    Hi Everyone,

    Seneca College will be hosting a badminton club starting June 9th to August 25. This will be run by the College and their coaching staff. We invite all prospective students and all levels of badminton players to come out to see our venue, play some badminton, and make some friends. This will be a FEATHER only club. Prices and times are now tentative (Free and 8pm-11pm on Thursdays).

    I will provide more details and confirm with everyone later on. We might devote some coaching time for those who want to do some drills (for an hour or so) or learn to play better. I believe we have a total of 10 courts!!!

    The location will be at the Newnham Campus at the corner of Finch and Hwy 404.

    Again, I will update once I have full confirmation of details.

    Thank you!

    Alright, this should be pretty much the final details.

    Start Date: June 9th
    Day/Time: Thursdays 8pm-11pm
    Cost: $5 drop in
    Shuttles: Feather only and provided
    Location: Seneca College Newnham Campus (google it for directions and location of gym)
    Parking: parking is not free (you can take a risk and not pay as i don't think they will check at night and during the summer) or you can park in the residential area south of Finch and walk to gym (5-10mins)

    Some courts will be for people who want to do some drills/skills supervised by Seneca Varsity coaches.

    Is there any idea of what kind of feather shuttles will be provided? Also, does "all levels of badminton players" includes super noobs like myself who plays with the "catching butterfly style"?

    Thanks for the info, few more questions.
    Was parking an issue? You have to take turns to play? Did you have a chance to play with other people other than your friends?
    Sorry for too many questions :)

    My friends parked at the plaza west of the school and walked about 10 mins. to the gym but I parked at the school parking lot next to the building costs me $4.50. There were 10 courts and I practically played all night long with different people every games until the end when my friends and I decided to request to play among ourselves.
