We offer regular matches, team training as well as social sessions in the Sports Hall, throughout the year. If you want to experience a fast, tactical and fun sport, come and join us. Come play badminton with us!
Competitive Games: Team Brunel
We had a very successful year as a club last season! Our men's 1st team won both their league and cup, gaining promotion into division 1A for 2019-20. Our ladies team won their cup, beating the winners of division two. Sadly due to clashing matches, they narrowly missed out on gaining promotion into division 2 but the gold medals around their necks were totally worth it!
We have also had a good run within the BUCS Individual championships in February, with one ladies pair narrowly missing out on going through to main draw. Most entries, did however, make it through to round 2 at least!
This year we are hoping to continue that success into the new season, with a lot more hard work and traininng (as well as fun and games!)
Our current teams are as follow:
- Men's 1st - South Eastern Tier 1
- Men's 2nd - South Eastern Tier 4
- Ladies’ - South Eastern Tier 3
- Mixed - Intermediate
As part of being in Team Brunel Badminton - this year, we are offering 2 training sessions:
Coaching by Ollie Thompson (U19 National Champion 2016)
First session back will be 6th October 2019.
Playing for Fun: The Social Sessions
Alongside the competitive teams, Brunel Badminton also offers social sessions a week, where people of all abilities can play and have fun with no strings attached. This is the place to ask any team member present for tips and advice on how to improve your game. If you don’t have your own racquet, there's no need to worry! We provide free use of racquets and plastic shuttles!
