Who we are?

LYC is a socially engaging and diverse badminton club for LGBT+ players in London. We are open to players of all levels and abilities. The Club (Long Yang Club Badminton London) is a registered community amateur sports club (CASC) with the HMRC UK. The Club is also affiliated with Badminton England and is run by a Committee elected annually by the members.


LYC members have access to free coaching sessions throughout the year and join our badminton sessions at a discounted fee. All our games are played with feathered shuttlecocks which are preferred by more competitive players.

In addition to regular badminton sessions, we organise club tournaments during the year. Other than playing badminton as a sport that our members love, there are also many social events run by the Club for the members and their friends to socialise and have fun. Oh, our members like to go to a pub after a session for some food and a few pints… well we earn it, why not!
