Colour System and Time Change

Last night was a great start to the season!  It was nice to see some old faces and welcome all the new ones!

Just a few updates:

Colour System:  We are taking this opportunity to advise you that we have changed the color system associated with the levels at the club.  There will be no self selection possible at this time.  If you feel that you are in a group that is either too strong or too weak for you then please advise one of the executives in writing via the “Contact Us” form found at https://miltonbadmintonclub.org/contact-us-2/.  There will be an opportunity for addressing these requests if required.   A method for doing so will be provided at a later date.

Time Change:  ​Our play time is being shifted to run from 8:30 – 10:30We have made it clear we are not agreeable to this change; however, the City has permits in the gym until 8:00 and now require a half hour to set us up.  This comes into effect beginning October 10, 2017 (next week).

Should you have questions, please leave a comment below or visit our Contact Us page.

Hi All,

Our Winter session begins October 3, 2017.  We are very excited about the new season and going back to our Yonex 300s!

Blackout dates for the season can be found at https://miltonbadmintonclub.org/calendar/.  Note that this calendar can be synced with your gmail account.

Guests are permitted to join as long as there are no less than 6 people waiting.  This was done in order to give our current members more court time!
