A club you can call home
'Tennis club' is one way to think of the Badminton and Racquet Club, but we offer so much more. The B&R is a private athletic and social club in mid-town Toronto, offering tennis, squash, fitness and more.
The B&R is a unique club, with an intimacy not found elsewhere. Known for its personal touch, relaxing and welcoming atmosphere, dedicated staff, excellent facilities, and first class programming; friendships are easily formed which last a lifetime. The Badminton and Racquet Club of Toronto was founded in 1924 by a small group of badminton enthusiasts in a historic former streetcar barn at St. Clair & Yonge St. The Club has since grown to become a preeminent Canadian private racquet, fitness, wellness and social club.
After a devastating fire destroyed the east side of the clubhouse in early 2017, an extensive rebuild plan is underway. While we rebuild a portion of the clubhouse, the B&R continues to provide a quiet oasis from the bustle of day-to-day life. The Club's west side, which houses tennis, squash, fitness, platform tennis, social activities, and casual dining, is now open with badminton scheduled to open in early 2019.
The east side rebuild has provided the Club with a unique opportunity to greatly improve the overall member experience by enhancing our facilities and providing increased accessibility. The east side will house new locker rooms, banquet and catering rooms, casual and fine dining including a bar and three-season patio, a business/homework centre, a second doubles squash court, teens and tween lounges, games room, and finally a redesigned Kidz Korner. All this in one convenient place at Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue. Possibly this may be the Club for you.
