STARTING YOUR OWN CLUB

BCAN Resource: Requirements to build a Badminton facility

Badminton is a fast paced and challenging sport, it has seen its popularity grow rapidly after the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto and the 2016 Olympic Summer Games in Rio.  Many of Canada’s top badminton players have been developed in Ontario and have excelled within the international stage just like Ontario natives Michelle Li, Alexandra Bruce, Rachel Honderich, Jason Ho-Shue, Brian Yang, Joshua Hurlburt-Yu, Nyl Yakura, Andrew Dabeka, Mike Beres, Bryan Blanshard, Mike Bitten, and many more

Many of Ontario top athletes start of in a beginner program at their local club and grow from there! Ontario has many of the most competitive and fun clubs out there and they are the backbone of our community. If you are interested in starting and creating your own badminton club, please review the Badminton Canada resource above.  Affiliated badminton clubs in the Ontario community are also entitled to club member benefits such as insurance coverage, member participation privileges, event access, e-learning modules, access to NCCP Coaching Clinic, etc.  To affiliate your Badminton Club, you may contact the District President in which your club is located.
