Cambrian College is proud to announce the return of badminton as a varsity sport for the 2019/20 season. The Golden Shield last fielded a badminton team three years ago.
Between 1969 to 2016, the Cambrian College badminton team dominated the courts, winning 10 provincial overall team titles, including seven in a row between 1999 and 2006. The Golden Shield badminton team also captured national and provincial titles in men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles, and mixed doubles, making it Cambrian’s most successful varsity team.
At a news conference, Jim Duff was introduced as the coach of the new Golden Shield badminton team. Duff is a coach with the Sudbury Junior Badminton Club and two high school teams in Greater Sudbury. He also coached Team Northern Ontario at the Ontario Winter Games.
Cambrian looks forward to beginning a new era of excellence in varsity badminton.
