Whereabouts in Leeds? (East, North, South, West?) I only really know about east leeds area and York.

Oh, York is quite far away from where I live, I think I live somewhere quite near to the centre of Leeds. I normally play at Round Hegian, do you have your post code, mine is lS6.

LS6 is pretty large but it's about a 20 minute walk to the shops from Hyde Park.
Does the local league still play with plastic shuttles?

I've been playing for Horsforth badminton club for the past year now and have found it to be a good standard (there's even a few county players amongst us). Strangely we are not actually based in Horsforth but play at Harewood instead on some rather nice courts at Gateways school. We have club night on mondays from 7:30 if you're interested.

I also live in Leeds LS6 and I want to find someone to play with. I have been playing badminton for 13 years in France (national competitions and championships). But the bad news is that I am a girl... No matter if you are a man or a woman, I am simply eager to find someone to play with in this area.

You are very welcome to come to our club night as a guest, we're always looking out for new ladies. We play on a tuesday night 7:30 till 9 at Gateways school, Hardwood, Leeds.
Hope you can join us.

Clubs in leeds, etc
I used to play in the Leeds league when they used plastics - this has now changed thankfully!
I am moving back to Leeds at the end of Jan 07 and would be happy to meet some new folk and play some badminton. I have a few friends in the area playing, so I am sure we could sort something out.
I will probbably go back to play for my old club - the Unviversity staff, who are based, unsurprisingly, at the unviversity sports centre (Tues & Fri nights). I think they have a few teams, the strongest being Div 1 mens.
You may find other people to play with at the uni, such as the sudent BUSA teams. From my experience of captaining one of these teams I can say that some players will only want to play with their regular team mates, but always worth asking.
Finally I know that Headingley have a Div 1 team. From what I hear the strongest players are mostly Malaysian engineering students, who don't always turn up to practice (Beckets Park Met sports centre). Apparently they can also often be found at the Uni sports centre mentioned above, playing amongst themselves. A friend of mine joins them regularly and they are quite friendly and open apparently - although you will need to be playing at a good league level.
Finally, I am fairly sure that you can find league results for Leeds on the web, which will fill you in on the various competitive clubs.
I hope to be living down in Kirstall soon, so give me a shout.
