Badminton Island Gardens [B.I.G.] Pages

Welcome to the Badminton Island Gardens - the friendly group for badminton players all of whom have played a while and are at a good level, sorry no beginners. . We play at Seymour Leisure Centre, Seymour Place W1. The emphasis is on improvement, fair play, and FUN! We normally play on Saturdays from 12pm-2pm and there are 2 courts available. We play with feather shuttles (plastics by request) and the cost is £6.00 per session. The venue is:-

Seymour Leisure Centre
Seymour Place

By Car: Please note that the roads on the left of the A40 (all roads on the same side as Lisson Grove, Cosway Street etc..) are free parking but the ones on the Seymour Leisure Centre are paid parking. If you park on the free side it is only a 5-10 minute walk.

Nearby buses number:-

Why not become a Badminton Islander and save yourself £1.00 a session by paying for 10 sessions at once? You only need pay £50 for 10 sessions, saving yourself £10.

If you're coming along to play badminton and haven't played since the rule changes of 2006, PLEASE take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with the rules, it will be worth it! Here is a simple guide:-


Youtube is an invaluable reference for learning every aspect of the game, there are many coaching tutorials and I would recommend the series by Zhao Jianhua and Xiao Jie or Lee Jae Bok the former GB coach.
