E Badminton Training Centre's initial venues were rented school gyms, but it eventually grew to occupy its current 9 court, state of the art badminton facility in Markham, Ontario. We approach badminton with the community in mind by fostering team work through hosting and participating in various events throughout the season, including several non-badminton related activities. Our multi-dimensional training strategy focuses not only on physical skill, but also on the importance of confidence, team work, focus, and work ethic. Our goal is to contribute to the healthy athletic and personal development of our athletes to ensure a healthy and happy lifestyle.
