The University of Birmingham Badminton Club prides itself on having something for everyone, whether you are an elite athlete or simply want to play for fun. In 2015/16 UoB Badminton scored the 4th highest amount of BUCS points out of all sports at the university with two league titles, two runners-up medals in the cup and 3 Bronze medals at BUCS individuals, placing Birmingham as the 2nd best university for Badminton in the UK. UoB franchise the Birmingham Lions undertook their second season within the newly established national badminton league attracting elite players from around the globe to our very own doorstep, and finished off as Champions. Having a NBL team shows how UoB is very much involved at the top of the sport and gives a perfect environment for budding young players to be exposed to the highest level of play. As well as achieving highly within the BUCS teams UoB still has an every growing social squad playing on a Friday night. This squad proves very popular with people wanting to pick up a new sport and due to a high number of members provides an excellent environment to meet new friends which can said for the club as a whole.
