LYC is a the most socially engaging and diverse badminton club for LGBT+ players and their friends in London. Open to players of all levels and abilities.  Our weekly sessions are on Sundays from 3pm to 6pm at the Kensington Leisure Centre, Silchester Road, London, W10 6EX, United Kingdom. No need to book, just turn up and play as a visitor or become member. We look forward to seeing you.

All our play is with feathered shuttlecocks preferred by professional players (better for the shoulder, more accurate smashes, easier to control for the tumbling net shot, and for the very satisfying sound when it makes contact with the racquet: it is the sweet spot of badminton’s play).

All LYC members have access to free coaching included within their membership, to learn to play better: we have four qualified coaches certified by Badminton England, on hand just about every Sunday. 

LYC has its own league team and enters 3 competitions per year in the Middlesex and Hammersmith leagues. There are generally 12 away matches and 12 home matches, mostly played on Sunday, for all members to support.

LYC organises two club tournaments per year: an fun tournament in the Summer and a “best-in-club” competition in November – for all members to enjoy.

In addition, LYC organises a multitude of social activities throughout the year: from a New Year party and an annual birthday bash to ping-pong or bowling nights, pub crawls and participation in London Pride and Out-For-Sport activities.
