For those who are serious about having fun with badminton, this is the place for you!

The London STEP UP Badminton is a coaching-based badminton meet up for from complete beginners to match players. According to the coach’s evaluations and as you attend sessions regularly, members are given a "title" to match their achievements. Categorisations may shift according to the standard of all members.

We train on Monday evenings at Sobell Leisure Centre in Islington, North London.

"Titles" go like this… (Comments are not really according to the categorisations! Please refer to the " Titles and what to aim for your next step up" page for the real descriptions.)

  • [No title]........We’re all blank canvas at first.
  • Sun.........All possibilities are there.
  • Mercury........Small but big step!
  • Venus........Learned some beautiful shots?
  • Mars........Getting all hot!
  • Jupiter........Fumed up with tactics!
  • Saturn........Got some wicked shots?
  • Uranus ........Chilled by cool moves!
  • Neptune........Getting hard to be shot at!

Each session consists of 1-hour coaching and 1-hour games. There are usually 2 sessions running at the same time, divided according to members' "titles". "Titles" are chosen by the coach’s evaluations on individual’s achievements. Please look at our " About" page before you join.

We're running this meetup with our goodwill. This is not a business. Your help and kind words are much appreciated!
