Welcome to Durham University Badminton Club


Badminton at Durham University is enjoyed by players of all standards, from social clubs in the colleges right up to competitive inter-university competitions played by the elite squad. DUBadC oversees all badminton played at the university and often gets involved with other clubs within the local community. Whatever your interest, there will be an opportunity for you to play badminton during your time at Durham.


Are you interested in playing badminton for the university?

Preseason is the first port of call for new players interested in joining the squad. This consists of two weeks of badminton and social activities with the current elite squad the week before Freshers week. This year preseason will run from 16th-27th September. Please contact our Men and Women's Captains (emails below) if you are interested!
