1st Team Results 2014/15 Season
The 2014/15 season was one of the most successful in recent years for our first team. They narrowly lost out to Dundee in the last game of the season to finish 2nd in BUCS 2nd division. This leaves them in a strong position for the 2015/16 season.
In the Conference Cup, the 1st team finished top of pool 2 and played the semi-final against Edinburgh 2nds. Sadly Edinburgh won 8 - 4 but they had a strong team and went on to win against Glasgow 2nds for the Conference Cup title.
1st Team History
The results of the 1st team have steadily been improving over the last few years with the team slowly climbing up the places. The team continues to train and play together to continue their constant improvement.
2nd Team Results 2014/15 Season
This is the exciting first year of St Andrews having a 2nd team in BUCS competition! They performed well coming up against stiff competition from across the country. They finished 3rd in the 4th division in BUCS and 3rd in pool 4 of the Conference Cup. This was a great start for the St Andrews 2nd team to build upon in the years to come

Dundee Area Badminton Association
DABA is played in our local area and is made up of both student and local teams. At a match a team of 6 (3 men and 3 women) play a series of level and mixed doubles games to win the match.
This year we only entered one team into DABA made up mostly of our second team players. St Andrews finished 3rd overall in the second division. Special mention to Krista Plociennik, Hayleigh Edson and Kevin Hale who were ranked in the individual player stats with some of the highest percentage of games won.
2 teams competed in DABA, with the 1st team in the division 1 and the second team in divisions 2. Both the 1st and 2nd team finished 5th in their respective divisions. Congratulations to players with the highest percentage of games won, Johanna Meyer, Krista Plociennik, Becca Williamson, Maneesh Kuruvilla and Danny Myers.
Also, the 1st team came runners up in the DABA Handicap Cup to Dundee Uni.
These are fun two-day tournaments run by BadmintonScotland that encourage players of all abilities and ages to take part in. You enter into groups by your ability, either social or competitive, and compete to win your division. You then progress into the knockout stages. They are great to meet new people and have a great day of competition.
