Our History
Formerly known as the Phoenix Badminton Club and the Valley Badminton Club, the Arizona Badminton Club (a member of USA Badminton) was founded in early 1980's to introduce and promote the sport of badminton to the Phoenix community.

Club members meet every Tuesday night at the Independence High School gym to play pick-up games and exchange badminton information. Members are required to bring their own equipment (i.e., racquets and shuttlecocks) to participate in games. The club hosts two annual open tournaments: the Grand Canyon State Games in the summer and the Arizona Smash Bash Doubles Tournament in the fall.

On May 21, 2005, we lost our beloved founder and most enthusiastic supporter. Henry "Hank" Anders Anderssohn Jr. passed away peacefully with his family and friends at his bedside. He remained committed to promoting badminton in Arizona until the end. We will miss his guidance, leadership and friendship terribly.
