    Hi folks,
    These are the places that I know of that are available for badminton in my home town.

    Kitchener-Waterloo Granite Club (Private Members Only)
    Badminton Section
    69 Agnes Street
    Kitchener, Ontario
    N2G 2E9


    You can also play badminton on the campus of Waterloo University.

    You can find more info about the University of Waterloo Badminton Club at the following link.

    This is Kitchener's most active badminton club in my opinion.

    You can also play badminton at the YMCA on a drop-in basis, if you are not a member for about $5-$8 at the following web adress address.

    These are the only places that I know of to play badminton in my home town. :(
    Yeah now you know why I didn't really play in those 4 years :eek:

    Kitchener, ON, here...

    Anywhere I can play badminton at? I know the Y has badminton Tuesdays and Sundays but it's often busy and I despise doubles...

    Can you list some places where there are courts available?

    Thanks.

    I believe that you can play at Rim Park as well.

    IMO, RIM Park isn't the best place for badminton. The ventilation system there is a little too strong, and the courts along the wall side of the gym suffer from a severe case of draft problems.

    Granted, it's been almost two years since I last played at RIM Park, so certain things might have changed. Then again, they might not have.

    They used to have drop-in badminton for a couple hours at lunch at RIM Park. It's a nice facility, but definitely not for badminton. The net heights are also too low the last time I played there.

    I'm sure you can drop-in at the KW Granite Club. It's only $5 I believe, and it never seems to be busy whenever I go there...
