buite sport vir 'n sonnige dag, moderne pluimbal is 'n vinnige en dramatiese spel wat vinnige reflekse, versigtig akkuraatheid, en 'n kragtige sprong breek.

Stellenbosch het 'n aantal spanne in die top-afdelings van die plaaslike Boland-liga, maar ook 'n aantal spelers wat net wil sosiaal speel.

Indien enige van hierdie klink interessant, moet jy kom dit uit te probeer!
