Badminton Court Maintenance


As we would all like to keep the Badminton Courts in their best possible condition for the safety and enjoyment of all Members to use, please remember the following rules and etiquette when entering the Badminton Court area:

  1. Outdoor footwear is to be removed and kept outside the badminton hall. Please note that there is a new shoe rack just outside the entrance to court one. Outdoor footwear can be placed here or on the mats underneath our bulletin boards.

  2. Only indoor, non-marking and designated court shoes are permitted on the Badminton Courts. Please note that many running shoes have marking soles and will not be permitted on the Badminton Courts. Absolutely no black soles, flip flops, sandals, dress shoes, or high-heels are permitted.

  3. Proper footwear and athletic attire is mandatory when using the Badminton Courts. Bare feet and socks will not be permitted on court.

    An example of what to wear to enjoy your badminton games/play:
    1. Indoor, designated court shoes for badminton. Indoor, non-marking training shoes are also permitted.

    2. T-shirts, tank tops, collared shirts, warm-up sweatshirt or jacket.

    3. Shorts/track pants, sport skirts, skorts, or dresses.

  4. Please tidy up your court and put any used shuttles back in the baskets beside the posts. Please use the indoor dry mops to sweep your courts when you are finished playing.

  5. Absolutely no food is permitted on court. Only water bottles or closed liquid containers will be permitted in the area.  Exceptions are permitted for special events only where the floor has been covered.

 
*Note: If you are unsure about the footwear you should be using on the Badminton Courts, please feel welcome to ask one of our experienced Badminton Professionals as they can answer your questions and make any recommendations. We will have some footwear available for sale on our Yonex demo day, September 15 from 7:30-10pm. Please stop by the Badminton Courts!
