What we're about

A long-established and friendly club that has played for over 20 years at Finsbury Leisure Centre, Norman Street, EC1V 3PU. We meet on Wednesdays 8-10pm. We’re a sociable bunch, with members of all ages and both sexes, who take their badminton seriously. We play mens and mixed doubles. We are unfortunately, not a teaching club...so no beginners please.

We know that there are different layers of intermediate standard and we describe ourselves as largely mid to upper intermediate standard. We all have a few years of experience and can play fun competitive badminton. A reasonable standard of play is therefore expected. So not only should you have a solid skill set you must also have a good understanding of court positioning and game play. Occasionally we may encourage a less able player to find another club that best suits their level of play and experience. However if you haven't played for a while and a bit rusty, we can also be understanding.

Cost: £8 per two-hour session (includes feather shuttles) If you'd like to try us, RSVP Yes and seek us out on the left-hand side of the sports hall as you enter: just ask for Steve, Patrick or Chris.

Finsbury Leisure Centre

Central Badminton Club is a long-established, sociable group who enjoy badminton at an intermediate level. A reasonable standard of play is expected: guests should be regular players with a few years’ experience – no beginners, please. Join us for two hours of friendly, competitive badminton with like-minded enthusiasts. We use four courts, but even so we need to limit numbers so that everybody gets a fair number of games. We play from 8 to 10pm, with optional drinks and socialising in the pub afterwards. The cost of £8 per two-hour session includes feather shuttles. Our commitment is to ensure that you have an enjoyable evening. However, since we are a non- profit club with tight finances, we expect that once you RSVP you commit yourself to play. You may cancel up to 24 hours before the the session to avoid any attendance charge and to allow other people on the wait list to play. If you do not show without notice we reserve the right to charge a full non-attendance fee if you come again and persistent offenders may be blocked from our club. So please be thoughtful and let us know in good time if you cannot attend.
