DROP what you're doing, CLEAR your anxieties, and NET yourself a SMASHing time!

Welcome to Badminton Island Gardens - the friendly group for badminton players of intermediate level. Meet new friends and improve your badminton at the same time!

We are based in the Docklands area of London, so if you're in east or south London, why not try us out? Island Gardens DLR station is 10 minutes from Canary Wharf and 20 minutes from Bank.

If you 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.

The pages for this group have useful information to improve your game.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
