Welcome to EUBC!
Welcome to Edinburgh University Badminton Club!
It’s a great time to be part of one of the biggest and best clubs in Edinburgh! With weekly training opportunities and open-court sessions, we offer badminton for all abilities.
So whether you are a complete beginner and fancy some friendly games, or a regular player and want to try out for our many competitive teams, our club will be thrilled to have you!
Come September 2023, we’ll be back on the courts at full steam. We have 7 hours per week of open-court sessions (called our Club Sessions) where you can play with your friends or challenge some of the team members, so come along and get involved!
On a more competitive note, our 6 mixed teams compete in the Scottish BUCS leagues, with EUBC 1sts in the top division. We have consistently performed very well across all teams in their respective leagues. Every team also competes in the local Lothian Leagues, so there’s plenty opportunities to compete for the university once the season starts in September. If you fancy trying your luck for one of the teams, watch out for trials at the start of each semester – watch the space on our Facebook page!
If you are just looking for a casual hit to keep yourself active during the week, you are not alone! Join our members at our popular club sessions every Wednesday 6-10pm and Saturday 9-12pm. We also have a fun Circuits-style fitness session on Mondays 6 – 7:15pm open to everyone!

Socials & Volunteering
For those looking to join a warm community of friendly shuttlers, come along to our taster sessions, meet new people and have a laugh. All members are invited to our socials, organised by our lovely Social Secretaries, so keep an eye out for our posts! We usually hold weekly gatherings at a local pub after club sessions and have larger socials throughout the year, both sober and non-sober. All new members are invited to join a “family” at the start of the year, giving you a great chance to meet all the brilliant members of the club.
You can also join our Outreach programmes, where members get together for regular beach cleans and help out with the Lothian Disability Badminton Club in Musselburgh. We also organise regular blood drives for our members to take part in and give back to the community.
So whether you’ve never held a racquet in your life or you fancy yourself a bit of a hotshot, come along to our club and we guarantee you won’t want to leave. Like us on Facebook, join our group, and follow us on Instagram to make sure you stay up to date with the latest club news.
Hope to see you soon!
