Enjoyable Inaugural Badminton ACT (BACT) Annual Gala Dinner & Awards Night, 4 December 2021

BACT’s first, hopefully of many more, Annual Gala Dinner and Awards Night was held at the Hellenic Club on 4 December 2021.  It was very well attended, with over 80 people representing 10 BACT clubs.  A number of BACT and Club awards were provided.  It was an enjoyable way to end what was a difficult year, with many clubs still not being able to resume their club sessions following the end of the ACT’s lockdown due to public school cleaning issues.

  • Canberra Grammar Badminton Club

    CGS Badminton Club will be closed on the 24th of June 2021.
  • Gungahlin Badminton Club

    The Wednesday sessions at Gungahlin College commence on 12 January 2022.
    The Thursday sessions at Amaroo School commence on 3 February 2022​

    Following the ACT Government's decision to severely limit community access to public schools in 2022 due to COVID19 'cleaning issues', the Gungahlin Badminton Club (GBC) now has a more limited session time at Amaroo School and was only able to open a new session at the smaller, six-court, venue at Gungahlin College. There is a dire lack of suitable and available facilities in which to play badminton in the ACT, particularly the fast-growing Gungahlin region

    Given the size of the club membership in 2021, it has been decided to only offer membership in 2022 to the first sixty of the 2021 members that apply to remain members in 2022 (2021 members have been advised by direct email). The club is thus closed for new memberships and casuals. If this situation changes another Notice will be placed here.
    I would suggest that people interested in playing badminton in Canberra lobby your local politicians for more indoor sports centres (as Badminton ACT is doing).
