Your guide to getting into badminton

Whether you’re looking to get fit, indulge your competitive side or just have a laugh and meet some new mates, badminton could be the sport for you.

As you leap, stretch and swing that racquet, you’ll be using a wide array of muscles, helping you keep trim and toned. Every smash, drop or serve is a mini-workout. It’s good for concentration too.

Try it out

For a cheap, relaxed and social game, give ‘No Strings Badminton’ a go. Anyone over 16 can play and there are 1,000 No Strings drop-in sessions each week across the UK.

Smashing it up

Mixing up big hitting badminton challenges with music playlists, SmashUp! sessions – for 13-16 year olds of all abilities – get sports halls rocking right across England. Turn up. Tune in. Hit hard.
