Badminton at Radley runs in the Michaelmas and Lent Terms. Shells get a tantalising taster at the Games Circus shortly after arrival, and it becomes available to boys in the Remove year onwards.
To play badminton, Lower School boys opt to follow the Alternative Sports Programme and select it as one of their suite of choices. Sixth Formers are able to commit to badminton more exclusively.
Radley's badminton facilities were renovated for January 2014, providing brand-new flooring for our 5 courts. The competitive squad plays a school match nearly every week in Michaelmas Term, but our visiting coach caters to all levels, from beginner up to the most technically demanding play. The most important qualities are commitment and enjoyment, and the emphasis on doubles means that teamwork and camaraderie is a key part of the game.
