Notification of price increase

LYC remains committed to competitive playing and membership fees. With regret and not due to a lack of trying, we have decided to increase the price of each badminton session by £1 starting from 1st July. Our RBKC subsidy was reduced by around 1/3 from its normal value. Also, we have seen increases in court fees and an increase in the price of shuttles. 

New fees below: KLC £7 up from £6 and QLC £8 up from £7. Also, players who get a discount will see price increased by £1 – as well as visitors.

We look forward to seeing you at the next session.

LYC Committee.

Black Lives Matter – LYC totally supports the objectives of the global Black Lives Matter campaign. Discrimination and violence against people of colour anywhere in the world is appalling, as is the disproportionate impact coronavirus has had on BAME communities. We remember that the gay rights movement was born at the Stonewall Inn, New York, in June 1969, when, led by Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera (black & latino trans people), gays rioted and fought back against the authorities who were persecuting them. As Marsha said “How many years has it taken people to realize that we are all brothers and sisters and human beings in the human race?” Sport has a great power to bring people together, and we will continue to strive to provide an inclusive supportive safe community at LYC where everyone can thrive.
