    3. Feathers
    4. No invite needed..just show up and ask for Mandic (MD)
    5. Some players do play in a league so does that count as competitive..its usually a social atmosphere there.
    6. No coaching
    7. No drills

    Were you there on Wed nights? Dunno if i remember seeing you there before. There is another club on a Sat that is run by Linda near Shadwell with Beginners-Advanced. Some form of coaching takes place and drills but depends on how busy it is...if you are interested let me know.

    Default Bacon's College

    Hi there,

    Just thought I'd let you know that you can't just turn up and play. Booking is required contrary to the comments made here. I managed to book a court once after much effort and with 2 weeks advance notice. But this was the only time as the rest were block booked for weeks until the new year.

    So, you'll need to do this in advance. The receptionist wasn't particularly helpful either as she wasn't able to take a booking for me in person. Instead, I was given a phone number to call which was always busy.

    So, does anyone else know of a place where I can play without too much effort? Badminton seems to be a popular sport in London.

    Thx

    Hi Pyshuttler, I am playing at Bacons on Thursdays, (strictly members/Invites only).
    As far as I know, from other players talking about Tuesday/Wednesday, its still opens to all. Wednesday's level is quite high. cost 5 (2hrs?) I think. I can find out more this Thursday.

    i think its starts at 7.30pm, (maybe 8pm) 4 courts, lighting is not too bad, they have (a hint of blue-ish) flourescent tubes, the courts are varnish wooden floor. its a college gym so the floor can be dusty at times.
    the number of players can varies, all depends who shows up as its not a member club.

    Did you turn up last night? I was there too.

    The players are friendly and the organiser's name is olly (not sure of the spelling). The session starts from 8pm and ends at 10pm.

    Let's do a bit of update

    Been playing on Wednesdays since May. Like it, there are mainly good players, intermediate to advanced. You might find it a bit boring if you are really a beginner. time 7:30-10:00pm, but most people turn up around 8:00, and sometimes finishes around 10:30.

    Never been to Tuesday's, think they open to all too, same time as wednesday's I suppose...

    Don't know about Thursday's, according to some other people you must be invited and the level is not high.

    @aaronuk

    Tuesday - beginners, time?
    Wednesday - intermediate, time?
    Thursday - member only
    Friday - member only

    Tuesdays...starts at 7:00 - finishes between 10 / 10:30. does get busy though. beginners? hahaha where did you hear that?
    both tuesday and wednesday are ex-league players and on tuesday (recently) less and less beginners.

    Thursday - is a member only club and i guess invite would be best.
    Friday is a member club but also an open to all club, there is a wide range of standards from beginners to club standard.

    but for anyone reading this - if you want to play just turn up and see for yourself.

    Hello everyone,

    I am pretty new to the city and to the game(maybe played like 20-25 times),but I always enjoyed it alot. As I am living in Poplar this club seems to be the perfect one for me. Can I simply come over on a Tuesday/Wednesday night?
    I also guess that Id have to bring a racket myself(dont have one yet)?

    Kind Regards
