Policies

Playing Times
Playing times and locations can be found on our About Us page.

Please do not come any earlier than the scheduled times. Also, all players must be out of the school ten minutes before the end time (this gives the custodians time to secure the building and be out at their scheduled times). If we violate either of these rules, the club's gymnasium privileges may be revoked and everybody loses.

Saturday's are family day where members can bring their children to play if they wish (with a family membership). Only adult players (17 or older) will be allowed to play on Tuesdays or Fridays.


Scoring
We play the (not-so) new 21-point rally system as defined by the IBF and Badminton Canada. You can find more details about it here.


Drop Ins
Drops ins are welcome and will be charged a fee (fee information can be found on our About Us page). Due to overcrowding and only have 3 courts, no drop-ins will be allowed on Tuesdays.


Dealing With Crowded Nights
When the gym is very crowded the following system will be implemented:
  • If there are 12 or more people waiting to play, play will immediately (including existing games) change to 1 game to 21 points (rally system) with no set.
  • A whiteboard/notepad will be provided in which people not currently playing will list their names.
  • The top 4 players on the list will play in the next available court and remove their names.
  • Members not wishing to play when their turn comes up have the option to decline their turn, and must place their name at the bottom of the list.
