Although this badminton
club was officially established in January 2005, its history goes back more than
a dozen years. It started with a group of friends who were particularly
passionate about playing badminton in the late 80's and early 90's. We were U of
M students, so we had a chance to play the sport year-round in the main campus'
gym. We kept up our sporadic get-togethers and competed with other clubs around
the Twin Cities.
In January 2005, we
unexpectedly met some skilled players from various age groups and different
walks of life who shared the same interest in the sport. That's when the idea of
forming an official club was born.
Currently, we have a
number of committed members who practice on a regular basis (please see our
schedule). We hope,
through our collaboration on the internet, we will be able to gather many more
players--regardless of skill levels, ages, backgrounds--because we strongly
believe in the end it will benefit everyone. There is no cost involved, except
the cost of shuttlecocks, but the benefit to your physical health is beyond
measure, not to mention it's extremely fun and addictive.
We feel that newcomers
who visit our weekly get-together will feel the enthusiasm and passion our
members have for the game. We know that everyone who joins our club will not
only reap huge benefits on the courts, but will also feel the camaraderie,
friendliness and respect we have for everyone..
