Docklands - February 10th - Play Starts at 16:20
No Badminton Docklands - March 31st
While our regular home at Kensington Leisure Centre is being rebuilt, LYC London Badminton Club will have different arrangements for winter and summer:
Winter (October - March)
Club sessions are split over two locations:
Euston is for members only. There is currently no need to reserve your place, just turn up and play.
Docklands is open for members and for guests. Guests do not need to register in advance. A 'colour' system will be in operation. See below.
Euston is £4 per session. Docklands is £5 per session but you will also need to pay a 50p facility admission charge to the centre. Guests playing at Docklands will pay £8.
Any member wanting to play at both locations on the same day will be charged £8.
Summer (April - September)
During the summer months, there will be no need to pre-book Euston and it is open to members and to guests. A 'colour' system will be in operation. See below.
During the summer, play at Euston will be £6 for members and £8 for guests.
Colour / Grading System
Players are graded according to ability. Grades are Green, Red, Yellow, Blue and Black - roughly equivalent to the widely recognised grades of C-, C+, B-, B+ and A. A peg board system is in place for fair selection of matches. Whoever is selecting the matches can choose to play within their own grade, or one grade above or below (e.g. a red player can choose to play all red games, or red/green games or red/yellow games). A 'promotion' system is in place for those players actively improving their game and who wish to try for a higher colour.
