What Is Preseason?
One of the many ways to get involved in the club is by coming to preseason. Preseason is essentially a week which gives sports clubs the opportunity to train before the beginning of the upcoming semester. The week typically consists of a mixture of both training alongside coaches and off-court training and team building activites. Preseason is open to players of all abilities and is designed with everyone in mind whether that be complete beginners or those more experienced.
Not only is preseason a great way to improve your badminton technique, but also to meet new people within the club itself. It is not all hard work and no play! Various kinds of socials are planned throughout the week such as pot luck dinners which give you some time to kick back off the court and have fun.
If you’re worried about not having anywhere to stay, the university tends to let out rooms in their halls (most of which are within walking distance of the sports centre) which you can stay in. There may also be the option of staying with someone else who's attending pre-season if they have room in their flat.
We hope to see you soon at preseason!
