Getting Started


Space & Time

The first step is to locate a school gym, community centre or other facility that has available weekly time for your community to learn and play badminton. Be sure to look at suitability of ceiling height with minimum obstructions and a floor that is well maintained and not slippery… safety first


Play Times

Playtimes are just that… when and where is badminton being played in your community and who are the community organizers. Sometimes it will be open playtimes at recreation complexes such as Canada Games Centre or Dalplex where have to be a member but can play when courts are open. Other communities it will need to be when the school gym is available and a school or community member is opening the gym for public playtime
