    Is there a good court close (like, really close) to the Sultan Hotel?

    Also, do people play in the morning, say, from 6am to 8am?
    If not, how about in the evening, say, from 8pm to 11pm? :)

    The hotel has an abundance of tennis courts but (surprisingly in Indonesia) it doesn't have one for badminton! :eek:

    ^^It's because..^^

    ..you're coming and all the INA(Jakarta)-based BCers are afraid of challenging you...;)(j/k):)

    Are you traveling to Jakarta?:) If so, try contacting/PM-ing our Krisna-->I think he'll provide you with better playing courts and perhaps partners....;):cool:

    I think ... Had a little peek there visiting one of the shops in the INA shop list somewhere in the market place section. Should be across the road behind the convention center. But I'm sure others will be able to tell more about it ...
    Same street as Senayan City

    Yes, I'm scheduled to be in Jakarta in a few days from now.
    It's, um, work-related... and, so, I'm packing only two racquets :D

    Thanks for the, er, Photo to Nowhere :p
    I haven't the faintest idea where it is.
    (And it looks like a pic taken from a prison cell :D)

    The nearest badminton courts to Sultan Hotel, is Istora Senayan or The courts near Mulia Hotel at jl. Asia Afrika. I used to play baddy near Mulia Hotel, every saturday. I tried to put the map..but failed..maybe the size is too big

    yeah, there are a few courts nearby, near Hotel Mulia there is one. There is another one near Senayan which my colleague is playing with his son but I heard that it is not that good(but it is cheap)

    I don't know anyone playing in the weekday morning except Sunday morning, 6.30am-8.30am at Jelambar(west Jakarta). Night time usually the time when most people playing

    I think you should get in touch with Krisna. He might be able to help you with the arrangements.

    The Owner was ex INA Tennis Association, so some Tennis Challenger or Satellite was held in there. Badminton is needed indoor court while tennis could played outdoor.

    The closest badminton is Istora, then Tennis Indoor or Badminton Hall near Mulia Hotel. Some badminton event has been held in these places.

    I've been here a day... but no success :eek:

    Everyone I am now interacting with plays either golf or tennis.
    And I thought Indonesia was the popular home of badminton!
