    Hello,

    I've been in Dubai for a year, and till now I can't find a decent indoor court to play on; or a partner to play with. It looks like baddy is very unpopular in Dubai... there are tennis and squash courts everywhere... Does anyone know any good club or any good indoor court in Dubai or Sharjah?

    Please don't suggest Indian Sports Club, they're wayyyyyy too expensive (US$ 4,500 just to join for the first year, and an additional US$ 500 annually)

    I'm also looking for enthisiastic players to team with or play with... this game is very unpopular here so I haven't really found anyone.

    Re:

    Hello, I'm in Dubaï for 5 months.
    I have found the Dubaï Country Club, less expensive than the other one (1000Dhs for 3 months). But I didn't see the courts.
    A retailler of Badminton articles advises me also the Emirates English Speaking School.

    Hi

    I've been stationed in Dubai for 4 years and till now i can't find a badminton court, and even players. Hope we can establish a badminton club and widen the sports here in Dubai. You can e-mail me directly at bogz332000@yahoo.com

    I'm looking forward to play this sport...

    Thanks
