Fall 2015 Announcements

Hello everyone!

We hope that you had a restful summer break and are ready for the upcoming semester! We are going to send out emails soon. If you do not get our email, please email us at so that we can add you to the mailing list. We have a few announcements before the semester starts.

1. Membership Dues:

Every semester the club needs to charge membership fee in order to pay for the birds and rackets. It will be $30 for the semester for all the members, and it should be paid online ONLY. We will provide a link for the membership due when it is ready, as well as t-shirts for anyone interested. Those who has paid will be added to our roster for the fall semester. We will strictly execute the rules and allow no exceptions after two weeks practices. Anyone does not pay the membership fee after the deadline will not be permitted to play.

2. Guest policy:

Each member can bring two guests once a semester for free. After that each guest must be accompanied by a member and pay $5 to the club online.

3. Practice Schedule:

Both practices are in lower courts 2 and 3 of FitRec.

Friday 7 – 10 PM

Saturday 11 AM – 2 PM

4. Club Positions For Next Year:

We are looking for potential candidates to help run the BU Badminton Club right now and invite anyone interested to talk to us either in person or send us an email. We will be picking people soon after the semester starts and will announce the results when the positions have been filled.

5. Tournaments:

We are looking for people who are interested in representing BU in intercollegiate tournaments. If we have enough people that sign up, we can compete at tournaments and make a name for ourselves.

First practice is on Friday September 5, 2015. We will NOT have practice on Saturday (September 6) because of the splash. We look forward to seeing you there. You do not have to pay the membership fee by then, since we do not have the link prepared yet! We provide birds and racquets. Just look out for our emails for the membership fee and the t-shirt sale.

We look forward to seeing you on the courts!

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. Do I need to bring racquets or shoes?

No. It is strongly recommended, because there are limited racquets and the badminton shoes will definitely enhance your badminton experience.

2. Are there tryouts?

No. Anyone is free to join the club and become a member (after fee is taken care of). A small try-out may be held for new players interested in joining our tournament team to see where they would fit best.

3. Is there training?

Only for the non-recreational players. There are usually two sections to the badminton practice – 3 courts are dedicated to training and 3 courts are dedicated to 20-minute rotating recreational play.
