Western Suburbs Badminton Association is proud to be celebrating its 75th Birthday and the 25th year of the Altona Badminton Centre.
Footscray Churches Badminton Association was formed in March 1935 and at its Annual Meeting in April 1936, it was resolved to change the name to Footscray & Williamstown District Badminton Association. In 1985, Western Suburbs Badminton Association became incorporated when the Altona Badminton Centre was opened.
Thanks to meticulous record keeping, we have results back to 1935. These results, along with other historical information will be published in a book and available at our Birthday Celebrations.
History shows that our Association was and still is at the forefront of Badminton in Australia, the Umpires Association was born in the West in 1967 and is now known as the Court Officials Committee. We are the largest affiliated Association in Australia and our Junior Development Program is a world first.
Our Junior Development Squad will be training during the morning which will give you the opportunity to see them at work.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, we invite you and other members you may still keep in touch with to join us an at an informal function at the Altona Badminton Centre Paisley Park, Mason Street, Altona North (Melways 55 D3) on Sunday 27th February at 11.00am, to be followed by a light lunch.
An rsvp by the 18th February would be appreciated to assist with catering.
