What we do
The Adelaide University Badminton Club provides an affordable place to play badminton either socially or in competition. We also plan to run an internal tournament during the year.
We heard your feedback about our membership fees so we've changed our membership structure this year. Membership will cost less up front and still get you access to social sessions, competition, and trainings. The change will result in a fairer pricing structure, where if you play less you pay less. We still are sticking to our mission of being the best value for money badminton for students, and for most of our members, it will be cheaper than past membership options.
Full year membership: $20
Social sessions: Once a week (Sunday's at CBC) $2 for members, $5 come and try for non-members (once only)
Trainings: Price TBC
Competition: Additional $2 playing fee per night to help subsidise shuttles ($10 total for B/C, $11 for A/SL)

Want to take your badminton to the next level? Competition is loads of fun and we're always looking for new players. The club has teams in the SABA (South Australian Badminton Association) A, B, and C grade competitions. If you're new to competition, C grade is the entry level usually with players playing competition for the first or second time, while A and B grade are for more experienced shuttlers. A grade is played on Tuesday nights, while B and C grades are played on Wednesday nights at Satterley Hall, Lockleys. If you're interested in competition, speak to one of our friendly committee members at a social session, or send us an email and we can give you more information!
The social sessions are played on Sundays with feather shuttles provided by the club. A one game to 21-points rotation will be implemented by the club if sessions become too busy to help enable all players to have a more equal chance of playing.
