    well, I see this email is over a year old (almost 2 now), but I'll still answer it in the hopes you'll read this or some other CT resident wishes to play. Miss Porter's School in Farmington has a Weds night session. Newington Park and Rec has a club, but they're always full and don't seem to take extras. Greenwich is really big, but I don't know where specifically. If anyone knows of others please post them, as I'd love to know as well.

    Thanks
    Hope it helps
    Chris

    Fairfield club plays every mondays 7:30-9:30 pm, at Tomlinson Middle School its near westport or i think exit 22 going 95 north. COntact person Peter Bartush, I cant find his number at this time but you can search on the web. Where exactly in ct are you going to move? Also Greenwich YMCA or YWCA has court tues, thurs 7-9pm, walk in fees are $10, i think. With the fairfield club its $5/year membership and $3/day for the shuttle fees :) not bad eh?
    Hope this helps

    More CT Badminton Courts?

    Joey and others, thanks for the info. Any chance there are places other than Miss Porter's and the Newington Park and Rec Club? I live near Farmington/Avon and could use the exercise. Used to play in highschool and my racquets may need to be restrung. Any ideas where I can take them? Any contact info for Miss Porter's school and the Newington Park and Rec Club? Thanks!

    Greenwich, CT, YWCA. It would open again in March, around the 8th. 7:30-9:30pm Tue and Thu, Sat 2:30-4:45pm. Last year it was $10 per session non-member, $8 "Program Member" - Program Membership costs $85 per year, and free for Full Members.

    The only place i get to play at is the open gym at the local high school. Are there any clubs or places to play in Connecticut, preferably closer to Glastonbury.

    Several locations you can go...

    There are clubs in Greenwich, Fairfiled, Orange, and Ridgefield (currently closed). Let me know which one is more convenient for you and I will give your more detailed information.

    :D Hi :) why dont you look up the links by lazy buddy, that helped a lot. I also love in Norwalk and I usually play in greenwich ywca Mon, tue and thurs 730-930pm. $12 drop in fee but if you become an affiliate member, $100/year, it will be $8 per day. Bring your own shuttles, all levels of play. Also play in NY, just google or click on lazy's links, Brooklyn Club, NYCB in manhattan, friendly in Jamaica, NY, lost batallion rego park, chinatown.All in NY, there is one club in fairfield by coach Peter Bartush and he holds summer plays and its the cheapest. Hope this helps :)

    Welcome to Stamford!

    I live in Stamford too, right off Hope St. We have several badminton players in the area. I do play at least three time a week including a trip to NY every Saturday. You can email me at wjjwshanghai@hotmail.com if you need any information on badminton clubs or if you want to have a ride to the clubs.
