Yonex Canada Continues Support of High School Badminton through 2019

OFSAA is excited to announce that Yonex Canada will continue their partnership as the official shuttle and badminton racquet of OFSAA into 2019.  Yonex has been a great partner for OFSAA badminton for over 15 years and this agreement will ensure their support for another five years.  As part of the agreement, Yonex is sponsoring a contest to help teachers and students to build an intramural badminton program in their school.  Please see the details of the contest below.

OFSAA sponsors provide both financial and in-kind contributions to support championship hosting and OFSAA programing. We encourage all schools to support OFSAA sponsors to help ensure these types of partnerships can continue.
