—Do you know badminton is the fastest racquet sport in the world?
According to the Guinness Book of Records, the badminton shuttle reached 162 mph during a smash compared to squash's 151 mph and 138 mph for tennis.
We are a diverse group of fun-loving and friendly people who meet every Thursday night for a common interest—badminton. Most of our members are intermediate level players; however, we welcome players at all ages and levels to join us.
We play Thursdays from 6–8:45 PM at the Gwendolyn Coffield Community Center. Since this is a Montgomery County facility, you are required to purchase the 1 Year Rec Gym Rat Membership—Adult 18+: $30/year (Montgomery County resident), $45/year (Non-county resident, resident of Rockville and Gaithersburg). This pass can be used at any Montgomery County Community Centers.
You can purchase the membership online at the link below or at any Montgomery County Recreation Centers. I suggest you come check us out first before committing to the yearly membership.
