The Podium Powered by STCU will transform into a world class badminton facility when Spokane hosts the 2023 USA Badminton Junior National Championships, June 25 – July 2, 2023. “From the start, we wanted to ensure The Podium Powered by STCU was a true multi-purpose venue” says Ashley Blake, CEO of Spokane Sports. “Hosting badminton is another example of the flexibility in the design of the facility.”
