Welcome to Falcons! Please read more about the club below before you sign up to our sessions :) 


Back in 2008, a few of us got together to play mid-week badminton. The idea was to get more practice on top of weekend sessions elsewhere, focusing on Wednesday as a nice way to roll over the mid-week hill top. Over a decade(-ish) later, the casual get-together has blossomed into what we are today.

Today we are a diverse group of friendly, intermediate adult players (18+) who meet up weekly for doubles games. Our players enjoy both the competitive and social aspects of the game, and occasionally meet up for food and drinks on weekends. 

Our Wednesday badminton sessions are based at the Sobell Leisure Centre in Finsbury Park. We use feather shuttles, and currently reserve three courts. The cost for the evening is £7 (or £6 with a one time discount fee - speak to the event host for more information). We always welcome new members to come and try our friendly club. As long as you are low-intermediate standard or above and are keen to improve, you will fit right in! 

If you are a complete beginner, we recommend you attend some coaching sessions or a beginner's meet-up group first. If you need some suggestions, drop the organisers a message and we'll see if we can help.



Finally, please make sure you read and understand the following notes and guidance about Falcons before attending our meetup. Please ask the organisers if you require more information:

• Falcons is not an official membership badminton group, but a casual group organised by friends and volunteers. The organisers do not receive personal financial gains from running this group.

By attending our meetups you are acknowledging that you are responsible for your own safety and welfare, as well as your property which you bring to the meet-up events.

• You are expected to play safely to reduce the risk of injury to yourself and others. You may be requested to leave if you are playing in a way which is risky to yourself or others. To minimise risks, please make sure you are dressed appropriately (e.g., wear appropriate indoor court shoes).

• Falcons is an inclusive club, and we welcome intermediate players from all backgrounds. We expect our players to treat each other with respect, and we do not accept any threatening or aggressive behaviour.

• There are further rules listed on each meetup event. Please make sure you read and understand the terms for each event before you sign-up.
