With the introduction of the Badminton Canada membership database in the summer of 2016, the information previously located on the website has been deemed redundant. Within the new membership database, each individual Badminton BC member has 24/7/365 access to their own individual profile including their Member ID, Club Affiliation, Membership Type, as well as new information such as Tournament Entries and Rankings.

As a benefit of Badminton BC Individual Membership, each individual member of Badminton BC is assigned a lifetime Badminton BC Membership ID Number. This Member ID takes the form of the alphanumeric BCxxxxx, which is capital letter B, followed by capital letter C, then followed by a 4 or 5 digit number (with no spaces or dashes in between any letters or numbers).
The BC at the beginning of the Membership ID indicates British Columbia, and the 4 or 5 digit number is based on when a member was initially assigned their Member ID by Badminton BC.
For any Badminton BC Membership inquiries, such as individuals gaining access to their individual member profiles, clubs wanting a list of Member ID's for their members, or individual Club Affiliation changes, please contact Badminton BC at 604-385-3595 or email@example.com.
Badminton BC was formed in February 1925.
