About us

The Royal Holloway Badminton Club is made up of numerous committed, fun and outgoing individuals who share a love for badminton and a desire to thrive in it. RHUL Badminton contains players of all skill levels who are eager to play badminton. Whether it's intense competition you're after or a little harmless shuttle action, RHUL Badminton offers something for everyone. The community at RHUL Badminton is welcoming and close-knit, and everyone there has an open mind.

All teams compete in BUCS on Wednesdays and mixed teams compete in LUSL on Sunday 

We hold a variety of Team Trainings and Active Sessions where people can play with other players people of similar skill levels and create lifelong friendships. You'll have the chance to not only advance in badminton but also meet loads of like-minded and talented individuals with whom you can have a laugh with!

Membership

Royal Holloway Badminton offers two types of membership:

  • If you pass through the team trials to make it into the competitive squads, then the Team Membership is for you! This will give you the opportunity to represent your University against others all over the country (travel included) in all our competitive matches throughout the season. You'll get an opportunity to go on tour as well as compete in Varsity. Finally, you will be able to attend all training sessions and receive the benefits from professional coaching.
  • If the intense competitive lifestyle isn't for you, then the opportunity for more casual play can be obtained through purchasing the Active Sessions Membership. This grants you the opportunity to attend all Badminton Active Sessions every week to meet new people, make new friends and play less intense badminton. Active Sessions have a much more relaxed vibe and playing with friends is extremely fun!

Events and Activities

Over the course of the year we host a wide number of events including:

  • Initiation and welcome drinks
  • Club Trips
  • Skill swap
  • Team Training every Friday and Saturday
  • BUCS matches on Wednesday 
  • Christmas Dinner
  • Regular club socials including pub trips, food nights and SU nights 
  • Opportunity to compete in national competition
  • Halloween themed and club night dress up socials
  • End of year sports award
  • Joint end of year party (subject to change)

Active sessions should be booked. As a tiny club that is regularly overlooked by larger clubs, we believe that this year presents us with an opportunity to really grow, from adding more socials to forming a stronger bonds to other universities, this allows us to have practise matches before hand to ensure that we have the best chance to win as possible.  To further develop our club, we are really eager to collaborate with the SU closely.
