This year is a better time than ever to become a part of one of the biggest and best clubs in Edinburgh! Having grown massively in recent years, we are tremendously proud to say we were awarded the Lillywhite Shield for Club of the Year 2021-22! We offer badminton for all abilities. Whether you’re a complete beginner and fancy some friendly games and coaching, or a regular player and want to try out for one of our many competitive teams, our club will be thrilled to have you.
For those just looking to come along and have a laugh, we have many socials! We hold weekly gatherings at Greenmantle alongside bigger socials throughout the year, including families night, bowling, pub quizzes or flat crawls! The families social will take place at the start of the year and will give you a great chance to meet all of the brilliant members of the club. Further details to be followed closer to each social event on our Facebook and Instagram.
On a more competitive note, our six mixed teams compete in the Scottish leagues with two teams in the top two divisions. We also have a great number of teams competing in the local Edinburgh league. There are, therefore, plenty of opportunities to compete for the university! If you fancy trying your luck for one of the 6 teams, head down to retrials which will be held on Saturday 14th of January 2023 @ Pleasance CSE.
