Badminton Ontario is a member based organization where players, coaches, officials, supporters and other stakeholders are encouraged to affiliate with a club. Players receiving specific benefits like provincial or national rankings, scholarships, team selection, financial support for training and competition expenses, will need to be affiliated with a club. Club affiliation for membership will generally be completed by Club President, Owner, Head Pro, or Board Chair. Individual athletes are permitted to switch badminton clubs one (1) time in each competitive season.
