Our main weekend sessions (Saturday 13:00-15:45 and Sunday 12:00-13:45 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 £10 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 (7pm-9:45pm) and Fridays (8pm-9:45pm); the calendar https://sites.google.com/site/universityeaglessouthampton/calendar indicates when these sessions are running. To attend these sessions, you will need to purchase the £75 Eagles membership.
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 bought at https://joinin.soton.ac.uk/. You must book sessions online before turning up.
All clubs and societies within the Students' Union are run entirely by students. The student committee for Badminton (Recreational) this year are:
