Group Lessons

As of June 15, 2021 - private, semi-private and group lessons are all available!

Drive Badminton offers classes for players of all ages and skill levels. Before students are placed into the group lessons of choice, there will be a 10-15 minute assessment with our coach to ensure all the students are placed in the correct classes. Groups will run on a minimum of 3 students and a maximum of 8 students per coach.  In the situation where there are less than 3 students for a group lesson to be started, Drive Badminton will accommodate those students in private classes.
