Badminton is Britain's most popular indoor racket sport based around a simple rule: keep the shuttle off the floor with your racket and hit it back over the net to your opponent, inside the court. It's an easy sport to start with the shuttlecock moving more slowly than most other racket sports but practice is rewarded with a fast, technical and tactical game.

Badminton is inclusive to all genders and levels of experience, and we welcome enquiries from those with a disability regarding the accessibility of Badminton. 

 We operate the sport within the guidance and guidelines laid out by the national governing body, England Badminton.
