The UWE Badminton club provides a friendly atmosphere for all players with different abilities and backgrounds. We have members from countries all over the world, joining our club not only means taking part in a competitive sport but also interacting with people who have other interests, cultures and languages. We are also committed to our recreational members and we always encourage wider participation. Throughout the year the committee will organise regular socials at various venues across Bristol for our members to enjoy.

Please like and follow our facebook page!! We will post all club updates on there e.g. socials, COVID annoucements, Training updates etc.


Never touched a racket? Played for years? We cater for all abilities (sessions may differ due to COVID):

Members can enjoy recreational sessions on Fridays (19:30-22:30).

For the more advanced players, our Men's and Women's squads train on Sundays (18:30-20:30).

If you fancy playing for our competitive BUCS team you will need to attend one of our trials sessions! In this session you will be matched up with those of similar skilll level and then assessed to see if you could be the new face of UWE Badminton :)  


All our sessions are played in the UWE Centre for Sport on Frenchay Campus.
