FAQs

1. Who can join the club?

All BU students can join our club, regardless of experience! Unfortunately, those outside the BU community are not able to join per BU club sports policy. However, if you know a member of the BU badminton club, you can ask them to bring you to a practice! A $12/day/person guest pass will be applicable and can be purchased at the FitRec front desk. Interested visitors can find more information here.

2. Will rackets or shuttlecocks be provided?

Although we strongly recommend that you bring your own rackets, we do have a limited number of badminton rackets for members to borrow. High quality shuttlecocks will be provided by the club.

3. How much are the membership dues? What do they cover?

The membership dues are $40 for recreational members and $50 for tournament team players. Membership dues will be used to cover the shuttlecocks, rackets and other necessary equipment. For tournament team players, the dues cover tournament-related costs such as transportation, registration fees, and hotel accommodations.

4. When/where will practice be held?

We have two practice session per week, both held at FitRec:

  • Friday 7 – 10 PM (FitRec, lower courts 2 & 3)
  • Saturday 11 AM – 1 PM (FitRec, lower courts 2)

The 6-court practice space is divided into two parts– 3 courts are dedicated to the tournament team for training and 3 courts are dedicated to 20-minute rotating recreational play.

5. How do I join the tournament team?

We will be having tryouts for our tournament team during mid-October. Please look out for our emails, as we will be sending out updates very soon.
