    Hi everyone,

    I am looking for a badminton partner in Orange County, CA-USA to play for fun and improve. I haven't played for three years, because I don't have anyone to play with or against. :confused: I love badminton and I consider myself as an intermediated player. Please anyone...thanks

    If you own a Gulf-Stream G450, it might take just 1 hour from Sunnyvale from Orange County. Really not that far. :D

    I really appreciate it. Thanks, but I think we are too far apart. I live in Westminster which is about I think six hours away from Cunnyvale...

    Hi there,

    I know that place OCBC. It is quite expensive though to play there.
    $18/person. I can't afford that on a regular basis. But who knows, I will stop by sometime. I let you know. Thank you.

    If you're interested, come on over to the Irvine Badminton Club on Saturdays 6-9pm (cost $8). There are many intermediate players.

    I'll help with some introductions when you get there. The person in charge is Joeseph Lin. He is usually training someone from 5-6:30pm in the court nearest where you sign up. Just ask Joe to find me.

    See ya.

    I didn't went to highschool here in the US. I attended H.S. in Germany and came seven years ago to the US.

    Hey there

    I am also looking for a partner to play in OC and in my opinion San Gabriel Valley Club is the best place to play IN OC.

    I do not go there but i am willing to join if i find a partner to play. i am free on evening and on the weekend.

    Please email me @ Abhishek1981@gmail.com if you are interested or anybody else interested in playing.

    Thanks
    Ash

    SGVBC is not in Orange County, but LA county... Anyway, for $7 drop-in fee, it is hard to find a better place than this since it opens the door 24-7. My two cents about the facility really in OC are OCBC is darn expensive ($20 drop-in) and IBC can only has 3 hours for each session.

    Anyways, SGVBC has an excellent monthly membership program.

    Play at Cerritos H.S.

    Another place to play is at Cerritos H.S.:rolleyes:

    Opens
    Tuesday 6-9pm full gym.
    Thursday 6-9pm half gym.
    Saturdays 9-1pm full gym, pending availability.
    Sundays 5-9pm full gym.

    Cerritos community services runs the gym and suppose to check ID.
    (only open to Cerritos Residents only), but they never check ID since I've been playing there. If they checked ID, the gym would be half empty.
    If they do ask you for ID, cuz you're a new face in the gym, just say that your here with Paul. They know me at the gym.:cool:

    Beginner to intermediate level players to play against.
    If you get bored of the intermediate players, I can play against you.
    Just ask for Coach Paul.:)

    Cerritos H.S. is located at 183rd street and Bloomfield Avenue.
    If you need more info, email me paul@Meritekusa.com
    :)

    Play at Cerritos H.S. is Free.

    Oh, I forgot to say, it's free to play at Cerritos H.S.

    Also, since your in Westminster, I heard Westminster H.S. has their gym open on Saturdays from 10-5pm, not sure if open to public. You may go and ask Coach Dagget (I think) and see if you can play there. I don't think he will mind more interested Badminton players to play against his team. It's free too, but lots of H.S. students. Don't know what is your level...:)
