ShuttleBusters Gay Badminton Leicester

Sports Coach in Leicester, United Kingdom

Work out with me

Leicester ShuttleBusters / Rainbow Racquets is a newly-established social racquet sports club for the LGBT / gay community and friends in Leicester. Our focus is primarily on a regular badminton group, and we have players of all levels of ability - from complete beginners to experienced players.

We are keen to widen our network of Leicester locals (and visitors!) keen to play some sport, socialise, meet some new people and have a bit of fun. New players are always welcome to come along and play at our regular badminton sessions and we're also keen to encourage others to meet up for tennis and squash.

We meet weekly and confirmation of time and venue is posted each week on the Rainbow Racquets Leicester Facebook page (

WHEN: Wednesdays from 6:00pm-8:00pm.

WHERE: Aylestone Leisure Centre, 2 Knighton Lane East, Leicester LE2 6L


Playing is free for Leicester City Council Leisure Centre members and £5.00 for non-members (payable directly to the Leisure Centre on arrival).

The focus of these evenings is social. Players of all standards are most welcome.

We have a few loan racquets for new players, so you can't use that as an excuse not to join in!

We also try to head out for a cheap and cheerful bite to eat after playing.
