    If you're looking for NCAA badminton, you're out of luck. It's not an NCAA sport (anymore). It may be back to become one again, though, at least for women because it's on the NCAA Emerging Sports list.

    There are quite a few schools that have badminton club teams including UofA down here. I don't know what sort of competition schedule they have, however. I'm sure there are other members here who know more about college clubs.

    Just a little useless historical trivia, until its cancellation, Arizona State had the top NCAA program for both men and women. Simply because they were about the only school that gave out scholarships for badminton, so the good players went there. :)

    Are you looking for a local college club to play, or want to attend that college to be in a team? On east coast, quite a few colleges have their club/team, which also held some small local tournies in between them.

    The ones I can see in my head right now are UPenn, Columbia, NYU, BU, Harvard, Yale, MIT, Mansfield, etc... I am sure many other local colleges also have their clubs, but not many are open for public, though. :cool:
