Badminton  - Experienced Players

The aim of these sessions is to prepare players for competitive play in a fun and challenging weekly session.  Open to all experienced badminton players in Forms II to VI, this activity offers varied match-play in both singles and doubles games and affords an excellent opportunity to improve match practice. 

The club runs a competitive singles championship at three different age-levels for boys and girls, as well as the Academy’s Cranfield Cup Inter-house tournament.  There are opportunities for players to represent the school in the Central Schools Tournament and further national events. Friendly matches are also arranged against local schools.  

At the end of each term two tournaments are played, with players receiving handicaps to allow younger or less advanced players to make a major contribution. Players who perform well in these fixtures are selected to play in team matches, and to represent the school in the above events. The club has been highly successful in recent years and has won several trophies.

Fridays, 3:30pm – 5:00pm, Games Hall
