What we're about

** Our weekly sessions may change due to the current restrictions. Please always check the details on Meetup events **

Established in 2009 using Facebook as the platform, we have players from all around the world. We use good quality feather shuttlecocks. We limit the number of players for each session to avoid overcrowding. We are an inclusive club, so we welcome players of all levels. Our aim is to provide a platform for everyone, who shares the passion for badminton. So everyone can now enjoy badminton...

• If you are a fresh player or beginner, we can teach and coach you;

• If you've played for a few years already but still don't feel confident, we can help you improve and get to the next level;

• If you are a highly skilful, advanced player, we can certainly challenge you in competitive games.
