Welcome to Loughborough Students Badminton Club! As one of the biggest clubs in the Athletic Union, we offer something for everyone! The club is split into 4 main sections:
Elite – These players perform at an international level and train around 8 times a week. For more information on the elite squad, please contact head coach Mike Adams – K.M.Adams@lboro.ac.uk.
Squad – These players are predominantly national or high county standard players. They make up the rest of the BUCS teams, and also have teams in the top divisions of the local Leicestershire league.
Academy – This section of our club is for county to high club standard players. They also play in the local Leicestershire league.
Development – Here you will find people of all standards, from those who play lower level county, to those just after the odd game and some fun. They also have teams in the local league.
We have many different teams who compete in many different leagues, here is the breakdown:
National Badminton League: This is a brand new league, which is to be broadcast live on sky sports. Our team is made up of National and International players (some of which are students here at Loughbororugh) and we are lucky enough to be one of the 6 teams competing in the competition for the first time. We have 2 home matches this year, more information and tickets will be available nearer the time!
BUCS: This is the Inter University Competition. We have 5 teams who compete, 3 male teams and 2 female.
Leicestershire League: We have 7 Leicestershire league teams- 4 mens teams (div 1,2 and 3), 2 womens teams (both in division 1), 1 mixed team (div 1) and 1 new hall combination league team (div 1)
