Welcome to the Whyte Ridge Badminton program.

In the fall of 2020, we launched our first badminton training camp for young players to learn basic skills of the game and to improve what they already know. Our goal was to grow this into a fully developed program that would be offered to everyone.

This time we are happy to announce that the program obtained a larger gym at Ralph Maybank school (10 mins from Whyte Ridge) which is fully equipped for badminton.

The program will again be hosted by Honesto Navarro, a certified coach with many years of experience in various programs offered by the Manitoba Badminton Association and the City of Winnipeg Leisure Guide.
