Team Bath offers a full range of badminton from performance players seeking to represent their country to sessions for children, young people and recreational players.

We have developed players that have gone on to represent their country.

Among the players who have trained at the Sports Training Village are double Olympians Richard Vaughan and Egypt's Hadia Hosny El Said.

A number of successful players, including Hadia (Medical Biosciences) and Heather Olver (Coach Education & Sports Development), have combined training with studying at the University of Bath.

We have also hosted international and national competitions and training camps for the Malaysian national team, including the team's final camp ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

A great place to train and compete

Our sprung wood floors in both the main Sports Hall and the Founders’ Hall are ideal both for performance players and for a recreational game and are perfect as a venue for  badminton tournaments at all levels.

We have hosted:

• England v Japan (2009)
• The Badminton England Elite Open Circuit
