We are delighted to confirm that the Langside Badminton League will be back in action this season after a long 19-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Seven clubs across South Lanarkshire, East Renfrewshire and the southside of Glasgow will take part in two divisions in the mixed league, and one division in the women’s league:
|Mixed League 1st Division||Mixed League 2nd Division||Women’s League|
The mixed league starts on Tuesday 19 October 2021 and concludes on Thursday 10 March 2022, while the women’s league starts on Thursday 21 October 2021 and concludes on Thursday 17 March 2022. You can view all upcoming matches by visiting our events page: www.langsidebadminton.co.uk/events
At the end of the season, our popular annual tournament — Thornlee — will return for the first time since 2019, taking place across April and May 2022.
Unfortunately, due to a lack of hall availability, Greenbank Badminton Club will not be taking part in the league this year, but their players will be invited to join other clubs to take part in competitive badminton and our Thornlee tournament. Greenbank continue to host social club nights at Giffnock South Parish Church, and are looking for new players to join them for a hit. If you are interested, please get in touch.
We continue to look for more competitive players, particularly more women, to join our clubs to take part in both mixed and women’s doubles matches. You can have a look at our clubs by visiting www.langsidebadminton.co.uk/clubs. If you would like to play for a club in the Langside Badminton League this season, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you in touch with your nearest club.
