    Hey I'm from Msia and will study in Adelaide very soon, would like to know where is the most suitable place to play for a A grade player, and how about the transport to those places? I'm staying around central market

    It's good you're central in the city. Makes transport a little easier.
    Lockleys is the main place where they hold regular weekly competitions for all grades..
    Look at the other links that were originally posted to see where you can go..

    http://www.badmintonsa.org.au/badminton-sa-where-to-play.html#wheretoplay

    The two unis in the city may have some sessions and be easier for you to get to..

    You can come to glenunga high and meet lots of people to play with but it can get busy at times.

    If you want to play in the weekly A grade competition, you'll need to join one Glenelg, Sturt, PAOC or Adelaide Uni clubs and ask them to put you on a team. See the Badminton SA web site at the link in leongwaipak's post. Winter season usually starts in April or May. For social games, just drop in to any club and see who's there. Usually there's a range of standards from beginner to A grade. If you're near the central market, it's easy to catch a bus to most locations.

    Most clubs will finish around 10 p.m. Buses usually run until after 11. So if you study the bus timetable and make a plan, you should be able to manage.

    No. Most clubs take a break over Christmas and New Year. If you want to play this week, Glenunga is your best bet. Glenelg start on January 13th. PAOC start on February 3rd. I'm not sure about the other clubs.
