Badminton Canada mourns the passing of Gil Murray, Founder of Black Knight.

OTTAWA, ON.
September 16, 2016

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Gil Murray, father, grand-father and founder of Black Knight. Gil was a prominent figure on the Canadian badminton scene and the growth of racquets sports in Canada. 

For over four decades, he was a tireless supporter of countless badminton programs, events and athletes throughout the country. His vision and involvement on many provincial and national boards strongly contributed to the expansion of the sport and to many Canadian athletes achieving their dreams of playing at the highest international levels, including the Olympics.

Anil Kaul, President of Badminton Canada, shares: “"Badminton has lost a true giant of our sport - Gil was a passionate supporter of badminton, and impacted the sport at the local, community, provincial, and national levels."
