Announcing the opening of the new Arizona Badminton Center in Mesa at the NW corner of Dobson and Broadway just off the 101 between the 202 and 60!!! For the first time in Arizona history we have a beautiful, fully dedicated badminton-specific facility open 7 days a week! See the website for complete details.

Welcome to the Arizona Badminton Club website! Since our official founding in 1988, and even years before that, we have dedicated ourselves to promoting the indoor recreational and tournament sport of badminton throughout Arizona (see the tribute to Hank Anderssohn in the history portion of this website). We love badminton players of all ages and abilities, and from all nations. Our great Olympic sport is growing, and more players are participating every week. We have been coordinating an increasing network of places to play including a large base of high school players due to the more than fifty AIA High School Girls Varsity and Junior Varsity teams that have a season in the Fall each year.

In light of all this activity we have added several ABC Board Members. Joining original board members Dick Abbuhl and myself, are Dick Baltimore, Kathy Furtmann, Francis Hartojo, Chin Khor, Darcy McGrane, Doug Towne, and Rob Waters. Together we have more than 200 years of recreational and tournament badminton experience and a combination of professions, knowledge and dedication to serve the sport of badminton in Arizona!

I hope you find this website helpful. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to email me at: Come and check out the new Arizona Badminton Center. We hope to see you on the court!
