Badminton

About

The Badminton Club has both a competitive women’s as well as a men’s team. However, in case you are not selected as a player for the team, you can still participate in club-wide activities throughout the academic year. Moreover, we also have off-court club events and team events, such as dinners and movie nights.

Find out more information on the recreational offer.

Equipment needed: Please wear indoor sport shoes and sport clothing. Rackets will be provided during the trial. If you have your own racket, please bring it to the session if possible.

To assess your skills, we will do a variety of Badminton exercises, quick games against other attendees or even team players, as well as footwork.
