General safety and conduct

To ensure safe enjoyment of badminton by all members, Club members are expected to adhere to the following:

Courtesy please
In general, be considerate to your fellow players. Accept games with lower calibre players so they learn to improve too. Don't be afraid/timid to ask someone to play with you.
Sportsmanship
No one likes a sore loser. Members are expected to shake hands unconditionally at the end of every game. Without Exception.
Walking between courts
Please be aware of games in progress when you are walking by or between the courts.Wait until the rally is finished.
Calling lines
If you're in doubt as to whether the bird is in, on the line, or out, you should call it in favour of your opponent. Be courteous and accept line calls in the spirit that most players offer them: honestly.
Kids
Parents are advised to keep the little ones out of the Badminton court at all times to avoid any accidents.

Events overview

For the benefit of all club members, the club organises club events throughout the calendar year.

Tournaments
FilBCS generally holds 4 tournaments per year. Three tournaments are allocated for internal club tournaments. Once a year we hold an interstate competition against our Melbourne counterparts. Tournaments are arranged by the programs committee and a variety of formats are utilised.
Family Day
We are first and foremost a family friendly club. In this regard, the club organises at least one family day per year. Typically a scenic outdoors venue is selected for a whole day of organised games, eating, drinking and general merry making.
Christmas Party
One special day in the year is set aside for the annual Christmas Party. Generally arranged for the kids and all club members. With a set program of events we kick back, look back at the achievements and highlights of the year, give out our club awards, watch the special kid's presentations, exchange presents and enjoy each other's company in the spirit of season.
