    Hi, all,

    I originate from the Uk and used to be a member of Pembury league badminton club (in the Tunbridge Wells area).

    I am now too old (!! at 49) to take my badminton back to that level, but I would love to have some friendly games with someone who would be patience with my rustiness and get my eye back.

    I haven't even looked for DFW badminton clubs because I never imagined there would be any - but a recent search for (and discovery) of cricket clubs triggered the thought "hey, what about badminton?"

    Hello guys. I am Bulgarian and I live in Bedford, TX which is in the Dallas - Ft Worth metroplex area (right in the middle and close by the DFW airport). I just came back from a 2 week vacation in Bulgaria where I had the chance to play again badminton. I saw in the thread that there are 2 clubs in Dallas and no info if there is some in forth worth or other areas of the metroplex.
    Does anyone know if there is a place to play the game around the Hurst-Bedford-Euless area? I'd appreciate any info on that.
    Also, regarding the 2 clubs in Dallas, are they near any Trinity Railway Express (TRE) station? I don't want to fight all that Dallas trafic.
    Again thanks in advance for any info.
