Marked by both a love for the sport and a long tradition, the Lakeshore Badminton Association, more commonly known as the LBA was incorporated on March 8, 1996 under the name "Association de badminton du Lakeshore".
As one of the oldest badminton leagues in Quebec, and maybe even in Canada, the "LBA" made its debut in 1946 under the name "The Montreal Lakeshore Badminton League". The Montreal Lakeshore Badminton League was dissolved after the 1953-54 season, but was reconstituted under the name "Lakeshore Badminton League" for the 1958-59 season, with the original member clubs being Valois, Clearpoint, Hudson and Chateauguay.
The "LBA" consists of recreational and competitive players, adults and juniors. There are over 1,000 players who are members of our clubs, either playing recreationally or competitively, or both. Our junior and competitive programs are gaining in strength, and we have among our members many of the top players from the provincial ABC and junior circuits.
