University of Exeter Badminton Club

The University of Exeter’s Badminton Club offers an opportunity to play with members of all abilities, from beginners to squad members. Tri-weekly sessions provide a fun and relaxed space to improve your badminton skills and meet new people. For those of you looking for a little more competition, Intramural badminton on Sunday evenings is a brilliant opportunity to play in a league with your own team and play others at a similar level to you. Tournaments throughout the year also provide an opportunity to play others in the club in a fun competitive atmosphere. Regular socials events throughout the term are great opportunities to meet people and take time out from studies. Members may trial for a position on the squad, who play BUCS matches on Wednesday afternoons. Badminton is perfect for those of you looking for a fun and competitive sport, whether you’ve played for years or never picked up a racket!
