Another successful Interclub competition on 27th March 2021

The success of this style of club teams event highlights that many ACT clubs welcome the atmosphere of such a social, club-versus-club, competition. Eight clubs (over half of the total number of ACTBA affiliated clubs) put in 28 teams across all four grades, with 126 players participating.  What was particularly pleasing to see was the number of younger children participating; indeed the ACTBA Committee has decided that the next InterClub (tentatively scheduled for early October) will see an ‘E’ Grade (‘E’ for enthusiastic) which will limited to U13s and so enable a much fairer competition for these youngsters. Great work by Sheehan and the tournament team in making this a successful event now embedded in the ACTBA calendar. For details on the tournament please see the tournament link.

  • Aspire Badminton Club

    Aspire Badminton Club sessions at CGS school hall will be closed for 2021 until further notice due to the School's decision not to accept community hirers of their sports hall. Sessions at Kaleen will continue.
  • Canberra Grammar Badminton Club

    CGS Badminton Club will be closed for 2021 until further notice due to the School's decision not to accept community hirers of their sports hall.
  • Gungahlin Badminton Club

    The Gungahlin Badminton Club (GBC) has transferred management for the Tuesday session at Gungahlin College to the new Young Dragon Badminton Club.

    No badminton Thursday, 25 March

    Due to exceptional demand to play badminton and the lack of suitable and available venues, the GBC was simply inundated with people wishing to join the club in 2021. The initial limit of 65 members was filled during the very first session of the year and there is already a Wait List comprising yet another 60 people wishing to join. While a few more people may be allowed to join over the coming weeks once we see the numbers attending each session, it is highly unlikely that all the people currently on the Wait List will be offered membership during the year. As such, along with membership of the club, the Wait List is now also closed to avoid disappointment. A notice will be placed here were either to reopen.

    I would suggest that people interested in playing badminton in Canberra lobby your local politicians for more indoor sports centres (as the ACTBA is doing).

    First session for 2021 on Monday, 11 January.
    Last session for 2021 on Thursday, 16 December
