University College Badminton Club

University College Badminton Club is open to everyone, regardless of ability. We offer both social badminton as well as team training so whether you have never picked up a racquet before and just want to have fun playing a fantastic sport or if you want to train regularly and compete as part of our award-winning teams, we are excited to have you. For the past few years we have been a very successful club, winning the Women’s and Mixed Badminton Premiership Leagues within the university, winning the Women’s Badminton Varsity against York University, and winning the Durham Festival of Sport throughout the years. Join our success and our success will become your success!

We usually have social badminton once a week and another session for our teams but we are hoping to increase the number of sessions this year. So saying, join us at badminton, meet the best people and, above all, have a load of fun!

President: Lucy Clennell – lucy.c.clennell@durham.ac.uk

Hello and welcome to Badminton! My name is Lucy (extremely contactable via my email or via Facebook) and I am the 2023/2024 Badminton President and Women’s Captain! I am a 3rd Year Liberal Arts student, studying English Literature and Philosophy, and I was previously the Women’s Captain for both Badminton and Squash from 2022-2023. This year I have kept up my alliances and I am also Women’s Captain for Castle Squash as well as Treasurer for Castle Mixed Ultimate Frisbee! I am a couch potato turned sportswoman and so my goal this year is to recruit everyone to join my favourite sports! Feel free to get in touch with me about anything from Castle sport and music to DU sport and music – I do a lot and I love meeting new people!
