About us

Badminton is a social sport for everyone! Whether you are the next Lin Dan or a complete beginner, we welcome you to join us!

We have 4 competitive teams (3 men's and 1 women's ) which take part in inter-university leagues.

On the other hand, our social sessions are for light hearted play, friendly competition, and just having fun with friends in general! Our socials will also participate in some inter-university friendlies!

Competitive team matches against other universities happen on Wednesdays (which due to Covid has been delayed to start in Lent Term), whereas weekly training for competitive members take place on Saturdays from 5:00-7:00 pm at Somers Town Leisure Centre, which is just a short walk away from Euston!!.

Our social sessions happen on Saturdays from 2:30 pm - 4:30pm at Salmon Youth Centre. Rackets are provided, but due to covid we would recommend you bring your own, we are also introducing FEATHER SHUTTLES to our socials!! I am sure those who are returning members will find this to be very exciting new. Only sign-up needed is to have purchased a social membership!!

We also have social events throughout the year for both competitive and social members, such as AU events, team dinners, team outings to see the All England's, and of course, AU's all-favourite Carol. We look forward to seeing you all!

Notes from President:

Hi guys! I am Sammy and I joined badminton last year as a fresher, and I thoroughly enjoyed my first year being a member of the badminton family. Fighting for hard earned league promotions with the Men’s 2nd and 3rd team was an amazing experience and I improved my badminton skills immensely whilst having a lot of fun. I have met some of my best friends at LSE from badminton, it is safe to say our team is very friendly and knows how to have fun. I look forward to seeing you all next year!
