Over the past decade the Badminton Group has become established as a vibrant and enjoyable U3A activity that seeks to create a positive social atmosphere in a sporting environment adapted to all strengths and abilities.  

The group is highly supportive of its members, whether or not they have previous experience of playing Badminton. We are also fortunate to have a number of very experienced members who are happy to help others gain the most from each session.  

We place emphasis on playing with a wide variety of partners each week, in a light and friendly atmosphere.

We are always pleased to welcome new and returning players, whether you are active sportsmen and women, haven’t played since your school days or have never played before. So don’t hesitate to contact us if you´d like to give it a try.

We meet in the Sports Hall of the Polideportivo in Oliva from 9-11 am each Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. 

Sessions are open to everyone, even if you've never played before.

u3a Oliva also offers a more challenging group for intermediate and advanced players - which plays on a Wednesday morning. Many members participate in both groups.

Periodically over the year, we also organise social events for members, their friends and families.

The Badminton club takes a rest through July and August.

Getting involved

The Badminton Club (Open to All) is currently full. Any interested players are welcome to join the waiting list.
