The Sydney Hotshots
This is a badminton group which is open to everyone but has a strong focus on being a welcoming, supportive & non-judgmental environment for LGBT players. In keeping with the all-inclusive theme, I want the group to be completely non-discriminatory when it comes to skill level and that folk with limited (or no) experience feel just as welcome as those who can play to a good level. Badminton is one of the few sports where it’s possible to have lots of fun, even when the standard of play is nothing to speak of!
At the moment, we play once per week for two hours at the Robyn Webster Sports Centre in Tempe and it costs $12. This covers 3 courts, shuttles and meetup fees. All you need to bring is your own racket.
The group also has a fairly active social scene and there are regular organised drinks, dinners and other events.
Please join if you think this is a group which you’d want to be part of. We coordinate using Meetup, also have an active facebook group, so look us and join!
