The Teen Badminton Club began in the Fall of 2016 at Beaconsfield High School as a pilot teen project within the Lac St-Louis Regional Badminton Association to help give TEENS a place to play once a week with a trained badminton coach present. In the winter of 2017, a second location was added in NDG, Montreal.
In its 2nd year, 2017-18, the Teen Badminton Club (TBC) was officially BORN, becoming an independent non-profit incorporation registered with the Province of Quebec. We have board members, a director general & multiple coaches.
