Tembusu Shuttlers

The Tembusu Shuttlers aims to provide a platform for fellow badminton enthusiasts in Tembusu College to gather, recognise each others' potential, and refine our skills as a team. Ranging from beginners to more advanced players, our team aims to grow together — not just as players but also as part of a community through badminton.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
