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).

Badminton teams

The Badminton Club has four teams competing in the BUCS league. The ladies first team retained their place in the Northern Premiership in 2019.


We split training into three group coaching sessions. These sessions occur on Tuesday evenings, Friday mornings and Sunday afternoons. Social sessions are open to casual players once a week.

University badminton continues to go from strength to strength.

UKCC Badminton Level 3 coach Martin Fagan supervises our intensive training programme. A Northumberland badminton legend with numerous titles to his name, Martin has represented the county for over 25 years.

He has also represented England at masters international level and is still a revered doubles player in the local leagues.

As a club member, Martin’s expertise and guidance will benefit you.


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.
