Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I join the badminton club?

It is a great way to meet others who enjoy playing badminton and to stay active throughout the year. We encourage members of all levels to come try out the club!

How do I join the club?

Anyone that is a current UC Davis student (undergraduate or graduate) or faculty may join the club. Please attend any of our practices and speak to an officer about joining the club. You will need to purchase a membership for the club, which is $50/quarter or $120/year. This membership fee mainly goes to the cost of the feather shuttles that are provided at practice. If you don’t plan on coming as often throughout the quarter, you may also pay a $5 drop-in fee each time you come. There is also B2H insurance that the school requires all members to purchase before joining the club. This is a $20 fee that is paid for online, which covers the entire year.

Where can I buy the B2H insurance?

B2H insurance can be bought here

I do not have proper equipment. What can I do?

If you do not have a racket, you may ask one of the officers and they will be able to lend one to you for that practice. Warm up birdies and game birdies are provided by the club. We recommend that you wear comfortable clothes and athletic shoes to practice as well.

Can I join the club if I am not an experienced player?

Members of all levels are welcome to join the club! Our members vary from beginner players to advanced players. We hope that you are willing to give the club a try no matter how long you’ve been playing for!
