Badminton is an extremely popular sport that is both energetic and lively as well as extremely accommodating for players of all abilities. The Cairns Badminton Club Inc. has been providing the opportunity for residents of Cairns and the surrounding areas to play Badminton socially and competitively since the 1990’s.
The Cairns Badminton Club Inc. is a not-for-profit sporting association that is officially affiliated with the Queensland Badminton Association Inc. This means that all of our time, effort and revenue go towards promoting the club for the benefit of the players themselves.
Badminton has been an Olympic sport since 1992, and lately it has experienced a resurgence in popularity. Some credit this resurgence to the fun nature of the game itself, others credit the fact that playing Badminton is great for fitness and helps to promote speed, agility, power and finesse, while others believe the inclusive nature and multicultural environment that is created is paramount to it’s popularity.
Whatever the case, there is no denying that Badminton is a great sport for keeping fit, meeting friends from diverse backgrounds and having fun at the same time. We encourage players from any background and any skill level, even if you have never even picked up a racquet before to come along to one of our social sessions.
