IMS league

Anyone of any ability can join the IMS league, as long as you are a member of the badminton club and also have a sports centre membership.

Once you are registered you will be allocated a league and a list of matches to play. The fixtures are flexible and are organised between you and your opponent - book a court in your own time or make use of the social club sessions to play your matches.

It is a great opportunity to play in friendly matches whilst meeting new people.

The club will also be organising several one-day tournaments throughout the year.

If you are interested in playing in the league or have any questions regarding IMS badminton please contact the IMS badminton officer Kiran Patel (
