BACK ON COURT… IT’S PLAYTIME!

Badminton Nova Scotia’s (BNS) volunteer Board and Leadership Group are excited to announce the start of the 2022-2023 season.

Over the past 2+ years the Badminton Nova Scotia Board and Leadership Group have strategically restructured and effectively stewarded the organization and its operations through human resource, financial as well as sport governance and development adversity.

Through the efforts of many dedicated and passionate volunteer community members, Badminton Nova Scotia is ready to launch the 2022-2023 season and begin growing and developing the wonderful sport of Badminton across Nova Scotia. “It Takes a Village… and we are excited to hear how Badminton is bringing communities together again for FUN… FITNESS and FRIENDSHIP to enjoy the world’s fastest racquet sport.”

SCHEDULE of COMPETITIONS & EVENTS for 2022-2023 SEASON

The Badminton Nova Scotia EVENTS LIST & SCHEDULE has all the community, provincial, Atlantic & National competitions and events currently planned for the coming 2022-2023 season. New this year are four (4) weekends identified in the schedule for communities to plan and host local competitions or events to promote and invite all local badminton enthusiasts to get out and play together and experience the social and physical enjoyment of leisure/recreational/competitive skill development & match play.

To kick start the 2022-2023 season it is hoped that people will find an opportunity to gather and play as part of the first “Badminton Nova Scotia Community Event Weekend SEPTEMBER 9 to 11 2022″ and send pictures and captions to our Community Relations email account community@badmintonns.ca for sharing via Instagram, Facebook and the BNS website.

JOIN BNS & MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL

Badminton Nova Scotia offers CLUB MEMBERSHIPS as well as INDIVIDUAL MEMBERSHIPS. As a result of the COVID experience much more emphasis on, due to liability concerns re insurance as well as contact tracing, management and compliance. As a result any group who joins BNS as a member CLUB must also ensure that all persons who participate also become members of Badminton Nova Scotia by purchasing a $10 individual “COMMUNITY MEMBERSHIP”. This approach is consistent with other sports within Sport Nova Scotia and will enable BNS to better understand who is playing badminton across the province. BNS hopes that past players will also see the $10 individual “Community Membership” as a sort of donation to the sport of badminton on an annual basis as every membership contributes to the sustainability and future development of badminton at all levels.

To JOIN or RENEW YOUR Individual Membership please visit the “MEMBERS – Sign Up… Be a Member” section of the BNS Website. For Club Membership information please email members@badmintonns.ca
