The badminton program in Warwick has gone from strength to strength over the past few years. The Mens and Womens team now compete in the Premier division which is the highest level of competition in the UK.

We have developed a performance badminton program which provides students with the opportunity and flexibility to access regular on court sessions alongside valuable support from strength and conditioning, physio, sport psychology amongst others.

We believe that this program will aid athletes in the development of their badminton careers and thus help them reach their full potential"
