Whether active player, new to it all, or enjoyed the game half a life-time ago: The OBA is here to help you get started. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, contact us.

I’m interested in having a go, and have never played before. I don’t have shuttles or a racquet.
Club night is for you! From April to September, there is an easy, non-committal way to have a go. For club contact information, select Club from the menu above. All clubs welcome new members. Bring trainers with non-marking soles and a water bottle!

If you would like to start with coaching sessions – great idea! See here for contact details of coaches in Otago.

I’ve played before and want to get into it!
Same as above, club night is for you! If you’re interested in challenging yourself, give Interclub and Summer Club a go. We call both ‘competitive’ events, but they are open to players of all levels. See here¬†for more information.

I’m an experienced player looking for people to have competitive games with.
The OBA runs a number of competitive events in Dunedin. The main interclub season runs from May to September. For more information, see here. Outside this season, the Junior committee runs the popular Summer Club.

Outside Dunedin, competitive play is organised between clubs. Contact them for more information.

I’ve got the gear, and people to play with, but don’t know where to go!
If in Dunedin, the Otago Badminton Centre is available to you 24/7, even if you’re only a visitor to the town. See here for more information.

All clubs in the region welcome new members. Likewise, the Interclub and Summer Club events always make room for new faces.
