In the season 2015-2016 the club will have classes in Aurora, Newmarket, and Bradford, Ontario, Canada. We train at schools and community centres.
All classes begin with a warm-up which consists of running, skipping, stretching, racquet games, and other fun and strengthening activities. Warm-up is followed by drills which cover all kinds of badminton shots, footwork, and strategy required in the game.
