Welcome to University of York Badminton Club
The University Badminton Club is one of the largest clubs on campus with over 150 members every year. This means that club sessions are always fantastic, with a good turn out every time and plenty of games to be played. Club sessions are open to everyone – from those of you who have never picked up a racket to those of you who could challenge Lin Dan himself. Shuttles are provided for all sessions as well as rackets for those who haven’t got their own at no additional cost for club members. Furthermore, anyone new gets 2 free sessions before they need to pay membership. To join please come along to any club session and speak to a committee member (you can spot them by their awesome shirts). You can also buy membership on the YUSU website alongside Black Tier.
Club is a great way to meet new people and get to know our Committee members. College captains also use these sessions to scout for their players, so it’s a chance to really show your stuff!
The cost is just £25 per academic year which is unbelievable value for money. That’s £25 for over 170 hours of badminton in 30 weeks! So little to lose and so much to gain! Below are our session times for 2020/21.
