Membership Payment
USA Badminton membership will work on a yearly subscription service that offers automatic renewal. New members will be charged $50 for their initial membership year. Unexpired and active memberships will subsequently be able to renew for $40. Expired memberships that are renewed more than 30 days after the membership expired will be subject to an additional $10 initiation fee and the new membership term will begin when payment is received and expire no less than one year later. If you pay your membership renewal within 30 days after the expiration of your current membership term, your renewed membership will expire one year after the current term expires.

Upon activation, all memberships will be automatically enrolled in the yearly subscription renewal service for $40 yearly and you will receive a statement confirming your renewal.

You may cancel your membership automatic renewal subscription at any time by emailing If you opt-out of automatic renewal, when you receive your annual renewal bill you can manually renew online through your Club Locker account before your current membership expires.

**For a limited time, the $10 initiation fee is being waived for both new members and memberships expired for more than 30 days.**

Cancellation Policy
If you request to cancel your membership, it will expire without renewal at the end of the current term, but with no dues refunded. We reserve the right for cancellation of a membership at our discretion, without prior notification. Reasons for cancellation include but are not limited to verbally or physically abusive behavior or material misrepresentation. USAB advocates for the safety of our members, employees and service providers as our top priority.
