Low cost, high quality group badminton lessons in Winnipeg. Develop the skills and physical literacy required to become a better badminton player,
make friends, gain a love for the sport and most importantly, have fun! 

Lessons run once a week from October to March and are for children from Grades 3-12. 


Optional League Play
Players in DWP will benefit from the opportunity to take part in a soft competition, which is an introduction to competition without the pressure of
prizes and placements. Athletes will get to attend one of four soft competition dates throughout the season.  Players must register with their coach in
order to participate.  Players are required to attend the sessions that they are registered for.

Whereas the DWP weekly sessions are primarily for skill development and not for game play, at the League Play players will be mixed into pools
with players from different programs in an opportunity to play some actual badminton matches. This league gives athletes the opportunity
to put their skills to practice. Please ask your child's coach for the  League play dates.
