What we're about
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 a decent level (sorry no beginners). Meet new friends and improve your badminton at the same time!
We are based in West London and play at Seymour Leisure Centre, Seymour Place in W1. so if you're in the area, why not try us out? We are very close to a number of major railway/uderground stations and on plenty of bus routes.
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:-
School Seymour Leisure Centre
We're easy to get to! (Please see map)
Why not 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 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.
