The Melbourne Smashers is a social badminton club for the LGBTQI Community and Allies in Melbourne.


The Melbourne Smashers Badminton Club acknowledges the people of the eastern Kulin Nation as the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we play and conduct our club.

We recognise their continuing connection to the land, its waters, and culture, and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
