Freshers' Week 2018

Posted by Member 2186844, Saturday, 22nd September 2018 @ 3:14pm

  • Hello and welcome to RUMS Badminton - and welcome back to our returning members! We have an exciting schedule of events planned for Freshers' Week 2018! First of all, why not come find us at the Freshers' Fair from 17:00 on Tuesday 25th September, where you'll have a chance to meet the Committee and find out more about what's going on over the next few weeks. Or you can come and say hi on the Freshers' Pub Crawl later that evening!

    On Wednesday we have a whole host of events to introduce you to the world of RUMS Badminton. From 12:00 we'll be hosting a Freshers' Picnic - travel to Hampstead Heath with us from Euston Square or meet us there at 12:30. Bring some snacks but expect some *free* food too! After that we'll take you across the road to the first Social Practice of the year, held at the Royal Free from 15:30 - 17:00. All abilities are welcome, including complete beginners (we've all been in that position!). Then in the evening, come and join us at Freshers' Sportsnight - we'll be in the Huntley from 19:30. Bring £10 in cash and in return you'll get unlimited drinks throughout the evening, plus it's the perfect chance to meet the rest of the society!

    The week doesn't stop there - our next social practice will be on Saturday 29th September from 14:00 - 17:00 at Somer's Town Community Sports Centre, just a ten minute walk from the UCL Campus. Feel free to come for the whole session or just turn up for a short while - we'll have games going on all afternoon. Again, all abilities are welcome, even if you've never held a racquet before!

    We look forward to seeing you there!

  • Hi, I’m Patrick, and I’m going to be RUMS badminton’s president for the coming year. I have been part of the club and the men’s team since the first week of freshers, and now as a fifth year I hope to take the club to new heights. I have loved every moment of being part of the club, both on the team and social side, and I hope you will too whilst I’m in charge. You can often find me at social practice, passing on tips to members to improve their game, and at the RUMS weekly staple social event: Sportsnight! If you have any questions, feel free to ask me or drop me an e-mail ( Look forward to seeing you soon!

    Check out our social media accounts:

Welcome to tour!

Hello lucky ducks. You're coming on tour!!!

Lots to do now so please read the following carefully and reply asap:

  1. T-SHIRT SIZES - Let us know YOUR size please, (just reply to this email) the sizes are: S (36/38"), M (38/40"), L (41/42"), XL (43/44"), XXL (45/47").
  2. TOUR NAMES - if you have a funny story or nickname for someone let us know asap. Everyone gets a tour name and the best ones are always submitted by friends! Just reply to this email or tell a committee member anytime, soon.
  4. THEME - of course fancy dress is mandatory, the theme this year is the FOOD CHAIN. Get started on your suitable costume. Freshers: you guys are the producers. Think photosynthetic algae and plants. Second years: get started on your dream exoskeleton because you are the insects and other creepy crawlies. 3rd/4th years: you are the herbivores and insectivores. Think primary and secondary consumers. 5th/6th/beyond years: you are the top predator, get carnivorous with it. (More suggestions on costumes will follow but start thinking!)

Just as a reminder, tour is 27th-29th of NOVEMBER so it's coming soon, it's going to be amazing, get excited!!!!
