We invite women, girls and families with children to join us for the inaugural Badminton Victoria Girls Invitational and a mix of fun and social badminton events in Bendigo over the weekend of 2-3 July 2022! Hosted by Badminton Victoria, the exciting weekend celebrates women’s and girls’ participation in sport.

Dubbed the fastest racquet sport in the world, badminton is a fun, dynamic and exciting activity for improving physical and mental health. Bendigo residents and visitors can enjoy all the badminton festivities on offer at Eaglehawk Badminton stadium, the home of Bendigo Eaglehawk Badminton Association. Whether it’s a friendly competition, a casual trial, or a way to keep muscles warm, badminton activities are on offer for any level of experience.

Badminton Victoria Girls Invitational – 2-3 July

To celebrate competitive girls’ sport, the inaugural Badminton Victoria Girls Invitational welcomes females under 19 years old to test their skills in a fun and friendly competition. Supported by the City of Greater Bendigo and Sports Marketing Australia, competitors will experience singles and doubles games with players of a similar age and experience level. Teams of two players can now be entered in Open and Beginner Divisions for age groups Under 19, Under 15 and Under 13.
