Badminton at Westlake Boys has a long tradition of success. The Premier Badminton team has won the National Secondary tournament eight times during the last ten years. Due to the number of elite level, during the last two years, Westlake has sent two teams to the National tournament.
Competition for places in these teams has been strong. Westlake is fortunate to have the North Harbour Badminton Hall on it northern boundary which enables players to train before and after school in Harbour squads. Junior and senior boys also get the opportunity to represent the school in the North Harbour schools competition.
In 2013 Westlake entered five teams in the A Grade and ten teams in the B Grade. The term three competition is for junior players, where Westlake has entered one A Grade team and eight B grade teams.
