    Hi All,

    Just came from Brisbane for couple of weeks... been searching for places to play via this forum but mostly are pretty old postings. So, not sure if they are still valid. Therefore, appreciate your help to list out the places to play. really looking forward to play some games while i am here.

    Found a few, below are the only ones that i know but i don't know their level of play though. Can you let me know their level of play?

    thanks heaps!

    Balcatta Senior High School on Thursday nights are tranning sessions and games and Sunday Afternoon is worth going because they are all advance level.

    If you want extremely good games I suggest go to Balcatta on both days..

    Racquet world will do it for I think $25 dollars depending on what string. There is none in the city. Where do you live?

    My uncle does re-string.

    Thanks Az1k1, just PM you on the stringing. Yea, went to the website but the informaiton on day they plays for Balcatta is not accurate so, i am not really that confident with the information. And it is kinda difficult to risk going there as i don't have any transport and got to depends on taxi.

    Hi, I am interested to join playing badminton with a group or with anyone living in Perth. Can someone let me know where do you usually hang out to meet up and join your group?

    Thanks

    Emmm... Perth CBD would be hard as most of the place to play badminton is in the suburbs.

    the closes would be University of Western Australia which is closed for the exams and holidays and Victoria Park Recreation Centre which is on Friday Night from 7pm.

    Or you can go to Wesley College which is across the river in South Perth. They play on Saturday just have to ask to join. Thats all I can help you with ...

    If would be great work out / training for you to ride to Balcatta on a bicycle. I play every where when i can find time. Mostly south of river in Rossmoyne, Cannington and Samson.

    there last badminton competition is coming up on 21st November 2009 if you are interested to test your skills out. you can get all the information from www.badmintonwa.org.au and other places to play.

    Thats pretty much I can help you with.

    Take care

    the closest i can think of is Samson. run by Andrew.
    Friday nights 7.30pm to 11pm
    Sunday mornings 9.30am to 1pm

    i think there are other sessions in Samson too but i am not aware of their times.
