Welcome to the SEMSA Badminton Club.

We are an open club for all individuals from all different backgrounds and ethnicity, and we bring together people from all over the world and share the lovely game of badminton! Whether you live here, or are visiting Scotland for afar, and enjoy playing badminton, then why not bring your skills to our club and mix with the likes of people from, Scotland, England, Ireland, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, China, Spain, Greece, Barbados, Nigeria or even as far as Australia!
Our Club has been around since 1989 at different venues and has welcomed almost every nationality possible!
Our club runs every Sunday evening at 5pm to 7pm and we have 4 dedicated courts located at the National Badminton Academy at Scotstoun Leisure Centre.
We have members who have played the game for over 10 years to 10 months so our club is fully versatile with beginners to advanced tournament players. Simply turn up at the badminton building and ask to be directed to the courts booked by SEMSA or speak to a SEMSA coach.

The club is organised by SEMSA Trustees, Rocky Bagha & Gregory Thomas.
