Shaker Badminton Club is a private, non-profit club that strives to provide a fun and safe place for adults and talented teenagers (16 years old and above) to enjoy playing semi-competitive to competitive
badminton. Sorry, no lessons available for kids. The club leaders are volunteers. It is one of the oldest clubs in the U.S., first established in the 1930s. The club plays in the main gym of Woodbury Elementary School in Shaker Heights, Ohio. The gym has 3 courts on a wooden floor and a high ceiling.

Before coming to the club, all new players and players not on our contact list MUST:
1) Read through this website, in particular the club rules.
2) Email dbcumming@gmail.com and flow.flutes@aol.com providing your phone number.
3) Fill out the questionnaire SBC sends you and send it back.
4) Receive an invitation to play for 1 night on a trial basis.
5) Make a reservation to play via the link SBC sends you.
6) Sign and turn in a liability waiver before playing for the first time.

All players must agree to follow the badminton rules, the club rules and the Zero Tolerance Policy of the city of Shaker Heights, and to respect the authority of the club leaders.

Since there are only 3 courts available for 1.75-3.5 hours per week, court time and space are limited. We prefer intermediate to advanced level players who know the badminton rules and have previous indoor badminton playing experience.

Athletic attire and footwear are required. Playing shoes must be carried into the gym to avoid tracking outside dirt onto the gym floor. Players bring their own rackets. The club supplies top grade feather shuttles at no extra cost. Racket stringing & gripping service available.

Visitors who do not play are welcome, but must show proof of being fully vaccinatedPrint the Location & Directions page. Without it you will get lost. GPS will only take you to the front of the Woodbury School building with no apparent place to park or any indication of which door to enter.

We look forward to having you play with us!
