Passionate About Racquets

At the B&R, we have a passion for racquet sports including badminton, pickleball, platform tennis, squash, table tennis, and tennis. With a rich tradition since 1924, as one of Canada's premier clubs, the B&R has been home to provincial, national, and international champions.

Whether for friendly social play or higher competition, the B&R offers a complete suite of services in each sport to maximize your play and meet fellow skill-level players:

  • Top team of professionals 
  • Group and private lessons
  • House leagues, ladders and tournaments
  • Computerized court booking
  • Summer and holiday camps for younger members and non-members

  • Badminton
    • With national standard courts, the badminton hall remains the historic centre of the Club.

      Badminton launched the B&R in 1924 and the Club has since produced numerous champions and top players, up to Olympic level. A challenging and fun game for all that requires quick reflexes and good footwork, it's also a great way for kids to develop their racquet skills, as many members did in their early years on our famous courts.

      It's easy to get court time, so give it a try.

  • Pickleball
    • A fun game the whole family can play.  It slowly mad its way to Canada and now it’s the fastest-growing sport that is enjoyed by all age groups.  

  • Platform Tennis
    • Enjoy excitement and fresh air year-round with two platform tennis courts.

      The B&R is the only downtown club to offer this exciting and unique game. Played in a smaller, specially fenced-in court, the only year-round outdoor racquet sport provides an excellent workout in the cooler months. It's easy to learn and any racquet experience will have you up to speed in no time.

  • Squash
    • Four international squash courts and one doubles squash court have hosted many historic events.

      Our squash section provides a broad range of playing levels for adults and juniors as well as a strong sense of camaraderie. With four singles international courts and a doubles court, you can find just the game you are looking for. Our Club has been home to numerous Canadian, U.S.A., and world squash champions.

  • Table Tennis
    • The B&R is the home of many different racquet sports so it stands to reason that Table Tennis should be a part of the family.  

      Since space at the Club is at a premium, we use a combination of the Badminton Hall and the fitness studios for Table Tennis casual play. Come join in and try this fun and fast-paced racquet sport.    

  • Tennis
    • The B&R's four sunny Har-Tru clay tennis courts with their towering wall of ivy are a favourite place to play. These courts are bubbled in the winter to provide year-round play and two indoor hard surface courts are nearby at Upper Canada College.

      Our experienced and certified coaching staff facilitates a range of recreational and competitive programs, clinics and lessons for adults and juniors. The B&R hosts tournaments, events, and special trips to provide a truly unique tennis experience.
