Summer Clean-Up

On August 8th, seven members volunteered to do a quick blitz brush clean-up around the outside of the club. The main focus was on the south side of the building where brush and vines were blocking emergency exists. The team also pruned and cleaned up the bushes along the north side of the building as well.

Return to Regular Summer Schedule and Doubles Play

Commencing on Sunday July 26th the club will return to the regular summer schedule with doubles play allowed.  This means reservations are no longer required.

The recent announcement by the Provincial government to move our area to “Phase 3” has relaxed a number of restrictions that allows us to return to normal scheduling.

COVID-19 has not disappeared so we still need to practice social distancing and continue with sanitation processes to keep ourselves safe.

WBC in consultation with Badminton Ontario has decided that the following restrictions will remain in place at the club.

  • Members only – no guests or non members may play.
  • Change room and showers will remain closed
  • The main floor washroom should only be used in an emergency.  Surfaces touched must be sanitized after use.

Members and parents must respect social distancing in the lounge
