Find your play
Badminton courts are available to hire across Greater Manchester and we’re here to help you find your perfect court. Badminton is a great sport to play all year round as the courts are always indoors, meaning you can keep exercising even in the cold winter months! So grab your racquet and shuttlecock and book a badminton court!
Most courts can be hired on a pay as you play basis but we recommend making a block booking to ensure you can play your game on a weekly basis without any hassle. We have compiled a list of some of the best badminton courts in Manchester for you to try.
Based in Salford, Clarendon Leisure Centre has a state of the art sports hall with badminton courts available to hire.

Free parking is also available for all customers. The nearest station is Salford Crescent and the venue is not far from MediaCity making it ideal for after work games.
