Club News

After 2 years of playing at the Edina Southview Middle School facility, we were informed that Edina Community Education could no longer support offering Badminton due to conflicts with other programs.

We are thankful for the time we had to play at that great facility but we now need to look for an alternate facility.

We will update this page once we find another location.  In the meantime, keep playing!  There are plenty of other places to play.  Please check http://www.minnesotabadminton.com for other clubs and play times in the area.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Just a reminder we will not be playing the Friday after Thanksgiving since the facility will be closed due to holiday.

Our apologies as well to all who came to South View Middle School on Tuesday and didn’t have a chance to play. The schedule conflict is currently being sorted out and we will update as soon as we can.

Thanks everyone.

Venue Change for Friday 09/14

Attention badminton enthusiasts,

We apologize for the short notice but Edina Community Education has just informed us of a venue change for this Friday, 09/14.
We will be relocated to Gym 3 in South View Middle School.
 
Gym 3 only has 4 courts. To ensure members have adequate playing time, we ask those using punch cards and walk-ins to refrain from coming this Friday.
Sorry for the inconvenience, we will resume regular play at our usual venue the following Tuesday.
Regards,
MNGoodfeathers

Walk-In Rule

One of Goodfeathers goals is to promote the sport of Badminton.  As a rule, we want to be open and encourage walk-in players.  However, the club has to balance this openness with preserving playing time for our regular members.  To this end, on busy nights, the “Walk-in Court” rule may be enforced.

“Walk-In Court” Rules:
    1. Busy nights are defined as regular players waiting more than one turn to play a game.  
    2. When the “Walk-in Court” rule is enforced, 1/2 of the available courts will be defined as Walk-In courts.  Signs will be posted.  This means that walk-in players can only play in those courts*.  Regular members are allowed to play in all the courts
    3. The number of “Walk-in Courts” may be adjusted by the organizers as needed
*Walk-in players may play on regular courts if they are guests of regular members up to a maximum of 2 walk-in players per game.
