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, the B&R continues to provide a quiet oasis from the bustle of day-to-day life. The newly renovated west side is now the centre of the Club. Sports are fully operational, including tennis, squash, platform tennis, badminton, pickleball and fitness, as well as locker facilities, casual dining, social activities, bridge and kids program.
Our new clubhouse is slated to re-open summer of 2020. Consider membership today as entrance fees will be increasing May 1, 2020. New membership applications are being accepted to join the WAIT LIST at 2019 entrance fee rates until April 30.
The sooner you join the wait list, the sooner you'll enjoy the fabulous new facilities.
