In addition to our BUCS teams, this year we have entered a team of social players into the Dundee Area Badminton Association league or DABA league. The squad has played 5 matches drawing on a mixture of 15 different players and having some great games. Currently 4th in division 3, DABA has given match experience to those that missed out on a place in the BUCS squad and it is hoped that even more players will get involved next semester.
We have noticed a real improvement in our DABA players throughout the semester and we have held numerous mixed training sessions for both DABA and team players. Two of our DABA players, Daisy and Callum, have now joined our committee and, with re-trials planned for January, there is the opportunity for DABA players to continue with their progression and join the BUCS team.
