Omnibus Conversations

📥  Omnibus Conversations

OMNIBUS CONVERSATIONS with Jack Whitehead, Life-time member of OMNIBUS, take place monthly or bi-monthly and focuses on a topic of interest. In 2015 the focus was on Knowledge Transfer, Exchange, Exploitation and Creation and exploring the University's values. Watch this Blog for announcements of timing and venues. Please join us.

Jack is coordinating the OMNIBUS contribution to the University’s 50th Anniversary Celebrations (from October 2016), will draw attention to the creation of living-posters for the celebrations. For illustrative examples of living-posters see:

Contact Paul Reddish for more information.

THE STAFF BADMINTON CLUB is an active bi-weekly club for members of staff only. We play Mondays and Thursdays between 12.30pm and 2.30pm usually in the STV. Membership is via Omnibus and costs £9.50 a month (requires membership of Omnibus).

Mondays are currently played under  the No Strings scheme, sponsored by Badminton England. This requires payment of 50p at the STV reception every time you play. This arrangement will continue until the No Strings scheme is unavailable, after which we would have to return to Staff Badminton only bookings – with an increased membership fee.

We are a very friendly club and are always seeking new members. We use plastic shuttles to keep the costs down, the standard of play is "club" standard and quite competitive, which is somewhere between beginners and the university's third team! We primarily play doubles and have 2 courts booked for every session.
