    From the information from my friends, almost every district in Hochiminh City has its own team and they practice regularly at the main gym of the district (I know some strong teams like District 5, District 1, Binh Thanh) If you are interested, just go to their practice and ask them to join :) (I don't know it is possilbe or not, but it worths a try)

    Badminton at HCMC

    yes, sometimes it's frustrating arriving in a city and wants to have a game and you don't know any players or places to play. I am sure there are places to play if you look hard enough. District 10 and 11 are in the Chinatown area, right? You can always consider playing at Ky Hoa park which is 10 minutes ride by bike.There are three courts. You can turn up and see if the players are to your standard. If you think you match their standard, just introduce yourself and tell them you are interested to join the session.
    Let me tell you my personal experience in HCMC. I have been to Vietnam a couple of times this year and every time I brought along my racket without having a hit as I am not familiar with the place. On my last trip I happened to see people playing in district 1 in the morning. I told myself this would be the first time I might have to play badminton in the open air if I want a game in HCMC. In one court, I saw some players that were of my standard (B grade standard) and I introduced myself that I wanted to have a game using sign language. They could understand me and put me to play with some players to test my standard. I passed the test and they invited me to play with them. I ended up playing with them every morning for 3 weeks. The only problems are it starts at 6.00a.m and by 7.30 every body is gone(windy too). On top of that I cannot speak Vietnamese.But all the same we played and enjoyed the games using sign language which was fun. I think finding players of compatible standard is very important.The normal procedure is to contribute to the court fee and bring shuttle.
    Let me know if you need any help.Cheerio
