The 2021 ACT Junior Championships was very well attended, particularly the U13 age group. The tournament was held at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) for the first time and Badminton ACT (BACT) welcomes the support provided by the AIS for badminton in the ACT.
Congratulations to Canberra’s own Anthony Joe from Northside Club! He is currently part of the Australian Badminton Falcons. A big thank you to the @BadmintonAustralia partners who support this program including @Australian Institute of Sport, @Commonwealth Games Australia, @Li-Ning and @Australian Olympic Team
The President of Badminton ACT, Olaf Schuermann, is pleased to announce the appointment of Messrs Tai Liang Ko and Xing Huong Goh as co-Junior Development Officers for Badminton ACT. The appointments are for one year on a casual, contract, basis. Reflecting the importance of the role, it is the first time that Badminton ACT has appointed people to a paid position.
The ACT Open, originally scheduled for 1-2 May at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS), has necessarily been postponed until 20-21 November (to replace the Brindabella Challenge Cup which has been cancelled for 2021), due to the AIS’s decision not to allow non-Olympic athletes on site ahead of the Olympics.
Membership renewal for 2020 members will occur throughout February. Please see Brideen ASAP for a member form.
Requests from new players to become a 2021 member are currently suspended. We have had an overwhelming number of player requests and have started a wait list for membership. New members will be drawn from this list.
Visitors must contact Brideen (Thursday session - 0410666541) or Aizid (Tuesday session - 0403243007) to check if there are vacancies to play. If sessions are full any visitors who turn up without checking may be turned away.
