    I believe the regular spelling is 'Incheon'.
    You could request assistance from event :)

    Well, a posting in this forum is tantamount to asking me directly.

    Incheon is a city of 2 million people and it's 1000 sq. km (including a 110 sq. km island) so some specifics on your location would be helpful.

    This site shows 39 clubs. There are probably more that are not listed and some that are listed may play outside and sometimes more than one listed club will share the same gym but regardless, there are too many options to enumerate without some geographical specifics. If you know the name of the dong or gu or just the nearest subway station, I can help.

    thanks for the replies. i asked someone who knows Korean to look at the site and it seems very useful. do any of you also know about places that would offer lessons or classes for badminton? preferably beginner or intermediate level.

    The easy answer is that any club that plays in a proper indoor gym with at least five courts should have a full-time coach. Quite often, you can take lessons in the mornings, the evenings, or even the afternoons. I don't think I've ever seen a gym without a coach.
