    Anyone know of any places to play in Vienna/Innsbruck? I know of the courts at Pressbaum, can I have some more information ... specifically the answers to the following questions - do we need to be members? and do they rent out racquets?
    any suggestions of places to play in Vienna city would be appreciated
    thanks

    you don't have your own racquet? :eek:
    rented racquets tend to be crap because the string tensions are all out. i would say it's better to get a cheap/mid range racquet which is well strung than waste money on rented racquets.

    This hotel - HOTEL BOSEI - AUSTRIA TREND VIENNA - has badminton listed as one of its recreational activities...
    so does Airo Tower Hotel.
    The stadthall was the venue for a recent baminton tournament, though I don't think they have permanent badminton courts [the site - www.stadthalle.com is in German]
    Wellness Park Oberlaa seems to have a few badminton court (again, the sites in German, and translation isn't much of a help)
    sorry...won't be able to play with you...I'll be arriving only on the 12th
