Oxford University Badminton Club (O.U.Ba.C.) is one of the 3 largest sport clubs in Oxford. All our matches and practice sessions take place at Oxford University Sports Centre at Iffley Road.
At ClubNight, players of any standard are welcome. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly and there will always be likeminded players around to have a good match or two.
The Squad offers the opportunity for experienced players to compete against other universities in the UK and prepare for the annual Varsity Match against Cambridge. If you want to represent the University and regularly play in matches against other university teams, then come along to the trials at the beginning of Michaelmas term.
Aside from the athletic aspects of the club, a wide variety of social activities arranged throughout the year give all members a chance to get to know each other on and off the court.
The club is dedicated to allowing students to play the great sport at any level; from social to Blues standard. For any questions about the club, please email the OUBaC president. See our website www.oubac.com for further details.
Just a reminder that there is a social this Saturday after the clubnight tournement. Whether you've only seen badminton on the telly, or are a true badminton aficionado, everyone is welcome!
It will be taking place at Exeter College (Turl St) in the Stapledon Room this Saturday at 7. If you have any troubles finding it, let us know. We will be providing some free drinks and snacks!
Thank you very much to everyone who has signed up for the Trinity Term tournament on the 26th May. There are still a limited number of spots left for both Clubnight and Squad players, so if you haven't yet, I would encourage you to sign up now!
Following the survey I posted on fb, we've decided to open up the sessions so that any member of squad will be able to turn up. We've also decided to designate the Monday 8:30 to 10:30pm session specifically for training. Hopefully, these sessions will be the basis for our training next year, and the captains will be taking a role in organising and leading the training. If you are coming to these sessions, please be prompt so we can be organised.
The other squad sessions on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday will be open, so that you can play matches/ whatever you want. If we manage the have a few people down in those sessions who want to train, there's definitely the availability to set up a training court and introduce drills. The idea is that there is enough flexibility so that people can play as much as they want.
Obviously with three sessions, I realise people might be spread thin. Please do message the people who you want to play with, or use our fb to communicate so we do get good attendance and get good games.
Hopefully these changes will benefit all, and give the squad the flexibility it needs this term.
