University and College Tournament

Posted by .

The University and College Tournament is run by BADMINTONScotland and is aimed at intermediate players in university and college clubs. The venue has so far been the University of Stirling which requires a cheap train journey. It’s held at the start of November and all matches are played over the course of a day. The events held vary but there is always men’s and women’s singles followed by either mixed or level doubles.

The standard of play is very mixed with some beginners but also some fantastic players. The tournament isn’t aimed at first team players so national players aren’t allowed to enter. We’ve entered massive numbers of people into the event in the past and have proven that EUBC is the premier university badminton club. As always with a student event, the atmosphere is insane with everyone supporting their players loudly.

The publicity officer will organise entry into the event for everyone who is interested. Entries usually cost £5 per person, per event. The EUBC committee will also arrange for a mini bus if train times aren’t convenient.
