St Paul’s Collegiate School offers badminton as a summer and winter sport option. Students from all year levels and of all athletic ability are invited to join the badminton programme.
Social badminton is played in the gym during Term 1 (from 3.45pm to 4.45pm) for both boys and girls. During Terms 2 and 3, competitive badminton is offered in addition to social badminton.
Usually one boys’ team and one girls’ team compete in the Waikato Secondary Schools' competition. Students are required to practice once per week, as well as compete in one match per week which is usually held on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday in the St Paul’s sports centre.
Possible coaching, qualifying and national tournament fees, as well as travel and accommodation costs, are disbursed to students' accounts accordingly.
