    Jakarta is very large area (having 5 regions, Barat-Timur-Utara-Selatan-Pusat). You should state where your location is. Usually expatriate plays at GOR Asia Afrika Senayan ( next to Hotel Mulia), Pasar Festival - Kuningan.

    Hi, you will stay at Kelapa Gading, that is North Jakarta (Jakarta Utara). You can play at Olympic Hall (this sport hall belongs to Alan Budikusuma and Susi Susanti, both are our Badminton Legend). Location of Olympic Hall is behind Balai Samudra Hall (meeting/wedding reception building). Balai Samudra location opposite the MOI (Mal Of Indonesia). Here is the map :

    You can visit and asking the management person if there is a group/club for joined. Alternatively, you seek the sport hall at Sunter (I think your driver will know).

    Senayan and Kuningan are very far from Kelapa Gading :)

    Hi Pak Mizuno, tks for yr advise. U mean i can just walk into sport hall and ask teh managment if there is a group for me to join?


    Hi Notorious, glad on yr reply. is this yr regular group? Yr group play every Monday n Thursday without fail? Can i join yr group but i may be not that good as yr Indonesian player if u dont mind for me to try out.
    Normally, how does yr share the cost?

    Yes Leejo, because this is the first you come to that place, unless you already have friends there.

    Hi Mizuno, do you know what days and time does the group at GOR (next to Mulia) play? I play at Pola Bugar on Wed and Lodan on Fri evenings. It's rather far for me so looking for a place near Senayan. Is it mostly expats? How's the standard like? I am keen to join.
