Option 1: Join a Club
Don’t want the hassle of hiring your own courts? Join one of the many affiliated / supported Clubs in the Waikato region. There is a club to suit every age, ability and background including those that have never played before. Clubs will accept both casual players and those that wish to become a member. Please enquire with the Club contacts directly to find out where and what days / times of the week their sessions are held. Let us know if you want to set up your own Club!
Option 2: Casual Play & Stadium Account
Casual players are welcome to Drop-In during staffed office hours. Drop-In rate includes free use of rackets and shuttles so no need to spend any money on buying equipment (available during staffed office hours only). Alternatively, get a personal stadium account and enjoy 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year access to a 10 court purpose built facility at the Eastlink Badminton Stadium. Stadium account and court booking requests can be made online under Court Hire.
A personal stadium account can cost as little as $20 per year and hourly court hire rates start from just over $2.50 per person/hour/court (based on 4 people playing) depending on the type of membership you are eligible for (*conditions apply).
There are no ongoing membership charges besides the low annual membership fee as we operate on a “pay to play” basis.
To sign up for a stadium account or hire courts you can also go to www.pay2play.co.nz to find the Waikato Badminton Association venue, or see staff at the Eastlink Badminton Stadium during staffed office hours.
