RecBad offers the opportunity to play casual badminton every weekend, open to anyone and everyone. With undergraduate, postgraduate and staff members, you have the opportunity to interact and play with people from across the university. We have complete beginners and experienced players, so all abilities are catered for! All in all, it’s a great chance to meet new people, enjoy our varied socials, and improve your badminton with a relaxed and friendly club. The best way to keep up to date with what’s going on is to join our Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/recbad/, or if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask us via email: recbad@soton.ac.uk.

Our main weekend sessions (Saturday 12:00-15:00 and Sunday 12:00-14:00 in the Jubilee Sports Hall) consist of doubles matches, with our unique ‘pegboard system’ making sure you get the chance to mix and play with loads of different people at a similar level (ALL abilities are welcome)! If singles is what interests you, there is the opportunity to take part in a singles ladder tournament during the year. Throughout the year, we will also host some awesome socials, so you can get to know your fellow members off the court as well as on the court! If you want to take part in these activities, then purchase the £15 RecBad membership.

If you want to play in a more competitive environment, the Eagles wing of RecBad offers sessions for more experienced players, who want to play with feather shuttles. These take place on Mondays and Fridays (7pm-9:45pm). To attend these sessions, you will need to purchase the £70 Eagles membership. Find us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/411526148859771) or on our website (https://sites.google.com/view/university-eagles-southampton/about-us). You can also contact us at: university.eagles.southampton@gmail.com. This year eagles is no longer accepting new members but if you are interested in joining please get in touch and we can place you on our waiting list.

A Sport and Wellbeing membership (such as a free Sports Pass) is also required in order to access the Jubilee Sports Hall and can be activated at https://joinin.soton.ac.uk/. You must book sessions online via the UoS Sport App before turning up.
