ABOUT OUR CLUB
We had to close our club to new members but we have since added extra nights. Everyone on our waiting list has now been invited. If you wish to join our club then please complete this form. We will then be in touch.
Our club was formed in 2017 when a group of badminton-
playing friends wanted to meet new LGBT+ players who shared
a love for the game.
It didn’t take long until we expanded to
playing on more courts, and now we play five days a week.
We currently have 130 members. As well as the regular sessions, we
hold social events ranging from nights out, quizzes,
picnics, trips and the Christmas fancy-dress tournament,
formal dinner and award ceremony.
We host the annual Swifts Cup in Bristol which is the largest
annual LGBT+ badminton tournament in Europe, bringing together
over 200 LGBT+ players from the UK, Europe and Asia to compete
for medals in singles and doubles competitions across many
different ability levels.
We take part in mini-tournaments against other LGBT+ badminton groups and we will send a
squad to the 2023 EuroGames in Bern, Switzerland and to the Hong Kong Gay Games in November 2023.
The club also plays in the Avon Badminton League.
