Badminton is one of the racquet games in the Club and it has grown over the years in leaps and bounds. The story of Badminton Section in Ikoyi Club 1938 is that of unprecedented success in facility and membership.
Beyond the regular sporting activities and tournaments, the Section has in recent time balanced the equation of total recreation by introducing another dimension in the social life for members through the regular “Groove Nites”, “Thank God It’s Friday”, “Monthly Birthday Bash” and “Social Sundays”. This has tremendously improved the patronage in the Section.
The Club boasts of 3 Badminton indoor courts in an air-conditioned hall with a viewing gallery capable of sitting 300 spectators.
The section’s bar and sitting area is a “Wireless Hotspot”. This has made it possible and convenient for members to connect to the internet for both business and fun.
The Section is on the verge of installing some electronic games for the junior members. This will make them have better feel of the section outside the regular junior coaching clinics usually organized for them during their holidays.
The section opens 3.00pm daily and closes late into the night.
