What we're about

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.

Session fees: £8 per person for a 2-hour session. £16 per person for a group coaching/training session.

Important: We operate on a reimbursement policy. Any no-show or late cancellation (less than 24 hours before the session) will be required to reimburse the session fee (no exception). If you sign up on the waiting list, please check your booking status regularly as you will be automatically given a place when a space becomes available (without your knowledge), which you will be liable for. Please always update your booking status (even on waiting list) if you can no longer attend so that your space can be released to someone else.

The club also offers racket restringing service and sales of rackets and shuttlecocks. Please contact Brian Ng for more information.

There is a social side to our club, with regular social gathering and fun activities organised for members. We also have our own badminton tournament every year. Go to http://www.londonbadminton.weebly.com or search us on Facebook.

Please stretch and warm up properly before and after our session to prevent injury. We are a social group, not insured and are not liable for any injury or loss that you may suffer as a result of your participation at any of our sessions (games sessions and training/coaching sessions).

There is a standard Meetup setting where your profile may show ‘unpaid’ status even though you have paid. If so, please ignore this standard setting. The main point is as long as you have paid your session fee, that’s fine.

We may occasionally take photographs and/or videos during our sessions or activities for promotional or training purposes. By signing up to our Meetup, you hereby give permission for us to take your photographs, videos or audios for these purposes.

We want every member to have a good experience every time and continue playing with the club. If you have any feedback about LCWBC (positives and negatives) or any suggestion, please complete a short survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Z8WNZG6
