League teams

We believe in providing opportunities for our members to play competitively against other local players, and develop their game.

To represent Southsea Badminton Club in the local league, you’ll first need to be an SBC member first (though being a member does not guarantee you a place in a team).

There is also a match fee of £5 per match you play in. Together these help cover your league affiliation fees, and court and shuttle costs.
