About

Welcome to the Swansea University Badminton!

We cater for all abilities whether you're a beginner, social player or looking to compete at University level there is something for everyone!

This year we offer 5 teams including 3 Men's teams and 2 Women's teams, playing in BUCS league matches every Wednesday (starting in the 2nd term) and a men's and women's fixture on Varsity day against Cardiff.

Training for Squad Members:

  • Two sessions per week for squad members
    • SINGLETON - Mondays, 5:30-6:55pm
    • BAY - Fridays, 7:00-8:20pm
  • Trials to attempt to make the Badminton Squad will be held at Singleton Campus on the 19th of October - Trials at Bay Campus will take place at a date following the latest lockdown measures proposed by the Welsh Governmen
  • Due to restrictions on the number of players allowed within a sports hall due to government regulations, a sign up sheet will be set up on our Facebook page to book your slot in the session. The limit on players will hopefully relax as the year progresses

 

Social players:

  • There is a more Social club night for all badminton society members to play no matter whether you are a complete beginner, or you play regularly in your local club. Club nights are a great way to get to know people and play badminton in a relaxed environment! There are options to play games casually, have a little bit of guidance on how to play, and a few fun tournaments throughout the year to bring out your competitive edge. The end of the year provides the thrill of the infamous Inter-Campus Match, pitting Team Singleton against Team Bay
  • Two sessions per week for social players:
    • SINGLETON - Mondays, 7:00-8:25pm
    • BAY - Fridays, 8:25-9:45pm
  • Due to restrictions on the number of players allowed within a sports hall due to government regulations, a sign up sheet will be set up on our Facebook page to book your slot in the session. The limit on players will hopefully relax as the year progresses.

 

Membership Cost:

  • Membership for the year is a one off price of £10
  • In addition, every session that you attend is priced at £3 on the door.

 

Socials

  • Every other week we have socials which are friendly and open to all members be it social or squad with different themes.  In addition, there will be charity events, club meals and other more sober activites, and an annual tour which we encourage members to go on.
  • First social is on the 7th of October - a white T-shirt social which will be held virtually on Zoom. follow the link below to join the event, wear a plan white T-shirt with your name, snapchat and Instagram ID, and a fun fact about you written on your shirt, and bring some drinks and your pens with you!
