TDBA 2023-24 Affiliation: Welcome to a new season!
I just wanted to let you know that Badminton Ontario has changed their membership platform this year and has eliminated playerweb.
TDBA's affiliation form for this season which is valid from September 1, 2023 - August 31, 2024. If you wish to affiliate, please fill it out completely and email it back to me. You can find payment information at the top of the form. I will inform Badminton Ontario of your affiliation once I have received the completed form along with payment.
Here are the steps clubs need to do in order to affiliate.
The club affiliates with TDBA for $75.00.
Then the club affiliates with Badminton Ontario 2 ways:
1. as an insured club (general commercial liability for the club & sports accident for the individual), the club pays $7.00/individual
2. as an affiliated club (no insurance): flat rate depending on the number of players the club has (e.g., 0-50 members $50, 51-100 members $150, etc.)
The individuals who play in tournaments then need to purchase a BON membership on their own. Please see BON's website for more details. https://www.badmintonontario.ca/membership/
