Welcome to the new Arizona Badminton Center (AZBC)!
After years of dreaming and searching we established the first fully dedicated badminton-specific facility in Arizona history opening on February 20, 2012.
Now, more than 2 years later we continue to celebrate having unparalleled badminton play day after day, 7 days a week! We are consistently working to improve our club so that everyone who plays, whether a member or a visitor, has the best possible badminton experience.
Along with lots of hours of Open Play 7 days a week and a fully operational Pro Shop with stringing services and a wide array of rackets and accessories, we also offer Kids Classes, Intro Adult Classes, private lessons, tournaments of all types for all ability levels, and the HL Arizona Badminton Academy.
See the Events and Coaching pages for more details about our current training schedule and up-coming tournaments.
For more than 25 years I have searched for the right building and location for our home. It was no easy thing to find the right combination of building design, dimensions and ceiling height. It has been worth the wait!
Everything has been done with the badminton playing experience in mind-- lighting, special padded wood flooring and floor paint, ceiling and wall background colors, court side benches, a comfortable lobby, Pro Shop and more. We will continue to add features as we grow.
So many have contributed to make this dream possible and it is a thrill to serve all the Arizona badminton community with the very best for friends, family, fitness and training!
Please review the various pages on this website for details concerning the vision and philosophy, membership rates, coaching approach, events and directions to the AZBC.
I look forward to seeing you on the court!
The courts of Hank Anderssohn Hall...
With a lot of hard work we transformed an empty warehouse into a beautiful badminton-specific hall with 4 courts, custom lighting, backdrops, wood flooring, net standards, court side benches, lobby, Pro Shop and more. The overall result is one of the best places to play badminton in the USA.
Come and join in the fun, friendship, family atmosphere, fitness and training!
