Rules

All Members and Pay-as-you-Play Guests please read the following rules:

OPERATING PROCEDURES

Our club is volunteer-run, not-for-profit and membership driven.

Pay-as-you-play guests may be permitted as space allows and guests must check with the Court Supervisor as to playing opportunities and fees. If permitted, they must sign in and pay before playing. Guests are not entitled to play in tournaments or the club championship.

Always check the notices and on-line schedule before coming out to play on any given night.

Our club is a member of Badminton Ontario and the Western Ontario Badminton Association (WOBA).

ETIQUETTE

Badminton is considered an honour sport and as such, the utmost respect is to be shown to your opponents regardless of skill level. Generally, you compliment a good shot or rally while an uncertain call goes in favour of your opponent. Introduce yourself to start play and shake hands at the end of the game.

ATTIRE

Court type shorts/sweats and a t-shirt are required. A designated pair of indoor court shoes (non-marking sole) must be worn. AT NO TIME SHALL OUTDOOR FOOTWEAR BE WORN INSIDE THE GYM.

All players 18 years of age or younger MUST WEAR APPROVED EYE PROTECTION. Eye protection must conform to ASTM F803. No player who is subject to this rule shall enter the court without eye protection. Players not subject to this rule are also encouraged to wear eye protection.
