    Default Looking for people to play with in north/east london

    Hi,
    I'd like to meet someone/some people who'd be interested in hiring out a court for a couple of hours maybe 2 times per week.. I'm not an advanced player by any means, but not a complete beginner either.. Can play good games, but my footwork is not textbook if you know what i mean..
    I LOVE playing and want to do so to keep/get fit and for the sheer enjoyment of the game.
    I've been to open clubs, but sometimes find that the players are a little competitive and take it all very seriously.. I'm not saying that in a negative way, just i'd like to play with people who are on the same page as me..
    Possible venues would be Sobell in Holloway, or any others you might know?
    Thanks,
    Ome.

    Hi Kaymo,Mr.Ome,
    Just to help if still looking to play in east london to get back into Badminton,then you can try Leyton Youth on Tuseday which is a club that has players of all ages and level come to keep fit or to have fun and competitive games.Then there is Leyton sixform college on Friday to a open session to play with your friends or other people for double, you bring your own shuttlecocks and rackets.

    Hi,

    If you play up to a reasonable standard, you might want to join Sylvan Badminton Club at Bancroft’s School Sports Centre every Tuesday 7:30pm to 9:30pm from 2 August 2011 (inclusive).

    The club operates on a pay as you go basis at £6 per session (£5 for ladies). Tournament grade goose feather shuttlecocks will be used for every session.

    Please note that as we are an informal social group and we are not covered by any insurance.

    How to get to Bancroft’s School Sports Centre

    Address:
    Bancroft’s School Sports Centre
    Woodford Green
    Essex IG8 0RF

    By Car:
    Bancroft school is off the A406 North Circular and on the A104 in Woodford Green. There is ample free parking on site.

    By Public Transport:
    Bus 179 stops outside the school along Whitehall Lane and can be taken from either Chingford Rail Station or South Woodford Underground Station.

    Please drop me a private message if you are interested.
