About us

Badminton is a social sport for everyone! Whether you are Lee Chong Wei 2.0 or a complete beginner, we welcome you to join us!

We have 5 competitive teams (3 men's, 1 women's and 1 mixed) which take part in inter-university leagues.

On the other hand, our social club participates in friendly inter-university matches as well as weekly social badminton sessions purely for fun.

Competitive team matches against other universities happen on Wednesdays, whereas weekly training for competitive members take place on Sundays from 6:30-9:30 pm (Training times/location still TBC)

All our trainings and home matches take place at Sobell Leisure Centre.

Our social sessions happen on Saturdays from 2:30 pm - 4:30pm at Salmon Youth Centre(Time/Location TBC). All equipment is provided. 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!
