    Hi,

    I want to play badminton but I don't know anyone in the area. Can someone suggest me where I can join other people?

    Thanks!

    Hi pingu,

    Well the season is over but it will start in September! I often played in Waltham, but also in Winchester. I don't know which level you play, but in Waltham is a much higher level then as in Winchester.

    Maybe if you could tell me where you live I can let you know where to play!

    If you have more questions or something else please email to this address.
    RudieandWende@comcast.net

    Because the other address, I do not use often!

    Wende

    it's a great club and costs $8 to play. Level of play is competitive. You should try it.

    Visiting Boston to Play Badminton

    Hi Wende/Lexis,

    I am visiting Boston from May 29 to June 2. Wondered if you would kindly take me to play badminton while I am in town? I am advanced intermediate player - have been playing badminton competitively for over 5 years (doubles). Appreciate your help if you could email me to play together while I am visiting. thanks much and hope to hear back from you guys! :)

    There is good group at Waltham. I believe they meet on Saturdays (afternoon).
    Address: 785 Beaver Street in Waltham (4pm to 7pm). It is pay per play, so membership not required.

    You can try MIT also pay per play. Maugus club you need membership.
