Best badminton courts to rent in Copenhagen

Gentofte Badminton Club (GBK), Gentofte (9 courts) perfect for pay and play badminton

Gentofte Badminton Klub is one of the oldest clubs in Denmark. The building is from 1936, which shows, but it has a certain charm. Book the exhibition court (court 5) for a unique experience. The badminton halls get really warm in the summer and tend to be quite cold in the winter months. Kudos to this club for keeping the pay-and-play price at a very reasonable level.

How to book a badminton court in Copenhagen and the rest of Denmark?

In Copenhagen, there are mainly three ways to book a badminton court on an hourly basis. These are:
WannaSport – booking engine for badminton and other sports
Book Byen (English: Book the City) – booking engine for publicly owned/managed badminton courts and other sports
– Directly on club websites

Please note that some courts in the greater Copenhagen area can only be booked through Book Byen.

Wanna Sport also serves the rest of Denmark, however, in provincial Denmark many clubs prefer to receive bookings directly on their website. Frustrating, but true.

What does it cost to rent a pay-and-play badminton court in Copenhagen?

Prices range from DKK 80 to DKK 200 per court per hour. Some facilities use differentiated or dynamic pricing, which means that booking a badminton court in the morning is cheaper than late afternoon, for example.

Remember these simple rules when you rent a badminton court

All of the pay and play badminton courts in Copenhagen (and the rest of Denmark) want you to follow these simple guidelines:

  • Don’t wear outdoor shoes on the court
  • Bring your own equipment: rackets, shuttlecocks (birdies), and shoes
  • Clean up after you are done playing
  • Respect the start and end times of your booking
  • Arrive early so that you have time to warm up, which will help you prevent injuries
