Что мы из себя представляем

For those who are serious about improving your badminton, this is the place for you!

The London STEP UP Badminton is a coaching-based badminton meet up for from complete beginners to match players. According to the coach’s evaluations and as you attend sessions regularly, members are given a "title" to match their achievements. Categorisations may shift according to the standard of all members.

From 2019, we're going to run 4 week courses and 2hr coached sessions.

"Titles" go like this… (Comments are not really according to the categorisations! Please refer to the " Titles and what to aim for your next step up (http://www.meetup.com/London-STEPUP-Badminton/pages/Titles_and_what_you_aim_at_for_your_next_step_up/)" page for the real descriptions.)

[No title]........We’re all blank canvas at first.

Sun.........All possibilities are there.

Mercury........Small but big step!

Venus........Learned some beautiful shots?

Mars........Getting all hot!

Jupiter........Fumed up with tactics!

Saturn........Got some wicked shots?

Uranus ........Chilled by cool moves!

Neptune........Getting hard to be shot at!

Each session consists of 1-hour coaching and 1-hour games. There are usually 2 sessions running at the same time, divided according to members' "titles". "Titles" are chosen by the coach’s evaluations on individual’s achievements. Please look at our " About (http://www.meetup.com/London-STEPUP-Badminton/about/)" page before you join.

We're running this meetup with our goodwill. This is not a business. Your help and kind words are much appreciated!

*We're sorry but this meetup is for 18 years old and up. If you are a junior player, we know places you can go for coaching. Send the organiser an e-mail for more information.

This group is concentrating on doubles games.

=How our sessions work=

Please come to our Games only sessions before signing up for any courses & 2hr training sessions if you are not a beginner and have never come to our sessions.

Once you have a "title" (or no tile), you can join in the corresponding sessions.

Course 1: 4 week course for new members/beginners and members with no title.

Course 2: 4 week course for members with title "Sun".

Course 3: 2hr coached session for members with title "Mercury"

Course 4: 2hr coached session for members with titles "Venus" upwards

Course 5: 2hr league players coached session - invitation only

2hr Games only sessions for non-beginners are used to pre-grade new members for the future coached sessions

They are all to be pre-paid through PayPal. Please allow yourself to get used to the system. (I'm learning, too, so please be patient. ;))

Instead of weekly sessions, we will be holding sessions in a smaller batch, limiting the attendee to a smaller number and focusing on attendees needs. At the same time, members' commitment and enthusiasm is expected.

Our venue will be changing, too. Some of the courses are up already. Do sign up early to avoid disappointment.

You can see the future courses and sessions in a calendar here:

All other information such as fees and penalty rules are written in the description of each session page. Please read carefully before signing up. Everyone needs to RSVP each time and get a spot to join in any sessions.

We look forward to seeing you and let's improve our badminton together!
