End of Summer/Beginning of Winter

Our last night of the summer badminton season is this evening.  We are off the last week of September. 

Winter season starts October 4!

Since we have opened up to 9 courts, we have been fortunate enough to expand membership. We will be accepting winter membership fees tonight and during the month of October.  Cost of membership is $250.  More membership info can be found here: https://miltonbadmintonclub.org/membership/.

Guests are always welcomed to play at $10.

A kind reminder to try to keep your games balanced (2xred/2xblue, 4xred, 4xblue) as well as to keep the games moving – no one wants to be waiting for games when there are empty courts!

Looking forward to the new season!

Badminton Updates

Our last night of our Summer Season is September 22, 2016 and our Winter Season starts October 4, 2016.

There are limited membership spots still available for the Winter season.  Please make Wendy or myself aware if you or someone you know is interested in registering.  More information regarding membership can be found here.

Moving forward, the badminton schedule (cancelled nights, etc.) will be posted on our website.  Alternatively, please visit https://miltonbadmintonclub.org/calendar/ to view schedule.  There is also a feature which allows you to sync your Google calendar with the Badminton Calendar posted.

 

The Colour System, The Board System and Friendly Reminders

THE COLOUR SYSTEM

The Summer Session of the Milton Badminton Club has two colour assignments of blue (beginner to intermediate) or red (intermediate to advanced).

  1. The purpose of the colouring system is to facilitate more balanced and competitive games.
  2. The colours represent a player’s current abilities rather than his/her potential.
  3. The colours hold no prestige and are NOT to be used as a status symbol.
  4. New members are assigned the BLUE colour.

THE BOARD SYSTEM

  1. When a name reaches the top of the “Queue”, it is that member’s turn to pick.  Please DO NOT pick on behalf of someone else.
  2. When picking a game, a member must select 3 additional players from the top 10-15 players in the queue.
  3. Pick balanced games (e.g., 4 blue players, 4 red players, 2 red players and 2 blue players).
  4. If a player is picked but would rather wait for a different game, that player’s name falls to the bottom of the queue.

FRIENDLY REMINDERS

  1. All our members are good people!  Please show courtesy and respect on the court.  Don’t forget that we are all here to have fun!
  2. Only ‘pick’ a game if your name is at the top of the queue.  DO NOT pick for someone else.
  3. “Wait 1” and “Wait 2” should be filled at all possible times to ensure as much play time as possible.  Due to our limited facility time, please pick games quickly to avoid leaving any court(s) unattended.

Please forward any questions or concerns to Leanne or Wendy.
