As a way to introduce new-comers to the sport and help provide some structure to their games, we are pleased to announce a short course "badminton 101". This course will run for 5 consecutive weeks on Mondays from 6 - 8 pm, starting Monday August 10 - September 14.
The lessons will be delivered in a small group of up to 8 players. The cost is $30/person for the entire 5 week course.
If you are interested, please let us know as soon as possible by email, Facebook, or in person.
As per our previous announcement, there will be a few changes to our procedures/protocols aimed at keeping everyone safe starting Wed July 22nd.
The first is a new digital/online attendance form. Everyone is expected to fill out an attendance sheet using their phone. Upon arrival at the hall, please look for a printed notice containing a QR code that will lead you to the online form. All iPhones starting with the 5S running iOS 11 or newer, as well as most Android based devices from the last 5 years running Android Oreo have a QR code reader built into the camera app. If not, there are plenty of free QR code readers available on the App Store or Play Store.
A hand sanitising station will be available at the entry to the hall. Please sanitise your hands as soon as you see the station.
We will be trialling EFTPOS payments. As a backup, please also have exact change with you. As the EFTPOS machine requires an operator, we will be taking payments at dedicated times during the session.
There will be changes to seating arrangement in order to promote social distancing in the hall.
Lastly, we are looking for volunteers to help set up and pack up after each session. We are required to wipe down and disinfect all surfaces after use. Ideally we would like to setup a roster of helpers that can come early or stay later to help the Committee with various tasks pre and post session. If you can make yourself available on a semi-regular basis, please let us know by email.
Dear members, players & friends,
We thank you for your patience. It is with great pleasure that we announce the reboot of our community sport. Our sessions at Gosford (Henry Kendall HS) will resume Wednesday, July 22nd.
We still have a long way to go in dealing with COVID-19 and it is important that we each play our part in keeping all community members safe. Please ensure that you are aware of and abide by current Public Health Orders and adhere to any COVID-Safe plans.
We will be introducing and implementing several new protocols / procedures aimed at creating a safer environment for all. More details to come closer to our first session.
Due to the closure of the Niagara Park Stadium until the end of April, we will be standing down all badminton sessions and activities effective immediately until further notice.
We will reassess the situation towards the end of April.
Until then, please stay safe and follow the advice from relevant health authorities.
We’ve just received a notice from Henry Kendall High School. In an effort to impede the spread of COVID-19, the Dept. of Education has decided to suspend community usage of school facilities.
This means we are forced to suspend all social sessions at Henry Kendall HS until further notice.
The Committee is urgently investigating alternate venues.
