We encourage individuals to register through clubs where they usually play - by doing so you support your local club and allow them continue to grow. Ask at your club about Badminton WA membership registration. Clubs operate using different fee models, and the cost of membership may differ between clubs.
If you are not a regular at any particular badminton club - you still can be an individual (non-club) member of Badminton WA with full access to the same benefits.
