    I sent the email out and eagerly waiting a reply. Although I dont have my hopes up as i know many clubs associated with Colleges do not allow non-student body members.

    SJSU allows non-students to go play. You just need to pay a drop-in fee since you're a non-student.

    SJSU replied saying that the badminton club is for college students only, but I could drop in. Unfortunately, I just moved in here not knowing anyone to go during free gym. Ill keep looking for a drop in style club.

    There's SJSU badminton club and SJSU open gym which are two separate things. SJSU open gym is open to anyone. SJSU badminton club is only for SJSU students.

    I hope this link helps. i found it from another Badminton Forum site. It lists all the places in NorCal and SoCal.
    Also there are some groups on facebook that are high school badminton clubs that list open gym times to the public every once in a while.
    I'm a part of the Benicia Badminton group on Facebook and theres also contributors from other places who posts open gym schedules for local sports centers, like the schedule for the Georgie Duke Center in Vacaville.

    CCC in San Pablo, too.

    here's part of an email update from the guy that runs it:

    There are some regulars there, about 6 courts set up usually (can add more if needed).

    I go there once and a while.

    It is actually closed from 6/18-6/28 floors being redone. But plan on being there 7/6 sun. I usually go with one of my roomates. Many times i have a 3rd roomate who would love us to find a fourth player. You can contact me at 925 372-7092.

    I normally go to a club in Vacaville since my brother and sis-in-law live in American Canyon. The Vacaville gym is pretty good. There are 6 courts and property is well maintained and has good friendly crowd.

    Address is at:
    Georgie Duke Sport Center
    720 E Monte Vista Ave
    Vacaville, CA 95688
    Hours (sometime changes due to season):
    Fridays 6-10, Saturdays 5-9, and Sundays 2-6

    I am thinking of playing more in East Bay, so hit me up if you still need buddy to go during weekdays.
