    Hi, I am just wondering if Badminton is popular in University of Houston (the main campus in Houston, TX) ?

    I just got accepted into the master program there, and I am just trying to see if Badminton is available there before I make my final decision :)

    well, I didn't apply schools there so I couldn't go there. :(

    I am now in the process looking an apartment in Houston (near downtown if possible), and I think I am going to move there in July if there is no other surprises.

    Visiting Houston Aug 6-13

    Hey Poeple from Houston,

    I'm from San Jo, CA....visiting Houston on Aug 6-13. I'd like to find places to play during my visits. Can't live w/o badminton for a week. I'm staying at my cousin's place..somewhere Northwest of Houston abt 1hr away. Any recommendations. I'm about a upper C player...I think.
