History

The Woodstock Badminton Club (WBC) was the first recreational club in Woodstock established in the early 1900’s. It has a long history of fun, fitness and building friendships that last a lifetime. Originally a private club, the WBC converted to a Non-Profit Corporation in the 1970’s to help expand its membership base, promote the sport of badminton and provide access to the community of Woodstock and, by extension, Oxford County.
