What reaches a top speed of 493 km/h?

A Bugatti Veyron? A Peregrine Falcon? A North Korean Missile?

Neither of these. It’s in fact the fastest badminton smash ever as of August 2017, recorded by the Malaysian Tan Boon Heong. Badminton is truly the most exhilarating sport there is.

Trinity is one of the few colleges with its own court (only a 10 minute walk away from most freshers’ accommodation), which makes it one of the most popular sports at the college. With three men’s teams and one women’s team, we cater to all levels of players and if you don’t want to play competitively, you can always book the court with a friend for a more leisurely game. Badminton is also one of the most successful sports at Trinity with both the men's and womens's team highly ranked in the college league, and finalists in both Open and Mixed cuppers!

We are a super sociable group and get together often for dinners, formals and swaps with other colleges, making Badminton a fantastic way to meet other freshers.

We also do trips - this year we went to Birmingham to watch the All England Badminton Championships, the oldest badminton tournament in the world. In the summer we will be travelling to Hong Kong for pre-season training and sightseeing.

We are looking for both undergraduate and graduate shuttlers! If you are a skilled graduate player and are interested in playing competitively, drop me an email. 🙂
