What do I need to bring to play at Leicester Badminton Club?

When coming along to Leicester Badminton Club, all you need to bring is yourself, your badminton kit, fluids to re-hydrate and your badminton racquet.

The cost is £3.50 per person to play at each session. There are discounts available for couples and families.

There are changing rooms and shower facilities at the college if you wish to use them before or after.

There is a cafe on site and this is open from 3-7pm and serves food and snacks along with cold and hot drinks.

Important: Before you are able to play at the club, we do ask you have the correct indoor non-slip, non-marking, badminton shoe which fits comfortably and perfectly. The shoe should support your foot whilst moving around the court and be able to take the pressures and exertions badminton entails when playing.
The reason for this is to ensure you have the best playing experience and for your personal safety.

If you are unsure where to get these from we recommend Withers Sports in Leicester city centre who are very helpful and knowledgeable. They are located on 6 Carts Lane, LE1 5FL. Let them know we sent you.
