    there's lots of badminton clubs available, I am sure you can find one fit you well.

    Flying dragon, Lee's & Mandarin are the biggest commercial badminton club in GTA. Also check out

    www.freebirdsgroup.com (Free Birds Group, none-profit)
    www.torontochinese.ca (Bill Wu's Toronto Chinese, business)

    etc....

    you will meet lots of players ....

    yea I'm at the Willowdale badminton club but the season's just about wrapped up so I'm left to choose between the community centers and the badminton facilities for the summer. Well for anyone who's interested, our club is welcoming new members next season for $50. That's every Tuesday from September to June.

    I've played at Willowdale Club a few times when I was looking for a place to play in North York. Tuesday nights is a waste unless you're a beginner. Yes they do have 6 courts, but only because they are not proper size. I believe there is about 3 feet of length missing from each end of a court, so it's really short and therefore the lines are off as well. Fine if you can't normally hit baseline to baseline, but for intermediate and advanced players, there's no point playing there on Tuesday nights.

    On Friday nights, they set up the courts lengthwise across the same gym so you get 3 regulation sized courts.

    im up to play. 16 years old, in high school team, striving very aggressively to play better. unfourtunately, i do not have anyone that can bring me to clubs and show me how to get in and get some decent training. if you're interested, PM me, I dont get much practice from people i see.

    If you're interested, I can also possibly do summer membership at mandarin or some other club.
