Badminton Court Bookings

Badminton courts are set up in the Athletic Centre Upper Gym at various times through the year.

U of T students and members can book badminton, squash, table tennis and tennis courts online at Bookings will only be available online. All members and students have 4-day advance booking, online bookings open at 10pm. All individuals are limited to two bookings per 4-day window.


When you enter the facility, you must ask the staff at the turnstiles to check you in for your court booking.

Scanning your membership or T-card does not check you in for your court automatically. You are expected to be on the court within 10 minutes of the start of your court time to be counted as present. Staff may ask to see your card for spot checks.

All members and students are required to check in for their court bookings at the Athletic Centre equipment counter (at the turnstiles). When scanning your membership/TCard to enter the facility please ask the staff working the counter to check you in on the computer for your court booking. They must press a button on the screen to check you in, it is not automatic!

Individuals who do not check in for their court will be counted as a no-show. Repeated no-shows may result in loss of booking privileges for a period of time. Continued non check-ins will result in longer suspension time periods.

If you have not shown up by 10 minutes past the start time of the booking you forfeit the court. Late arrivals are counted as no-shows.

You must be available on the court during your timeslot, with your T-card. You may be asked to show it for spot checks.
