League teams

Southsea Badminton Club has five teams in the Portsmouth and Havant Badminton Association (PHBA) league 2023/24.

This includes two Open teams (replacing Men’s teams), one Women’s team, and two mixed teams.

How we run our league teams

To represent Southsea Badminton Club in the local league, you’ll first need to be an SBC member for a small fee (however being a member does not guarantee you a place in a team or in a particular fixture).

There is also a match fee for each match that you play in. Together these help cover your league affiliation fees, and court and shuttle costs.

Team selection

Team selection is undertaken by the club committee and team captains. Factors affecting a player’s inclusion in a team may include, but isn’t limited to:

  • Ability level
  • Team spirit, positive attitude and adherence to our Player Code of Conduct
  • Commitment to the club and wider SBC community, including attending club nights and/or training
  • Squad sizes and compatibility with other players
  • The team’s competitive position in the league

Pairs for individual fixtures will be selected by team captains.
