Hello Everyone, 

I hope you are all staying safe and well, 

Just a little update from the committee to say that we are still working behind the scenes to get everything ready and set up for a return to club. We are having regular committee meetings & are in contact with governing bodies & facility managers. 

We have an ever changing situation on our hands so we unfortunately aren’t able to give you all a date for start back but we can assure you that we will have LDBC back up and running as soon as we safely can. 

With regards to our Bathgate section - as it is held within a school facility we have no idea when we will be able to return to the Academy but once our Musselburgh section is back up and running we will be inviting our Bathgate section to join us at Musselburgh in the meantime. 

We will be in touch with all soon & I hope we have positive news, 

Stay safe, 

Emma - Vice Chair

Edinburgh University Badminton Club Raise funds for LDBC


"Hi everyone, hope you're all doing well and staying safe and healthy! Just wanted to let you all know that a few of us with the Edinburgh University Badminton Club organised a pub quiz and raffle to raise some money to donate to LDBC and managed to raise £201 thanks to all the people that came along and were happy to donate and help out! I hope that once LDBC starts back up again that this can help out somehow, and look forward to seeing you all there! Until then, take care of yourselves and stay healthy!"

Hello Everyone at LDBC,

We as a committee just wanted to check in with everyone, to say hello and wish you well through these difficult & strange times. We hope everyone is staying safe and doing okay.

We understand that the situation is incredibly hard, we have absolutely no idea when club will be able to return, we are continuing to follow government guidelines and will take the necessary positive steps to allow club to return to business once this is feasible.

The club committee continue to work in the background & we hope to have new exciting ventures ready for when LDBC returns.

If anyone needs anything or has any queries regarding the current situation, then please don’t hesitate to get in contact. We are here to help in any way which we can.

Take care,

See you all soon,

LDBC Committee

LDBC update on Coronavirus (Covid - 19)

Following to the ongoing increase in Coronavirus cases in Scotland, LDBC has taken the decision to suspend all LDBC sessions with effect from 17th March until further notice.

I hope you can understand our decision; the safety of our members is our upmost priority and we feel this is a sensible decision.

LDBC will continue to monitor the situation and will communicate any changes as soon as they occur.

Stay safe everyone!
