Badminton is FUN, sociable, great exercise and inexpensive - why not give us a try? We play at Langton Green near Tunbridge Wells in Kent and play matches in the Tunbridge Wells Badminton League.
Our badminton court is in the Langton Green Village Hall which is conveniently located on the Kent/Sussex border and a short drive from Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Southborough, Crowborough and the many surrounding villages.
We welcome new players and are currently looking for a few new adult players, both male and female. Please do get in contact if you would like to try us out.

Langton Green Badminton Club is a very friendly club full of enthusiastic players. There is an approximately equal number of male and female players in the club.
Club practice sessions ("club nights") are played on Tuesday evenings from 8.00 pm until about 10.00 pm. These are always doubles games, usually mixed but occasionally mens or ladies doubles. We play with feather shuttles.
Home league matches are played on Friday evenings from 7.00 pm. We have 4 teams playing in Mens, Ladies, Mixed and Masters (over 50's) leagues.
There is of course no obligation to play in matches, if you only want to play social badminton that's absolutely fine.
Our playing season runs from early September until the end of May, we also sometimes run a Summer Club.
The club has a long history and was formed over 60 years ago. Our court is located within Langton Green Village Hall , this is a modern building which is next to the sports ground at Langton Green, the facilities are excellent with lots of car parking spaces just a few metres from the Hall, the hall has free WiFi.
At the moment we are only able to potentially accept new adult players, i.e. over 18's only.
During the COVID 19 period fees are only £25, to cover the club's Badminton England affiliation fee. After that annual fees are likely to return to last seasons £80, this is a club subscription which covers all club night play during the official season. This is less than £3 per club night!
If you would like to come along to try the club out we charge £5 for the evening, this is is refundable if you end up joining.
Match fees are £5 per match, this is only payable if you play in a team, in a match in the local league against another club.
