Founded by a band of 5 self-proclaimed badminton aficionados - we have been bravely playing badminton simply for the love of the sport. At the end of each 2 hour session we are reminded of how woefully out of shape we are but we soldier on for "pain is only weakness leaving the body". Sweat only means you can have that extra serving of dessert. With this inspiration we have grown to 50 full members.
Since our humble beginnings in 2010, Katy Badminton Club continued to function as a non-profit recreational sporting club as our mission has always been to promote the sport of Badminton in the Katy area. Badminton is a sport that can be played by all ages and genders. We would like to get as many people in the greater Houston area playing badminton. With enough interest we hope sign up fearless weekend warriors to play on multiple days in a given week.
What We've Achieved
We found a partner with the British International School of Houston (BISH).
BISH has been gracious enough to lease their badminton courts.
The courts are actually made of a tacky substance that is easy on the knees.
With eight (8) available courts we are able to reserve 2 courts to training kids.
We have made some strong friendships.
Shed blood, sweat and tears on really intense games.
Collectively we would have shed a million calories.
Only to have found the lost calories in delicious desserts at the Mexican restaurant next door.
