What were the clubs accomplishments in the previous season?
In the last season we recruited the largest number of girls for the women’s team in the last few years. This was important as our previous women’s team had graduated and had left university to pursue their individual careers.
What are your aspirations for this season?
We hope to shape a larger, stronger team through weekly training and team building exercises. This will then help all of the teams to ascend into higher leagues.
Most memorable moment from last year?
There were quite a few which all involved one certain teammate. He would often fall asleep on the way to matches or in between matches! So we would take pictures of ourselves in funny poses with him in the back and it happened quite a few times so there are quite a lot of pictures!
Why should students join badminton?
It is one of DMU’s longest established clubs. DMU Badminton caters for all, from the highly talented to the complete beginners. Joining a sports club is one of the best and most enjoyable things you can do at University. At DMU Badminton you can keep fit while making friends too, so come along and get involved! We also hold socials on alternate Wednesdays where you can bring other friends and the drinks are cheap!
We also hold regular meals for the teams for e.g. A Christmas meal and we also have a varsity tournament at the end of the year against Leicester University. This is normally held at either of the universities’ sports halls where anyone can come and support either university. The varsity kit is also paid for so anyone playing in the tournament will receive it for free!
To join Badminton, find them at the Sports and Societies Fair on Thursday 25 September or get in touch via their links below:
