YMCA provides a number of different options to play Badminton at our facilities from social sports, casual court hire and also access at the Doncaster Badminton Centre.

Social Sports

Social Sports sessions open to all players of all abilities. We are currently using Aeroplane Green Shuttles for our sessions; you are welcome to bring your own. If our courts fill then we run court rotations every 15 minutes so that everyone has the ability to play. We provide shuttles every few rotations. YMCA Manningham also provides a Senior Sports Program which is for all members of the public aged 50 years or more. The aim of this program is for customers to enjoy the fitness, health and social benefits of participating in sports activities including badminton and table tennis..

Please bring your own racquet, however we do have spares if you forget or do not own a racquet.

$5 per player for social sessions
You may also purchase shuttles from our kiosk.

Donvale Indoor Sports Centre 360 Springvale Road, Donvale, 3111.
