Reading University Badminton Club is a friendly and sociable club and welcomes every one of all abilities to join. It provides members with the opportunity to play badminton in a relaxed environment, as well as the chance to meet lots of new people. The social sessions of the club take place on a Saturday where members are able to play a number of games with a mix of abilities. It is here that friendly tournaments, competitions and games will take place throughout the year.
In addition to the social club we also have competitive university teams within the club. If you have previous club experience we want to hear from you! There are two men’s teams and one ladies team who take part in the BUCS league throughout the university year. They also take part in a national competition at Sheffield, against the rest of the country's universities. There are also opportunities to play in tournaments abroad, such as the Rose Beiaard Cup in Belgium.
Team members have two training sessions during the week (Mondays and Tuesdays), and matches take place on a Wednesday afternoon either home or away. The club holds great socials throughout the year for both team and social club members, giving everyone the opportunity to get to know each other and have a bit of fun! The club gives members the opportunity to become as involved within the club as they wish, and loves to hear what its members think and ways they would like the club improved! We are one of the cheapest sports clubs at Reading and would love for you to join us this year!
