The philosophy of Badminton can be described as "how you are on the court is how you are in life".

In 1992, Badminton was introduced to Sacred Heart College by two students, Ziyad Shah and Shane Dineen. Sacred Heart fielded its first Premier team in 1995. While the College has not hosted a Premier team in recent years there is a hope that we can do so again.

We continue to play in the East Auckland competition, aiming to enter three teams. Each team comprises of five students so each week one acts as a reserve. They travel by taxi van or private car.

The D'Souza Family Trust Cup for the Outstanding Player of the Year was awarded to Kong Areewatanasombat in 2019.

The Sacred Heart College Badminton Trophy for the Most Promising Player was awarded to Luke Mackenzie in 2019.
