Badminton is one of the biggest and most active clubs on campus. We are for players of all abilities and have a social, as well as competitive focus. This year we are hoping for an exciting and rewarding sports experience with more members and lots of fresh faces. We are planning lots of events, both charity and club based, and some more of our infamous socials! In September we will hopefully have 2 teams competing in BUCS, which is the nationwide University league. The teams will consist of a Men’s and Women’s team. As a performance sport we are provided with extra training times with a great coach, nutrition workshops and a strength and conditioning coach to get us at our best.
Team Training times - All training is held in the Sir Stanley Matthews Sports Centre on campus.
Don’t worry if you don’t make the team or just want to play for fun as we have Social Sessions to offer for on £25 for the year. This includes 2 Badminton sessions a week, as well as the chance to play in the local mixed league to get more game experience. If you would also like to improve your game, we have our once a month coaching sessions for only £5.
Social Session times - All Social Sessions are held in the Sir Stanley Matthews Sports Centre on campus.
