Welcome to Academy Badminton Club Bristol

Academy Badminton Club is a long established badminton club in South Bristol. We meet once a week and enter men’s, women’s and mixed teams into the Bristol and North Somerset leagues. We have regular club nights on a Wednesday and the atmosphere is very relaxed and sociable.

The standard at the club is relatively mixed; from reasonable club players to experienced league campaigners, so whatever your ability you won’t be on your own. The important thing is that you enjoy playing the game and can improve at your own pace. We have no age limit, our current membership ranges from 18 to 80 – just so long as you can make it onto the court under your own steam.

We play at The Park Sports Hall in Knowle every Wednesday from 7pm until 10pm. Games are generally played as doubles (unless numbers are low and courts are available for singles) with a pegs system allowing members to pick games and partners to suit.

Club membership is currently full but we regularly take on new members so please contact us if you’re interested in joining and would like some more information. Please don’t just turn up as we cannot guarantee you will be able to play.

In addition to our standard club nights we also organise regular coaching sessions during the summer (for members only) and hold occasional social events throughout the year.

If you’re looking for a badminton club Bristol has plenty on offer but you won’t find a friendlier one than Academy.

Due to the current Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic we have had to cancel club nights. With Badminton England's guidance slowly changing we are hoping to resume playing shortly so watch this space for updates. Unfortunately, until we are able to resume club nights with full numbers we are unable to consider new members to the club. We will keep this under review and as soon as it becomes possible, invite more people to try the club. Please don't just turn up as we will be unable to let you play.
