    Hi! I'm glad to see such a vibrant community in Atlanta. I'll be an Undergrad at Emory this fall and I've played for the past four years. I'm not bad and I want to continue playing. Since I don't have a reliable means of transportation since we're not allowed cars, anyone know a club close to Emory's campus? I know Emory has a club itself, but I haven't heard much about it. Either way, thanks!

    http://www.gutsandglorytennis.com, They are based in Suwanee, GA, but I dont know how well they string. What I might do later is send my racket to www.badminton.net and have them string it same day. I used to buy rackets and have them string it when I was in San Diego.

    Stringing in Marietta

    Hardcore tennis (http://www.hardcoretennis.net/ ) strings badminton rackets. They are located in the Windy Hill Shopping Village mall close to I-285 I-75 intersection. They have strung my rackets for just 15 bucks (my own string). The racket is usually ready the same day.

    I string rackets.

    $12 if you have your own string, otherwise, I have Yonex BG9, BG65, BG80, Ashway Rally 21 mico, and ML-LX, you can choose from.

    also I have order a big amount of shuttlecocks:
    I made a website just for fun:

    hope this will help.

    Hi there,

    I live in Duluth, close by the Perimeter area. I'm an intermediate player who's willing to spill energy across the courts, could anyone introduce me to the Perimeter group?

    zmwoody, How is badminton at Emory? Is it popular?
    I visited that distinguished university a couple years ago. The Woodruff Physical Education Centre was an impressive building!
    But there was nary a sign of a badminton player about.
    It's always nice to read about different clubs around the world in the pages of BadCentral. Anything to share on Emory? :)

    I don't really know about Emory My stepson goes there. They have a intramural team that has gone to some tournaments. I'm in Arizona we have a badminton facility here now before we only had rec center gyms.

    That is a great thing that you have in Mesa now! It is always scary opening a sports-oriented business, especially when the sport is "minor". Best of luck!!:)

    Anyone know of a place to play in Cobb? There are several Univ like Southern Polytech and Kenn State, and there seem to be badminton courts in their gym, but I don't know if they are open to public. Anybody has any information? Looking for a place to smash near home...

    I live in Cobb too! If you find out anywhere to play, let me know. I'm deeply interested in playing and have been looking for a place close by that I don't have to fight traffic to get to after work in order to play.
