With more than 100 subscribers, more than 40 active members, two men’s and one women’s team, the Badminton club is one of the largest societies at Churchill. We are a friendly club welcoming all members of the College of all abilities to come along and have a go! We have 2 two-hour sessions per week during Michaelmas and Lent terms, Mondays 4-6pm at the University Sports Centre and Sundays 10am-12pm at the Chesterton Sports Centre. There is no charge for attending and all equipment will be provided by the club at the sessions if you require them.
For those seeking a competitive edge to their badminton, all three of our teams participate in the College Open/Women’s League and the Cuppers tournament throughout the year. The League matches are doubles games scheduled approximately once per week in Michaelmas and Lent terms, while Cuppers is an intercollegiate knock-out competition in Lent term. In 2018, our men’s first team and our women’s team, both currently playing in the League first division, won and reached the semi-final of the Cuppers tournament. Suffice it to say that we are among the best Colleges in badminton!
The club is always looking for more players of any standard, so please get in contact with the Captain.
