Badminton has been a part of the Manitoba Winter Games (MWG) for a long time and the tradition will continue in 2018.

Athletes participating in Manitoba Winter Games Powered by MB Hydro are identified for further competitive opportunities with Badminton Manitoba.

Each Region will have it's own specific development and qualification process.  Please check the Manitoba Winter Games Badminton website for more info on your regional tryouts and training opportunities.

New to the 2018 MWG Badminton Competition is the Team Competition.  Team competition is a large part of the international badminton scene and brings many benefits such as teamwork, camaraderie and excitement.  Team Competition is the basis of competition for the Western Canadian Team Championships, Canada Winter Games and some international events such as Thomas and Uber Cups.  We wanted to align our Power Smart Manitoba Winter Games with these competitions so that athletes at our developmental level can also feel like the pros!
