Badminton is a winter sport that is played in Terms 2 and 3. This is one of the most popular sports at Riccarton with the gym being full several times a week with training’s and games. Last year our senior teams competed at Canterbury Championships with both teams finishing 3rd.

You can either play in the Canterbury School Sport league where teams compete against other schools each Wednesday after school and train with a Badminton Canterbury coach or you can play in the local league that plays weekly games against students from Riccarton and other neighboring schools.


Players must supply their own racket but shuttlecocks are supplied for all players. When using the gym players must wear sports shoes.
