The IBC season starts Monday, September 10, 2018. Returning members have until end of play on Friday, September 21, 2018 to renew their membership. If IBC has not yet reached capacity, the new member draw will occur on Monday, September 24, 2018 between 6:15pm-6:45pm at W.P. Wagner High School. This page will be updated on Saturday, September 22, 2018 to confirm whether a draw will occur.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a Waiting List for prospective new members?
No, there is no waiting list. If you would like to join, please attend the draw (if applicable this year).

I would like to drop-in play at IBC prior to the draw. Is this possible?
Drop-in play is not permitted unless announced on the drop-in page, usually half way through the badminton season. If you would like to pop by to observe the level of play, please email us.

If there is a draw, when will the draw take place?
Each year, returning IBC members have approximately 2 weeks from the first date of play to renew their membership for the season.

New membership(s) will be granted to those whose names are drawn, until our membership cap is reached.
