Badminton at Westlake Boys has a long tradition of success.
The Premier Badminton team won the National Secondary tournament in 2016.
The school has won this national tournament ten times during the last fourteen years. Due to the number of players at the elite level Westlake sends 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 North Harbour squads.
Junior and senior boys also get the opportunity to represent the school in the North Harbour schools competition. Badminton North Harbour holds a senior competition in term two and a junior competition in term three. All boys who wish to play are included in these teams. 2016 saw 14 teams in the senior tournament and 8 teams in the junior tournament.
