    hi

    Hi
    I'm a casual club player. I'm kind of rusty but I would like to improve my game. If you would like to play send me an email at 5yw5@queensu.ca. I don't check these forums very often.
    Anyhow, let me know!

    Does anyone know where the badminton club is now? I know it used to be at the Court and Fitness, but it got closed down because it's being made into a gym.

    Maybe at Field House?

    The former Court and Fitness Club has been purchased by a national fitness club which will not offer badminton. A new and different facility will be available in the fall for both badminton and racquet ball. In the mean time, some of us are playing in primary school gyms on Monday and Thursday nights until mid-April. Google "Regina badminton" and we are listed under Wascana Badminton Club.

    Sorry, i have a lot of questions regarding this :D

    Where is this new facility going to be available?
    When you say Fall, you mean.. Fall 2009 correct?
    Is the Wascana Badminton Club include the coaches at the former Court and Fitness?

    I cannot say where it's going to be because it's not my facility. From what I hear, it will be ready by fall 2009. The Wascana club is a group of players just having some exercise playing badminton, much like the groups at U of R, field house, and several other community associations. The coaches at the former Court and Fitness are geared towards training junior players to compete at a national level. We are not part of them.

    Ah. I see.

    I just talked to my friend today that was part of the Court and Fitness. He said a lot of them played nationally and for Team Sask.

    Do you know anything regarding the badminton course at the Field House?

    I believe the Field House offers lessons in the fall to kids as part of their community program. I don't think they have classes for adults. You can check their website by searching City of Regina.

    I have seen their classes....they say the maximum age is 14.

    However, since i'm fifteen, would that really matter?

    You can always ask when u register but the city course only runs for a few weeks and they only teach the basics. You can also sign up at SBA (google Regina Badminton) in fall 2009 where kids your age can be coached in an organized setting. Only kids that are exceptional will be sponsored to play at national tournaments. The almost-exceptionals can still enjoy the sport locally, play and compete at a provincial level -- and there are lots of them at this level. SBA welcomes all junior players regardless of their current skillset. Only through practice, good work ethics, and sparring with peers will you improve. You can visit the Regina junior tournament in April 2009 to check out the quality of play. The schools are also starting their badminton season right now.

    Haha nice. I'm playing in the Junior Tournament...i think. Last year i played for Riffel, and sadly, we tied with Sheldon for third in Men's doubles.

    The final SBA junior tournament has moved from Regina to Saskatoon this year (2009). Plan to train and play with them this fall. They also have camps in the summer that u can attend. Check their website for info.

    The school tournaments would be the last ones unless u plan to go to the regionals and provincial to play and/or watch. Do plan to participate in the SBA summer camp. It's good for the experience.

    I just found out yesterday that Riffel will be hosting a Junior Tournament this year. Woo :D

    Where is the SBA summer camp held? Is it for people of all ages/skill level?

    Also, do you have any links giving details about the new badminton facility opening up in Fall? I've been quite interested for a while, and all i can find is the "Cooperators Centre"
