Badminton Club

If you enjoy meeting new people, learning or improving a new skills as well as keeping your fitness up then the badminton club is the place for you!

Our badminton club is open to players of all abilities: whether you’ve never held a racket before, haven't played for a while or have played competitively there is a session available to everyone!

The Success

The club has four mixed competitive teams which have had great success in previous years, including the 1st team winning the BUCS Trophy.

All four teams play in the Scottish BUCS leagues each year, with three of the four competing in the top two divisions as of this year. These teams allow us to play highly competitive games against other universities and also participate in the Scottish University Championships and BUCS Individual Championships in Aberdeen and Sheffield, respectively.

We recently introduced a 4th mixed team to compete in BUCS which will allow more members to play competitively. We have high expectations for our teams this coming year and we look forward to continuing to find other ways to allow as many players as possible to play in competitive games.


Training sessions are open to competitive and recreational players alike, with all standards of play catered for in a friendly, sociable environment. There is coaching available to all members and UofG Sport also offer drop-in sessions where gym members can participate in organised matches. We also have coaches available at our recreational session to offer advice as well as professional coaching at our competitive teams training sessions.


The club also has a vibrant social scene with events arranged throughout the year. Along with regular nights out, you can look forward to events such as the subcrawl, Christmas Dinner, and joint social events with other clubs.


If you're interested in joining and would like to ask any questions or receive more information, please contact us – or visit us at the Freshers Fayre at the beginning of the academic year.
