Badminton Club

 

Cardiff University Badminton is a dynamic and innovative club that has both a strong competitive team along with a fun social club. Within the club, there is plenty to do for all members whether they are elite players or complete beginners. Badminton is a sport that is extremely popular worldwide and in the run-up to Commonwealth and Olympic games this popularity will only increase.

We are one of the largest clubs in Cardiff and our weekly Social Sunday sessions provide the opportunity for all members to come along and play badminton in a relaxed and fun environment. During the year we run various fun events as well as friendly tournaments, all of which gives everyone the opportunity to meet other people in the club. 

Training

As we are a large club there is a lot of competition for squad places so trials are held every year during Fresher's. If successful training and coaching is on a regular basis which means that we consistently produce some of the top teams in the Southern divisions. The best players in the squad also get to compete in the National BUCS championships held in Sheffield. 

For the 2021-2022 season, we have five teams playing in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues, 2 women's teams, and 3 men's teams. Our men's and women's first teams also compete every year in the Welsh Varsity against Swansea. This is a great day of sport not only for the players but also for all members of the club, as supporters. 

Social

Our social club runs weekly, on a Sunday between 12-4, we can provide rackets and shuttles. We also have regular socials ranging from standard student nights to club meals and games evenings. Given how popular and diverse we are as a club it's no surprise that our socials are a great way to meet new people and get involved with one of the best sports clubs at Cardiff!
