Team Bath offers a full range of badminton from performance players seeking to represent their country to sessions for children, club players and recreational players.
A history of top-level success
Team Bath’s elite badminton set-up is led by former England no.2 Peter Bush. He has been Team Bath Head Coach since 2005 and continues to develop players who have gone on to represent their country, including double Olympians Richard Vaughan and Hadia Hosny El Said.
A number of successful players, including London 2012 Olympian Hadia Hosny El Said (Medical Biosciences), Heather Olver (Coach Education & Sports Development), Angus Pederson (Chemical Engineering), Alex Lane (Sports Performance, pictured) and Molly Chapman have combined training with studying at the University of Bath.
Dan Bethell, who made history at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games by winning Britain’s first-ever para-badminton medal, also began his career at Team Bath and still trains here while in the South West.
A thriving recreational and club environment
More than 250 members enjoy the badminton provision offered by the university’s SU Sport programme, which includes social evenings and an annual Christmas tournament. Click here to visit the SU Sport badminton page.
Non-students can enjoy our top class facilities by hiring our courts whilst children can develop their badminton skills through our Team Bath Tribe badminton programme.
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.
