    Georgia Tech always has a decent amount of players of all levels on Fridays, , Thursdays and Tuesdays...you will need to buy a visitor pass tho.

    Perimeter Church is the best bet, if you want top notch competition.

    there is a club, but you don't have to be in the club to play...the only reason why a club was formed was to be able to reserve courts.

    I moved into dunwoody, GA area yesterday, and will not be able to sleep peacefully until i find a place to play badminton. After reading your posts, i went to perimeter badminton clubs' website only to find out that they aren't accepting any more players :( You think you can sneak me in ;)

    hehehe...ty Sir.. I'll be flying to FL on Sunday, so maybe, i can drop by tommorow. Ohh and btw, if by club leader you are referring to Mr. Ming, then i already had a brief discussion with him over the phone. Per him, the club is up2 its brim with new members and there are already 6-7 members in the waiting list. However, i will let you watch me play before you guys make a decision on whether or not i would be 'in' or 'out' ;)

    thanks...
    P.S. is this the address where you guys play? 9500 Medlock Bridge Road, Duluth, GA 30097

    P.P.S please feel free to contact me directly m_vai@yahoo.com

    Hi guys, I recently moved to Atlanta. I'm also keen on playing badminton and saw that the Perimeter club are not accepting any new players... do you know what the average waiting period is to being accepted into the club?

    I´ve no real idea how long the waiting time is, depends when players leave the club.. put your name on the waiting list, but I suppose it will take a few month :-(

    Ok, to be able to put my name on the list should I come to the club during practice? I guess the address is the one you mentioned before.

    I brought mine with me, too, but some players at the club sell badminton equipment. Try it there! :)

    What kind of level is the play at this club?
    I used to play in England but from the description of the level of play it might be too high for me to possibly participate. I have not managed to play a game in the last six or seven years so I am probably pretty rusty.

    Hi, I've been there last week wednesday and the competition is quite good. I have not played, only watched but there are definately some good players. If I need to put myself in a rate I'd say I am medium compared to them.

    If you'd like we can maybe go and play at the Tech they have mentioned as they have a waiting list. I have submitted my application but still awaits an answer. It will give us practice. You can mail me at jaco.dreyer@us.epiuse.com

    Are you talking about GA Tech? I did not see where they had a club, must have over looked it. Could you give me the link so I can apply myself.
    I am up for a match anytime. As I said I am pretty rusty so dont hold it against me.
    Email me at NigelESellman@yahoo.com and we can try to arrange something. Anyone else is more than welcome to join us as it seems to be pretty tough to find some where to play over in the US. I also know that doubles was always much less exercise than singles
