About your court reservation:

  • Court rentals can only be made by SBC members. For group reservations, at least one person must be a member.
  • Reservations can be made in person or by phone. Cancellations require a 24 hour notice.
  • Non-Members are required to pay a $6.00 guest fee in addition to the hourly court rental fee.
Cost: $24 per hour, per court
Court Rental Packages are also available to schools, companies, clubs, and large groups that book on a regular basis:
$525 for 25 hours (save $50.00)

Why pick court rentals over playing drop-in?

Sunridge Badminton Centre (SBC) has 12 indoor courts. Courts 1-6 are devoted to drop-in play, where players rotate regularly and play with other players. Drop-in play is based on availability of courts. On busy nights, we recommend booking a court in order to maximize your playing time. For the duration of your reservation, you have exclusive rights to the court and can choose your own players.

How many people can play on a reserved court?

You may bring as many guests as you would like, but please be aware Non-Members have to pay an additional $8.00 guest fee on top of the hourly court rental fee.

Do I have to wear badminton shoes?

No! Any indoor court shoes that are non-marking and not black-soled will be fine. However, badminton shoes are designed to maximize speed, comfort, and overall performance. Badminton involves footwork which requires sudden stops, explosive jumps, and sideways lateral movement. Badminton shoes provide improved support, allowing for maximal speed and agility while minimizing the chances of injury. To learn more, please visit our pro shop to try our selection of Yonex, Victor, and Apacs badminton shoes.

Why do I have to wear non-marking, non-black soled shoes to play on the courts?

At SBC, we are proud of our professional badminton courts.  Our centre is the only badminton facility in Calgary which uses the 100% PU/PVC floor mats certified by the  Badminton World Federation (BWF).  These kinds of court mats are used in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and in many major BWF tournaments such as China Open, Korea Open, Taipei Open and others.  Unlike the hardwood floors of other sports centers, this type of flooring is the best for playing badminton because it provides good traction, shock absorption, and joint and muscle protection; therefore, there are fewer feet and knee injuries. Black-soled shoes tend to mark up the court surface.  Similar to other professional sports facilities, we do not allow black soled shoes on the courts even though these shoes are labeled as "non-marking". The simple rule is this: shoes cannot have any black colour on the bottom.

Terms and Conditions


Sunridge Badminton Centre members, guests, and coaches must thoroughly review all our rules and regulations before using the SBC facility. These rules and regulations are designed to allow all members to enjoy the new facility in a way that will be safe and productive.

  2. Members that are booking courts must reserve courts in advance prior to playing at the Centre. Reservations can be made by telephone or directly in person at the reception counter.
