About Holy Trinity Badminton Club
In the 2008-2009 season, ODBA started a Sunday Drop-in program using funding provided by the Trillium Fund. Unfortunately, in the 2011-2012 season, the funding ran out.

The program provided the badminton needs in the Kanata and Ottawa area, for a badminton club which could cater to all levels. With funding having run out, the drop-in program's existence was in jeopardy.

So, in the 2012-2013 season, Mike Tran and Eugene Lee, stepped up to continue the program as the Holy Trinity Badminton Club.

The Holy Trinity Badminton Club continues to grow and evolve each year.  The Basic program membership reaches capacity and coaching classes are filled often early in the season. HTBC stands by the strong belief that all demographics - regardless of age, gender, culture, or skill level - should have the opportunity to play badminton.

This season (2014-2015) we plan on continuing to: train juniors in Corey's Coaching Class; offer social and family play in the Basic Membership; and, train highly competitive players in Alan's Boot-minton Camp.  We believe in using some of the revenue generated to donate to good causes - locally and/or non-profit research.

We look forward to another wonderful season and welcome all of the new members joining for the first time!

Environmentally Responsible Club

At Holy Trinity Badminton Club, we strive to be environmentally responsible too.  We reduce waste by encouraging paperless registration by  requesting our members register online.  Also, we don't print posters or newsletters on paper - we send our communications by email.

And, our proudest achievement is recycling 90% of our plastic shuttles by reusing them from our basic program to the coachin
g program.  Not until the shuttles are falling apart do we prepare them for the garbage.

Our next goal is come up with a better way of reusing broken badminton rackets.
