    Also, Tues from 7 pm - 10 pm is half price off admission. It's good if you're tight on money, but it's somewhat busy.

    Too bad, I go to Cardel Place sometimes but people only play with those they come with and court times are limited and more crowded especially on weekends.

    I am not a senior and I play there, too.

    It is a great place to practice your footwork technique since most of the time your partner won't be doing much to get the birdie unless it's hit directly to them(and not above them). =)

    Keep in mind, no hard smashes to the center of the court because chances are you will hit one of your opponents(whom for some reason stand in front of the net) straight in the face. LOL

    There are a few very good players there from time to time.

    Hello kasuya,

    I was there today, maybe we should meet up sometime. Maybe we have already played before. Good to hear from a fellow member.

    If your still interested in classes theres actually a class down at the Chinese Clutral Centre for badminton its either tuesdays or thursdays (depends which one you sign up for) its about $80 and its 10 classes, i think its from 6pm-9pm and i believe that classes start on the 21 (tuesday) or 23 (thursday) of febuary so i believe you have till then to register for it, might want to call and make sure about all of that i have yet to register still waiting for friends to join.

    P.S. I play at VSLC too...guy with asics shoes and forza racquet lol not much help :p

    eric was pretty good without any training.
    after some training at talisman, he is playing lots more badminton (and less basketball) these days.
