    Badminton Outing on Sat. December 23rd

    I will be visiting KC for Christmas. As a badminton junky, I'm wondering if your group will be playing on Saturday, December 23rd. If you are, please email hubie214@aol.com. Need to know the time and the location. Will write you an email as well.

    Thanks,

    Hubert

    We have students play in University of Kansas, Lawrence during semester. However, you need to be a student/faculty to get the membership or you can have member take you in as guest (pay $7 guest pass).

    Yeap, I've been playing in UMKC a few times :D . The only thing that I dislike is the pale yellow badminton lines that almost bland into the wood floor color.

    We'll have a KU/UMKC/St. Louis badminton Club gathering in UMKC this coming Saturday Feb. 3rd. starting from 11:30am. Feel Free to come.

    Ha ha :D This is arguable, please bring a measuring tape to KU this Sunday! I think the double court should be 44' by 20' or half court length 22'
    Looking forward to this Saturday...

    Can anyone give an update as to what's happening this summer at either Kansas or Missouri?

    I have to stay in overland park, kansas this whole summer and would love it if I can spend as much of that time playing badminton...even if I have to venture out of kansas to missouri. Does anyone know of good places to play? I already searched for places on the internet near that area but I was hoping for some personal feedback and opinions. Please help. Looking forward to meeting new players across the US. :D

    There are some good players in Wichita, KS. Very nice for one to take time to meet with me and play at the Wichita State University Gym. They usually meet on Fridays.

    I just came to live in lawrence as a KU student. Do you know any club, people playing badminton here?
    I saw several courts at the recreational center, but saw just two beginners there. I asked the center's staff but they don't know.
    Miss playing badminton a lot.
    Please lemme know if you know of anyone here at KU or in lawrence
