ABOUT OUR CLUB

UPDATE 19/08/2023:

If you wish to join our club then please complete this form. We will then be in touch within days.

Our club was formed in 2017 when a group of badminton-
playing friends wanted to meet new LGBTQ+ 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 150 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 LGBTQ+ badminton tournament in Europe, bringing together
over 250 LGBTQ+ 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 LGBTQ+ badminton groups and we will send a
squad to the 2024 EuroGames in Vienna, Switzerland and to the Hong Kong Gay Games in November 2023.

The club also plays in the Avon Badminton League.
