About De Anza Badminton
In 2008-2009, after a five-year hiatus, Intercollegiate Women's Badminton returned to De Anza College. After 2nd place finishes in the Coast Conference from 2010-2012, the Dons won the Coast Conference and State Championships in 2013 & 2014. The 2014 team was also the State Scholar Badminton Team for California, with a team GPA of 3.5
The De Anza Badminton Team is open to all students who are willing to commit themselves and work to excel at badminton. Prior competitive experience is desired but not required. Although the Women’s Traveling Team carries to 6-12 athletes to each match, and there is room for many more to take part in the training and exhibitions. The women's team annually visits Southern California to prepare for championship competition.
Male athletes who are willing to work will be afforded exhibition opportunities against collegiate opposition. In the last five years the men competed against Stanford, San Jose State and Evergreen Valley. Our goal to give all De Anza Students the opportunity to raise their level of play.
