To those who are coming up to Oxford for the first time, welcome! To those returning for another year, welcome back! The Clubnight session on Sunday of 3rd Week (21st October, 13:30-15:30 at Iffley Rd. Sports Centre) will take the form of a fun, team-based tournament and is the perfect opportunity for you to get to know fellow Badminton enthusiasts in a relaxed setting.

The tournament is open to all students and staff within the university. To enter, simply fill out the Google Form here. Guests are most welcome to sign up although in the event of the tournament being oversubscribed, priority will normally be given to O.U.Ba.C. members.

Teams will be drawn on the day, (hopefully) in such a way that each team has a fair chance of winning.

If you have any queries regarding the tournament, or are experiencing difficulties in signing up, please contact Tom Hadfield (thomas.hadfield@exeter.ox.ac.uk).

Welcome 2018\2019

26 August 2018

O.U.Ba.C. would like to offer everyone a warm welcome to Oxford for the 2018/2019 season! There will once again be plenty of opportunities to play badminton this year including college badminton, Clubnight and in the Squad. Most colleges will be offering some recreational badminton within college and there will be opportunities to play against other colleges if you fancy a more competitive game. For more details about the badminton in your college, email your captain (a list can be found here) or ask one of the committee. O.U.Ba.C. also organises its own recreational badminton session, Clubnight. This is a chance for anyone based in Oxford to play some fun, light-hearted badminton and there is always a good game to be had! To find out more about the times that are running check out the sessions list here, find us at the Freshers' Fair or come along to one of the free sessions in 1st week. Those looking to play some competitive badminton might be interested in the Squad. This is an opportunity for some of the best players in the university to represent O.U.Ba.C. in matches against the local teams, other universities and in the all-important Varsity match. For a chance to join the squad see the information on trials below.

Trials for the squad will be held on the weekend between 0th week and 1st week at Iffley Road Sports Centre.

Men: 11:30-13:30 - Saturday 6th October

Women: 13:00-15:0 - Sunday 7th October

Please bring your racket if you have one, but there will be some provided if not. Also, make sure that you arrive before the session begins, as we have a limited amount of time available!
