    I recently emailed UTM's athletic department, enquire about their badminton sessions and this is the reply:

    Hi Jason,

    There is scheduled REC Badminton Monday through Friday everyday from 12-1pm in GYM A and every Friday in GYM C from 5-8pm.

    There will be campus rec badminton tournaments on July 11th and July 25th.

    As long as you are a registered summer student, you can access the facilities at no additional charge.

    Hope this info helps.


    So I am curious to know who is currently at UTM or is taking courses at UTM this summer... and those who are coming out to this "no-charge" badminton session.

    Level of play is LOW at UTM. If only there would be stronger players, I would go more. :)

    hi guys,

    i'll be starting at the U of T this september.
    i can't really make out any information in here so i'd appreciate it if one of you could answer my questions :)

    what kind of drop in badminton is available at UTSG? where and when?
    when does the team (the varsity blues i think) start up and how does that work?

    cheers to whoever is kind enough to answer!

    First of all, Welcome to University of Toronto.

    For badminton Court bookings Here the schedule update every week, and they take reservation the day before.

    For recreational club, click on activity and then Sports-Downtown in the left menu. Link HERE

    For varsity Blues, have to sign up and try out during the beginning of term, rather you make it or not is up to you.

    If you want, include where your residence and what program are you in =)

    erm trackone engineering, they don't have it when I apply.
    From people I know that is in engineering, dont think you will have much time for badminton.

    OH wait you're staying on residence, thats a different story. But from what I remember engineers have 3x in class hours, with all those hwk and assignment you have. You can do your own judgment.

    Erm but wondering will they have more girls in Trackone.
