International Sports Clubs
By Jordan Snyder

TP 201907 BEIJING 06 2Beijing has a number of International Sports Clubs located across the city, a wide range of sports and activities to keep you fit and active, both indoor and outdoor. Most of these sports clubs welcome new members or visitors from across the world and now living in Beijing. With one or two exceptions, any level of ability is accepted, where participating and having fun are more important than winning. Here is a list of some of the international sports clubs in Beijing that you might want to pay a visit to.




The Elite Squash Academy


If you are looking for a new activity to fill some of your free time each weekend, then you might want to pop along to the Elite Squash Academy. They meet up every Sunday at 10am for three hours and welcome new members anytime. Squash is a sport that is slowly gaining in popularity in China. However, a lack of Squash courts makes the sports expansion a slow and somewhat difficult task. You can join the recreational classes, network with others and have fun learning a new hobby. Weekly meetings and games take place at the Hilton Beijing, 1 Dongfang Lu, Dongsanhuan Beilu, Chaoyang District, 鏈濋槼鍖轰笢涓夌幆鍖楄矾涓滄柟璺1鍙.

Beijing International Badminton Club


The Beijing International Badminton Club or BIBC is a non-profit organization that requires its members to contribute towards the expense of playing and enjoying badminton. The fee for each session is 80 yuan per person. This fee is purely to cover the cost of renting the number of badminton courts required and the use of shuttlecocks. Anyone wishing to attend is required to book their space at least 24 hours in advance. BIBC organizes four badminton sessions each week on Monday and Sunday evenings, in addition to Wednesday and Friday mornings.


The BIBC meets at the Xiaoweji Recreation Centre, which is located close to the 4th East Ring Road. This centre is not within walking distance of a subway station, so transport is available from Dawanglu Station, exit E on Line 14. Contact WeChat ID: 18301069591 for more details. You can also contact club organizers through:


There are about a dozen regular members that turn up for every session with others attending periodically. You will need to provide your own insurance against injury and play at your own risk. You are required to be in a good physical condition as badminton can be an intense demanding sport. Before each session we undertake an intense session of warm up exercises prior to beginning a game.
