    I think it's cool how you are coming up with new ways of making badminton a bit more exciting. From food drives, to Soli-Bad, to contests and raffles. Or maybe that's me being a noob cuz I don't get out much to experience that at the other courts in the Lower Mainland.

    Keep up the good work.

    Default Fringe Sports Increase in Global Popularity

    http://thelasource.com/en/2013/02/18...al-popularity/

    When North Vancouver’s Anna Rice reached the round of 16 in female singles badminton at the 2008 Summer Olympics, she became the first North American ever to do so.
    Badminton and rugby are sports that have remained largely under the radar in Vancouver and the rest of Canada despite their huge international profile and their long history in British Columbia.
    While badminton is extremely popular internationally – it is the second most played sport in the world, behind only soccer – it has traditionally been just a fringe sport in Canada.
    However, particularly in Vancouver and the rest of British Columbia, there are signs that this trend is changing. A key factor in the growing success of badminton and other former fringe sports is the increasing participation among all sections of the population, not just the cultures and people that traditionally play them.
    Rice, a five-time Canadian national badminton champion and two-time Olympian, has seen first-hand the sport’s global popularity, especially in Asian countries such as China, India and Indonesia. The men’s singles badminton final had the second highest viewership of any event at the 2012 Olympics. However, Rice, who now serves as head coach of Badminton Vancouver, has also witnessed the growth of the sport among different communities in the city.
    “With Vancouver being so multicultural and having such a strong Asian influence, it’s just a natural fit that we’re becoming one of the badminton hotbeds in North America,” says Rice. “But at Badminton Vancouver we really embrace diversity and try to welcome people from as many different backgrounds and actually use that as an appeal. You can meet people from all different walks of life and cultures and yet you’re all connecting through this sport.”
    The growing number of badminton tournaments being played in Canada and scholarships being offered by Canadian universities are providing more options for those who wish to play the sport competitively. However, Rice emphasizes the benefits of badminton for everyone and believes that the sport’s accessibility is largely responsible for its growth. She cites in particular the number of young girls who may not participate in other sports but are drawn to badminton.
    “It’s a less intimidating sport. Even if you don’t have amazing athletic skills, you can still be good at it in other ways. What’s so special about badminton is that you can enjoy it on so many levels. It’s one of the few sports where a five year old can go out and play with their grandparents,” says Rice.

    I have a question about your drop-in sessions. For the weekends all day pass, the website states that it's either 15 min. or 1 game rotation. What do you guys mean by that? How about court rental taking priority? Does that mean it's possible I won't be playing at all if all the courts are rented out? I haven't played at BV before, but I'm thinking of giving you guys a shot!

    What it means is that during a busy dropin session, you're limited to playing a doubles and 1 game before rotating off to the next players on the waiting list. Your time during busy times is limited to one game or 15 minutes (if you just want to rally). This makes for a fast and efficient rotation system. During busy times, the front desk staff will run a rotation. Badminton Vancouver maintains a number of dedicated drop in courts at all times of the day. You can drop in at Badminton Vancouver at any time.

    If you want to drop in at BV by yourself, just inform the front desk staff and they'll be happy to find you a game. Hope that helps!
