University of Maryland Badminton Club
Badminton at the University of
Maryland is a student operated and student funded
Membership is open to all
UMCP faculty, staff, students and alumni (this does not
include spouses by CRS rules).
There are quite a few
local badminton clubs if you don't belong to
the UMD community.
The club only plays when classes are in session (fall, spring
and summer, with typically a few weeks break inbetween) and we play in
SPH/North Gym (building 225) where
we have 10 hardwood floor courts.
The university has no fellowships in badminton.
In the spring of 1998 the Eppley Rec Center (ERC) was opened,
which will also have a new
8-court badminton gym. Currently open-rec badminton can normally be played
on Saturdays 7-10pm and
Sunday 10am-2pm on 2 courts (yes, we know, there are 8 courts in this gym,
4 of them brilliantly obstructed by heavy basketball contraptions,
and usually 2 courts can be used for badminton, and 2 for another sport).
You can also play badminton during the
open hours in the ERC
building, but this is not Badminton Club associated.
You might find some of us playing during these hours though.
CRS is also organizing
in which badminton used to be played. Finally, the University
also offers a credited class in badminton
