The UEA Staff Association runs two badminton groups for the enjoyment of the UEA staff community. Students and players from outside the university may be allowed to play at the discretion of the coordinators.
Both groups meet at the SportsPark and operate a ‘turn up and leave as you want' policy to make it easy to fit into colleagues' busy schedules. We swap playing partners each game so get a good range of experience and plenty of opportunity to improve and learn new tricks from each other. There is a small fee which is payable on the day at the court.
The Friday social badminton group of the Staff Association meets at 5pm most Fridays on the SportsPark courts, until 6:20pm or 7pm (it varies). These sessions are best suited for players of ‘improver’ to ‘advanced’ level (up to something like league standard). It is based on give-and-take on the part of all players to allow everyone to enjoy their games.
There is a small cash fee to pay per session at the court (a pay-as-you-go system), which is reduced for members of the Staff Association.

We look forward to seeing you!
