Our Club

Unicorn Badminton Club is a small, friendly club of league and club players, students, junior players and coaches.

We really welcome visitors so please do come and try us out - the club is a great night out whether you are an experienced player, someone who played a long while back and is now interested in returning to badminton, or someone wanting to progress your play on from casual to a bit more competitive. We particularly welcome younger players (juniors and students) to help you enjoy and develop your game, and to gain an introduction to a lifetime of healthy, enjoyable sport.
