There are plenty of opportunities to play badminton during your time at University. We welcome all players, from beginner standard right the way to international. Whether you just want to play socially or compete in the leagues, there are plenty of opportunities to play at the level that suits you.
Make sure to join our Facebook group for updates through the year: University of Liverpool Badminton Club 2020/21
Badminton has 5 teams, 3 men’s and 2 women’s. All our teams represent the university in weekly BUCS fixtures against other universities. Last season our Women’s 1sts and Mens 3rds won their leagues after a very successful season.
We are looking to continue with our success and secure a top place finish for all our teams and as always, we are looking for new team players to continue our story. So come along to trials (dates available at Fresher’s Fair and FB group) to see if you can gain a place on one of our teams!
As well as opportunities in the BUCS leagues, we also enter the individual BUCS championships. This gives you a chance to succeed as an individual player as well as part of a team, and is also a great social event!
All team members are expected to attend coaching sessions, which are separate to normal club nights. Details of the times will be provided once you have secured your place on the team following team trials.
Our club is open to players of all abilities. If you’re not interested in playing for our teams, then you are welcome to come along and join in at our campus sessions. These sessions are great for meeting new people and having fun whilst exercising.
We supply rackets, nets and shuttles for use at campus sessions if you don’t have your own. So, if you just want to give it a try for the first time, all you need to bring is yourself in a pair of trainers! For those who are looking for a bit of competition as a non-team player, we plan on running some tournaments throughout the year!
For dates and times for the sessions make sure to join our Facebook group or come along to the Fresher’s Fair.
As well as social games, we have the AU sports team night out on Wednesday’s. With different fancy dress themes and a chance to meet all the members of the club, whether you drink or not, they are always a fun night. These are dotted throughout the year, but we’ll give you plenty of time to get your costume ready.
We also have other social events throughout the year, including white t-shirt night, Christmas meal and summer meal, planned by our social secs – Lily and Chris!
All social events will be posted on the Facebook group: University of Liverpool Badminton Club 2020/21
