University of Tennessee Badminton

            The University of Tennessee has a badminton club all their own. The collegiate club is located on campus in Knoxville, TN on 2111 Volunteer Blvd. This club is mostly for students, faculty, and staff but is also available as a source of recreation for the surrounding community every Sunday when it sponsors guests. They offer a chance for anyone to play and also give more advanced players the opportunity to be coached and compete at a higher level. The head coach is Rod Sutch and the assistant coach is Farhaz Nooralli.          

            Currently, the UT Badminton Club has 30 members and is looking to grow. They focus on recreation and exercise but can also train for athletes who want to advance their skills to a higher level. This club is excited at the opportunity to host upcoming tournaments in order to allow more players to compete with each other.

            The meeting times change every semester but if you’re interested in having playing with UT Badminton Club contact Tara Sripunvoraskul at or Alicia Purcel at
