Footwear Reminders


Please remember to check your court shoes prior to entering the badminton court area. We have had an increasing number of marks from black soled shoes on the badminton courts in the past month and would greatly appreciate everyone doing their part to keep our courts in great condition for the safety and enjoyment of all Members. Coaching staff will be helping to check shoes in the badminton court area to make sure appropriate footwear is worn.


Court Booking Reminders


Please remember to book your badminton court on GameTime. This is essential for us to track court utilization so we can offer better programs and services to the members and will avoid any risk of you losing your spot on a court. If you need help in booking your court, please don’t hesitate to ask Member Services.
