Hi! Welcome to the Sydney Hotshots, an LBGTQ+ (Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Transgender, Queer and Other) social badminton group.
We're a group open to everyone but has a strong focus on being a welcoming, supportive & non-judgmental environment for LGBTQ+ players.
In keeping with the all-inclusive theme, this group is non-discriminatory when it comes to skill level and that those with limited (or no) experience feel just as welcome as those who can play to a high level. Badminton is one of the few sports where it’s possible to have lots of fun, even when the standard of play is nothing to speak of!
We currently play once a week for two hours in the city. Attendance costs $10 which (only just) covers 3.5 courts (all will be explained!), decent shuttles and meetup fees. All you need to bring is your own racket!
The 2017 season will see the attendance increased from 20 to 26 people now we have additional courts and the waiting list for sessions will open a month before the session giving more opportunity for new people to attend.
We have a fairly active social scene and there are regular organised drinks, dinners and other events.
Please join if you think this is a group which you’d want to be part of.
