About Our Club

The Hillcrest Badminton Club has been operating in Ottawa for over 30 years. We provide a friendly environment for exercise and competition for players of various ages and skill levels.

Play is on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 19:00 to 22:00. All games are doubles, unless numbers permit otherwise. A game wheel is used to ensure that everyone has a fair share of court time and to vary the pairings from game to game. We supply the yellow Yonex Mavis 300 brand of shuttle.

We use the 21-point scoring system.

Club Location

We use the well-lit 4-court gym at Hillcrest High School, 1900 Dauphin Road.

The school is in the Alta Vista area of Ottawa, just off of Smyth Road.

Parking is on the north side of Hillcrest High School, facing Smyth road.

We play in the upper, large gymnasium. Members must use the main entrance of the school, facing Dauphin.
