What we're about

Our aim is to promote a healthy community, where everybody can interact with and freely enjoy badminton. Creating a social group, where people don't have to worry about their skill level, gender, social background, or anything that defines them, is what we strive for. Instead of an intense group focused on competition and achievements, we like to think of ourselves as a social group, where people can meet one another.

Want to make friends? With over 2000 members, our group is the perfect way to meet new people, while engaging in enjoyable activities. In fact, around 400 people join each month, with 90 people participating on Tuesdays and Saturdays!

This is more than just a work-out. This is an open community that focusses on communicating with each other, not a battle to determine who's the best player. We hope you join us, and we look forward to seeing you!

We would appreciate if you use a picture of yourself in your profile. So that we can personally welcome you when you come to our events!
