What lies beneath Badminton's new Sports Centre?

Burying our time-capsule.

Coinciding with the year of Badminton's 160th anniversary, members of our School community including Mrs Tear, our Chair of Governors and the Sports Scholars, gathered recently to bury a time capsule underneath our new Sports Centre.

The time capsule, which is submerged 29.5cm below the concrete floor of our new development, is made of a tough, durable, waterproof material and weighs 3.86kg. The lifespan of the time capsule is said to be 500 years, meaning that any items that were buried will still look exactly the same hundreds of years from now.

Placed in the time capsule are current Badminton School sports team photos, Badminton merchandise, a Sports Award 2017 programme, a netball signed by the 1st Team and a site map of the School amongst other items.

“We are incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to bury our very own time capsule to mark the construction of our new Sports Centre,” said Miss Gomersall, Director of Sport, “It’s exciting to think that in years from now, the time capsule could be discovered and the finders will gain an insight into life at Badminton as it is today”.
