CUBaC holds trials in week 1 of Michaelmas term. Trials 2019 were held on 12th & 13th October.
If you have missed the trials, you can get in contact with a captain who may in exceptional circumstances be able to organise an individual trial for you.
Otherwise, there is still a thriving College badminton league to get involved in.
Am I eligible to join CUBaC?
Club membership is open to all students of the University of Cambridge. We base our requirements on the BUCS eligibility requirements, upon which eligibility for the Varsity Match is also based. Unfortunately we do not have the training space to accept university members who are not eligible for BUCS. If you are uncertain about your eligibility, please don't hesitate to get in touch and we can read the small print together.
What's the standard like?
The Main Squad is a competitive standard - we have teams in both the BUCS league and the local South Cambridgeshire league. Most of these players have played badminton regularly for several years, at county level or equivalent. The Development Squad is aimed at those with potential to progress to the Main Squad - these players tend to be strong College league players who have previously lacked formal coaching.
How often do you train?
The Main Squad's weekly training programme includes 2-3 on-court sessions, strength & conditioning training, matches in BUCS or local league. Our players usually organise additional on-court and fitness training independently.
The Development Squad is for those who are almost at the standard of the Main Squad. This group trains once per week on Saturday mornings.
What about more casual badminton in Cambridge?
If you are a beginner or casual player, we recommend getting involved in college-level badminton instead. Colleges often have open club nights for casual play. There is also the College League and the Cuppers tournament, administered by CUBaC. Alternatively, you could play in a local club, names of which could be found on the BE Club Finder or the South Cambs League website.
