Miss J Gatenby —

Badminton is a successful and thriving sport at Columba.

We have 15 teams competing weekly in the Otago Schools competition running throughout Term 2 at various locations around Dunedin. Badminton is a very social sport and offers a great opportunity to meet new people from across Dunedin and New Zealand. Our girls play with spirit and good sportsmanship, and it is clear to see the enjoyment across the courts every week. Columba has seen many successful Otago and South Island representatives, with these girls extending their training with the Otago Badminton Association. Endurance is a key component of the sport, with persistent training keeping us competitive in match play and tournaments. Badminton is a sport for anyone wanting fun, fitness, friends, and the opportunity to give something new a try.
