Badminton Requires Smaller Investment
The economic incentives that have favored the expansion of tennis and then racquetball are even more impressive for badminton. An existing indoor tennis court can be converted permanently to as many as five badminton courts. Using portable badminton courts, it can be converted to four courts and still retain its use as a tennis court.
A conversion to a first-class badminton facility can be accomplished with a total budget of less than $10,000. The initial investment of $125,000 for the tennis court, plus the maximum conversion cost of $10,000 culminates in a total investment of $135,000. As for a portable installation of four badminton courts, that amounts to $33,000 per court. At a court fee of $10 per hour, it will take 3,300 hours per court to return the investment.
The total investment necessary for five indoor courts for these three sports are as follows:
As the automobile industry has shown, the key to continued success is more efficient use of resources. The biggest resource an athletic or tennis club has is the space of its physical plant, and more efficient use of that space will affect future trends.
For indoor tennis singles play, the space required is approximately 3,000 sq. ft. per player. The badminton space requirement is between 440 and 600 sq. ft. per player, and for racquetball, it’s 400 sq. ft. per player. - Athletic Business
