Registered Drop-In Badminton

Booking Badminton 

A spot on a badminton court may be booked online at recreation.utoronto.ca. Due to facility capacity restrictions in place as part of the university's COVID-19 safety measures you may not book a court to play on. Instead individuals will book a 45 minute spot to play on one of 3 courts. All games will be 1x1 to ensure proper social distancing. Only those that have registered will be allowed into the facility and spots cannot be held for others. There is no guarantee that you will be able to play against specific individuals. Facilitators will be on-site to help set up games. 

Check-in Procedures

When you arrive at the Athletic Centre please enter via Classic Avenue doors. There is a registration table set up that you will check in for your badminton spot at. Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes before your badminton booking is. You must also complete the COVID-19 self assessment on the same day as your visit, but completed prior to coming to the facility. Please see below for more details. 

Court cancellations

If you have booked a spot and can no longer attend your booking, please cancel it as far in advance as possible at recreation.utoronto.ca.  Detailed instructions are available below.  Please be considerate of others; cancelling your booking as far in advance as possible allows others to book and use the courts.
