Players of all abilities are welcome to play badminton, whether competitively or just for fun with our sessions running three times a week! We have three teams, Men’s, Women’s and Mixed, all of which compete against other colleges throughout the academic year. Teams are made up of 3 pairs who play each of the opposing 3 pairs, effectively best of 9 games. Our Men’s team completed a perfect season in 2016/17, winning all 9 games in division 1 and securing promotion to the premiership. The women’s team, on the other hand, had an average season, narrowly avoiding relegation from the Women’s Premiership. Our Mixed team had a phenomenal season finishing 3rd, and more importantly one place above the other college, in the Premiership. There will be plenty of opportunities to play for college throughout the year and with enough interest we are looking to expand and possibly have a B team.
