    Yes, they do have multi-purpose Sport hall in Genting

    I was representing Genting from 84-88. That hall with 4/5 Badminton courts and a Squash court already gave way to current First World Hotel.

    But recently about 3 years ago, our teams went up there for a friendly match. The new Badminton hall was built inside the staff's quarters. Not sure how many courts are there (Maybe 4-5 courts).

    I remembered the Genting Badminton Sport Club specially ordered Shuttlecocks from Taiwan (300 dozens per order). The club requested to have the shuttle slower than the slowest in the market.

    I do not know whether tourist allow to book the court. If you plan and allow to play there, remember to bring along with you the slowest shuttle there. Also after a game and you are waiting for next game, keep yourself warm by wearing jacket, otherwise your body will be numb. Expect to be out of breath easily. High attitude (Genting is about 6000feet above sea level) naturally contain less air (thin air) :eek:.
