Do you have a talent and passion for badminton?

Newcastle’s Badminton Club is always on the lookout for promising players. We offer intensive training and many opportunities to compete, both within and outside of British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS).

The Badminton Club has five teams competing in the BUCS league, three men and two women. The ladies first team are in the Northern Premiership. Our UKCC Level 3 professional coaches make training fun but very competitive to help bring the best out of all the players.

The Badminton Club competes in at least two competitions or events outside of BUCS every year. This gives students different competitive opportunities.  You also have the chance to join local teams in the Northumbria League, which are often located in the Tyneside Badminton Centre close by and also the chance to be selected for the senior county teams.

Badminton is part of the University’s Racquet Sports Programme with the aim to be one of the country’s top centres of excellence for racquet sports.
