Badminton game

Badminton

One of the best places to play badminton in Washtenaw County is at the Meri Lou Murray Recreation Center! We can accommodate up to eight courts simultaneously. The center offers drop-in play opportunities for adults and families separately during various times throughout the week.

An annual non-sanctioned tournament has been organized by volunteers and staff since December of 2001 and typically takes place during the winter season.

Check out our current gym schedule Summer Gym Schedule for scheduled badminton times.

Drop In Pickleball at MLMRC 2

Pickleball

If you have not yet heard of pickleball, it is about time that you do! This paddleball game has interested people for over 20 years, and it is played similar to tennis and badminton. What makes pickleball different from badminton or tennis is that instead of using a racket, you use a wooden paddle to hit the ball back and forth. The gymnasium can accommodate multiple nets simultaneously. At the MLM Recreation Center, pickleball is a growing co-ed participant sport and all ages are welcome!
