Clubs & Associations

Clubs & Associations are the backbone of badminton across Australia. By providing a place for people of all abilities to engage and experience badminton they are the heartbeat and are such a critical environment. 

Affiliated badminton clubs are registered as members with their State/Territory Badminton Organisation. and are recognised as being safe, fun and engaging environments for players, helping them build the foundation and fundamental skills, movements and tactics key for success in badminton.

To find a place for you to play you can head to our “Where to play badminton page” or head to your state/territory association to find out more about badminton within your state.

As part of the Badminton Australia High Performance Pathway, Clubs & Associations play a crucial role in the process and movement of young players into competitive badminton and up the pathway. You can read more about the High-Performance Pathway here.
