    I live in central London, am 36, female and starting to play badminton again after many years of couch-potato-dom. Would like to play socially, not competitively, to get into the run of things again, but would prefer not to play with total beginners! Any ideas of where I can go to find people to play with on a recreational basis for fun/exercise? (I prefer singles rather than doubles but am not too fussy).

    regards,
    JR

    Hi, I'm in central London. I have sometimes played in the Marylebone area, but am willing to travel to west or east London. Uxbridge, however, is a little bit far away!

    A couple of places in West and central London which are quite convenient and charge fairly reasonable fees are the Seymour Leisure Centre in Marylebone and the Kensington Leisure Centre in Ladbroke Grove.

    Been a bit busy the past couple of days so can't really determine my playing schedule just yet, sorry!
