Luton is lucky to have some of the finest grassroots sports facilities to enjoy a game of badminton. The sport is always played indoors which means it’s possible to book and get involved in a game all through the year. British success at recent Olympics in London and then Rio has put the sport in the spotlight and highlighted the benefits of playing. Badminton can be played in various formats and the main ones are singles, doubles and mixed matches. Most games are either an hour or 40 minutes to give players a real workout as an alternative to visiting the gym. Many of the grassroots badminton venues will run ladders or tournaments for those players wishing to test themselves in a competitive environment.
