In 2005, a group of avid badminton players finally pinpointed their favorite part of the game: community. Springing from this insight, they opened Bellevue Badminton Club, inviting members to mingle or hide from exes behind their rackets on 11 courts open 24/7. The club’s coaches, including Israel's 1998 national champion and a seven-time national collegiate title winner, lead private lessons and classes. For juniors and adults alike, classes range from laid-back to competitive based on pupils' abilities and goals.
When learners vacate the courts, members and nonmembers have free rein to play drop-in matches or trace outlines of each other in chalk. Round-robin doubles and singles leagues cultivate atmospheres of amiable competition, enabled by top-shelf Yonex equipment found at the pro shop.
The Bellevue Magic Season Ice Arena presented by Bank of America and Alaska Airlines Visa Signature card captures a little holiday magic beneath it's peaked pavilion roof. Garland, wreaths, and ribbon hang from above, while the open fourth wall leaves the arena open to sunlight, fresh air, and marauding caribou. The rink stays open come rain or shine, with staff members always ready to welcome visitors and supply them with rented skates. They also provide an ongoing holiday soundtrack, with music from STAR 101.5. Should skaters feel the need to refuel, a concession stand provides hot beverages, cups of noodles, and bagels and cream cheese in exchange for cash only, or concrete proof that yetis exist.
