IMPORTANT NOTE: this meetup is on a *Sunday* instead of Saturday!
Upcoming meetups for the Fall semester will be either on Saturday or Sunday, at the same time as before.
We have rented 3 badminton courts at the BU Fitness & Recreation Center (regulation full sized courts). The BU facility is immaculate and a fantastic place to play.
The fee (payable online when you RSVP) gets you into the BU Fitness & Recreation Center to play badminton for an hour and a half. Part of the fee is for the court time and the rest is for your meetup group to cover other expenses, i.e. rackets, shuttlecocks/birdies, meetup.com fees. All fees collected go to pay the Group's expenses.
We have rackets and shuttles for everyone!
Expect to play doubles. The host can help to match up pairs but members are free to join in any game they want. The courts are reserved only for Boston Badminton members. The group is limited to 16 players in order to keep waiting time to a minimum.

Plan to grab a drink locally after if we have interest.
