The Badminton Club is a mixed club with 3 Men's Teams and 1 Women's Team regularly competing in BUCS leagues and tournaments. Teams are selected through trials at the start of the year, and the level of play is competitive. Regular social sport sessions are also run for less competitive and developing players.
We want to welcome everyone of any ability to join and find the right place for them to play, develop and meet new friendly faces!
Come and play badminton in a fun and relaxed setting. No need to bring anyone with you, as our Student Sport Activator will introduce you to participants and rotate you on and off court. Mostly you will be playing doubles games (singles when it’s quieter and if you want to). If you don’t know the rules or want to learn how to improve your performance, instruction can be provided upon request. All equipment is provided, but feel free to bring your own if you prefer. Playing abilities varies from complete beginners to club players, where possible you will be grouped with players similar to your own ability and sessions can be adapted to suit a variety of needs.
Sessions are £2.50 or free if you have a SHU-Active or Team Hallam membership. Just turn up on the day, or you can book in advance with our online booking system, or at SHU-Active reception. See our social sport timetable to find a session. For any questions email us.
Each team consists of at least 6 players but we need more than this to accommodate for sickness or unavailability during matches. These teams have varying levels and compete in different leagues in BUCS. To register your interest please attend sports fair in September to attend trials. Teams will be selected before November to allow us to register players for the league.
