Becoming a member of LYC allows you to take full advantage of all that our club offers. As a member you will be able to sign up for free coaching sessions with our qualified trainers and you’ll be kept informed of upcoming events including our popular tournaments. Visitors are encouraged to try the club a couple of times before becoming a member. When you are ready, you can sign-up for membership below.
We now require all of our members to be part of Badminton England, which supports our club, gives members several benefits, and allows us to enter a team in the league. If you are not already a member of Badminton England (BE) through LYC or another club, we will automatically sign you up when you join LYC. If you are already a BE member then please find your BE number and enter it in the form when you join below.
The costs for joining LYC are as follows. The cost structure is largely dictated by BE membership rules. Depending on the time of the year you are joining, you may get better value by waiting a short while to join the club. If you have any questions about this, please ask the committee.

Membership of LYC requires you to be a member of Badminton England (BE). If you are currently a BE member (eg. through another club), you do not have to pay the annual BE membership fee again, simply enter your BE club and number below (if known) or write “TBC” (if not known). If you are NOT currently a BE member, or your BE membership is through LYC, we will register/renew your annual BE membership.
LYC is a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) and consequently anything you pay to the club is considered to be a donation. You can boost your donation by 25% if you are a UK taxpayer and you agree to Gift Aid your donation. Gift Aid is reclaimed by Long Yang Club Badminton London (CASC #CH10653) from the tax you pay for the current tax year. If you agree to Gift Aid by choosing “YES” below, you are agreeing to Gift Aid this donation and any donations you make in the future or have made in the past 4 years to Long Yang Club Badminton London. You also understand that if you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in the tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
We play badminton every Sunday from 3pm to 6pm at Kensington Leisure Centre, Silchester Road, London, W10 6EX.
As a visitor the cost is £8 per session, which you pay in cash at the registration desk.
Once you are an LYC member, the cost for the Sunday session is £6, or £5 for RBKC residents, students, or over 50s. You pay this in cash at the registration desk.
