Welcome to Badminton Club Leiden!

We are a sociable club, open to all players of all abilities. Beginners and advanced players have opportunity to play three nights a week. 

On Mondays we play at the Vijf Meihal, Boshuizerlaan 3, Leiden. This evening has a recreational character, with a relaxed atmosphere. You will not have trouble finding someone to play with. There is the possibility to attend a training session for beginners and more advanced players.

On Wednesdays and Fridays we play at the Vlietland College, Apollolaan 262, Leiden. On Wednesdays during the league season (from September to April) there is training for experienced players who compete in the regional and national competition. Home matches of the league are played on Fridays.

If you are interested in playing with us, feel free to come along to one of these evenings!

You can wear any clothing that you will be comfortable playing in. Only shoes with black soles are not allowed. If you do not have a racket yet, you can borrow one from us.

About us

Badminton Club Leiden was founded 23 June 1972. It merged with BV Drive in 1995. We have around 80 members of all types: from adolescents to die-hard veterans, playing from a very relaxed style to playing on a really competitive level.

We cherish a friendly atmosphere in which everyone can feel at home. After playing, on Wednesdays and Fridays many of us end the evening at our own bar, with drinks and snacks and lots of talk about badminton (and other stuff).

During the season we organize several internal tournaments for fun and have our annual Club Championships. We end the season with our traditional Final Tournament, followed by a late-night barbeque.
