This may seem kind of random, but I had no idea there was this connection between badminton and Niagara Falls
From the St Catharines Standard:
When we think about sports excellence in Niagara Falls, we can include both team sports and individual activities. Although it may not be the first sport that pops into to your mind, one such sport has a long history in the Falls.
Although we don’t hear much about the sport of badminton today, it was a very popular winter sport that dates back to the roaring 1920s. Local church basements and school gyms were frequently used by many enthusiastic players, both young and old. In November 1928 (more than 90 years ago), a group of interested people applied for and were granted incorporation under the name of Niagara Falls Badminton Club Ltd.
