Our badminton club
The Badminton Club is open to players who are passionate about badminton and those looking to improve their health. You can play either individually or as part of a team, and create lasting friendships on and off the court.
Badminton will develop your team work skills, increase your fitness levels, and improve your aerobic stamina, agility, speed and precision.
We cater for both men’s and women’s badminton teams, with the chance to represent UEL in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues and Cup on Wednesday afternoons. This is a great opportunity to represent your university and feel part of something special with UEL Sports.
Even if you’re not a player but have a passion for the game and want to get involved, the Badminton Club is always looking for people to officiate, blog, write match reports and act as committee
The Badminton Club have an experienced and highly dedicated badminton coach who attends all training sessions and fixtures. He has vast university experience working with Imperial University and King’s College London, and has coached beginners to elite players.
Training takes place every Tuesday at 5:00-7:00pm in SportsDock, which is located on the Docklands Campus.
There are many benefits to playing badminton at UEL, including:
- Opportunity to socialise with other students and make friends
- Socialise together outside of training and host social nights
- Physical benefits - badminton is a very fast-paced sport and can help burn off up to 450 calories per hour!
- Great way to take your mind off of studying and assignments for just 2 hours a week plus matches
Badminton can be an energetic or light workout, depending on your playing style. You’ll get to exercise your entire body through leaps, lunges, twists, turns and stretches.
You will improve your balance and co-ordination, and boost upper body strength, core stability and stamina.
