Summerland’s Badminton Club may be 100 years old, but the emphasis right now is on youth.

The club, which is open to players of all ages and levels, is starting a junior badminton program. Two businesses have made donations to help.

The Summerland Credit Union has handed over $1,000. The club will be able to offer free memberships for juniors who sign up soon.

Also, Black Knight, a racquet sports supplier, has donated racquets and other equipment to be awarded in draws and other contests.

The 70-member Summerland Badminton Club recently celebrated its 100th birthday. Members play at a hall located at Prairie Valley Road and Wharton Street.

The club is open seven days a week, with various scheduled times for different levels of play.
