ARIZONA COLLEGIATE BADMINTON LEAGUE!
In the fall of 2019 the new ACBL was born! The primary inspiration is the advent of BADMINTON SCHOLARSHIP opportunities started by Benedictine University Mesa and Arizona Christian University in Glendale. Other Arizona colleges are also beginning the process for offering badminton scholarships, and several university and community college badminton club teams are also participating in the ACBL competition. The first regular season was planned in the Fall of 2021, however with COVID much of the momentum was lost. Now there are new efforts to regain an active collegiate participation throughout Arizona-- ACU, ASU, UofA, NAU, Grand Canyon and other Junior Colleges and universities are beginning to compete. We will have more to report in 2023 as participation is rejuvenating. More details to come!
Guy Chadwick is the founder and acting Commissioner of the ACBL.
