Univ win badminton Cuppers
On Wednesday 4 June, Univ overcame Wadham to lift this year’s Badminton Cuppers trophy.
Captain Hanif Mahadi reports:
“It has been a victorious year for the University College Badminton Club, highlighted with our glorious win in the Oxford University Badminton Men Cuppers and to be crowned as champions.
The cuppers started with a clean sweep win (6-0) against Lady Margaret Hall and proceeded to the quarter finals to play against 3 times reigning champions, St. Edmund Hall. Our quarter-finals encounter had made to be the most anticipated match, however we managed to defeat the badminton giants with just one point.
We cruised through the semi-finals with a victory over Magdalen College (5-1) and finally meeting with Wadham College in the finals, where we emerged as champions with 5-1 win.
This tremendous season in badminton cuppers is all in gratitude to the University College Badminton squad: Christopher Lim, Claire Weaver, Alina Gerasimenko, Christian Wehrenfenning, Raphael Chow and Hanif Mahadi.”
