Why is UWBC the best?
Our badminton club prides it self for being the most engaging sports club on campus and it really is a place for EVERYONE!
The club is first and foremost just a friendly community of people who want to play badminton, regardless of past experience. Never picked up a raquet? No problem, all the more reason to join the club and learn to play badminton for fun and fitness.
For those talented players out there, the club is also a place to train and improve under dedicated coaches. These elite players then represent the club and university, competing against other universities. For the confident players, we also host internal community tournaments and cups for anyone to compete in.
Another major part of our club is the social opportunities provided. Since our club is one of the largest sports clubs on campus, we host many social events for drinkers and non-drinkers alike, allowing everyone to socialise with ease within our huge diverse community. Not to mention the opportunity to go on tour abroad with the club!
Welcome to the University of Warwick Badminton Club!
The University of Warwick Badminton Club is one of the largest sports clubs on campus. We are a diverse community of Warwick students who have been brought together by our shared passion for badminton!
Our badminton team is recognised by Warwick Sport as a high performance team, which has given us greater coverage and support on campus. We five teams, three men’s and two women’s, competing in the BUCS Leagues. Each team competes in their respective BUCS Regional Cup and we also send a collection of men and women to the BUCS Badminton Individual Championships every year.
A word from our President
From the start of the year the badminton club is always open, welcoming and inviting to any and all ranges of players. We encourage competition in a relaxed and social atmosphere. People join the badminton club from all backgrounds, some have never held a racket before and others have played internationally but with more than 340 members there is always someone of a similar level to enjoy games with.
Please feel free to come along and join us at all our social events and bring your friends with you, the badminton club is always open to new players!
Coupled with this, our team has consistently scored highly in our BUCS visits throughout the years; as we tirelessly work to progress all our players from the development squad all the way up to our 1st Teams.
Of course all this talk is about our performance side of badminton. At Warwick we don’t just care about BUCS, we have a thriving community of club players who regularly attend club sessions as often as 6 times a week. Regular tournaments run termly across 9 hours and encompass more than a hundred entries.
We as a club host a wide range of social events. Ran by our dedicated duo of determined divas Rachael Ralph and Greg Roffey, socials range from regular POP and Skool Dayz circling to sober-socials like ice skating and trampolining. We cater to all lifestyle choices by ensuring all our socials are relaxed and inclusive.
Every year we host a badminton tour, last year saw us journeying to Budapest for a few days of badminton themed fun. This year our members will be lucky enough to have both a normal tour and a secret mini tour, shhhh ;).
Alongside all our other great socials we have our annual trip to the All England Badminton Finals Day. Always a favourite of the club, we regularly have attendances of 30 or higher so make sure to get your name in early! If you have any questions just message us through your preferred medium and we will get right back to you.
