WELCOME TO ASTON BADMINTON CLUB!
...Aston's biggest, growing sports club
Who are we?
Badminton is the fastest racket sport in the world. Join Aston Hawks now to find your place in this sport, may it be competitive play in BUCS and BBL, casual play with newly made friends or just to keep you away from the books, Aston Hawks has a place for you. Aston Badminton Club is an ever-growing, motivated sports club here at Aston University. A club that strives to provide the best and most friendliest service to all students. Encouraging freshers and returning students to keep fit, have fun and make new friends throughout their journey at Aston.
What do we do?
BUCS Official Aston Hawks Badminton Squad
Each year a NEW women's and men's squad is selected by the new captains. TEAM TRIALS are held at the beginning of the academic year where it's YOUR time to shine, to stand out and become a representative of Aston Hawks Badminton. Home and away LEAGUE MATCHES occur every Wednesday against other Universities in the UK. You will also receive weekly TRAINING SESSIONS in the Woodcock Sports Centre on campus. But during COVID-19 BUCS are organising a local league for friendlies in term 1. This will run in a similar fashion to the standard BUCS competition but is more focused on a fun and friendly return to sport.
Casual Social Sessions
There are two social sessions per week for our members who like to play for fun and socialise! They are ran on a 'PEG system' whereby the committee will ensure each person gets to play and mixes it up a little.
Fun, exciting socials!
Fantastic socials are organised by the social secretary that are mostly open to all members of the club. A nice way to get out of your bubble and to integrate with others. The socials include: nights out, bowling, ice-skating, Nandos, German Christmas market, karaoke etc.
Birmingham Badminton League
This year there will be a strong emphasis on Aston participating in the BBL, providing more players the opportunity to enter matches at a friendly and semi-competetive level, forming another platform for players to test out their skills outside of BUCS.
What do you get for your money?
The club offers two types of memberships - Standard and Premium.
STANDARD MEMBERSHIP: access to the Thursday 20:30-22:00 social sessions where plastic shuttles and rackets will be provided.
PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP: access to the Thursday 20:30-22:00 and Saturday 13:00-15:00 (to be confirm) social sessions where feather shuttles and rackets will be provided.
