Badminton is a fairly recent addition to the sports provision at Sherborne having only been established in 2016.  From the outset it was popular, and in recent years the sport has grown to see a range of both competitive and recreational players wanting to participate.

Badminton brings together players from the Third to the Upper Sixth Form with varying levels of experience and skill. We have been lucky this year in that we have gained access to the new Sports Hall facilities at the School and this has allowed us to increase the number of boys we are able to accommodate in the sport. We have also gained a new coach in the form of Mr Spivey who supports the team in offering Badminton four times a week in both the Michaelmas and Lent Terms. The 1st Team consists of eight players who take part in a full programme of fixtures.  In recent seasons this has included matches against Canford, Millfield and Kings Taunton to name a few. The boys also enjoy regular fixtures with Sherborne Girls, offering an opportunity to both socialise and improve their match play.
