    The first of its kind in Las Vegas!

    Las Vegas Badminton Club (LVBC) will be opening its doors to the public in the month of August.

    This is big news to the locals of Las Vegas, being that for that past 5+ years, the players have had to play at recreational centers for 2-3 hrs. at a time. The gym plans to open 7 days a week, from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m. for a drop-in fee of $5/day (No memberships).

    The gym will include 3 very comfortably-spaced courts w/ high-grade badminton mats and nets (w/posts), 29-30 ft. clearance height, pro-shop, lounge area, changing room, 2 table tennis tables and much more.

    The reason for opening this gym is because we feel that the people of Las Vegas deserve a better place to without a harsh restraint on playing time. The basis of this gym will be on COMMUNITY and the help of everyone within it to keep badminton in Las Vegas going strong!

    The locals are known to be very welcoming to playing with newcomers as well as the regulars so if you are out-of-state or living in Vegas but having been playing for a while, drop on by!

    We cannot disclose the actual address at this moment, we can say that the gym will be located in the corner of I-15 and I-215, near Russell Rd.

    most visitors will be staying on the strip. How close to the strip will the club be?

    Best of luck with the club

    location

    The gym will be off of Russell Rd. (on I-15) which actually the first exit to take when trying to get to the Strip (heading North). From here, it's about 5 mins. away.

    Location was the #1 thing we kept in mind while trying to search for the right building for LVBC. Russell Rd. is actually central to Las Vegas so it will be convenient for visitors as well as locals. :]

    I was just there! It is awesome! 3 courts but staff is frendily and owner Henry Fan really cool. He is kinda like the Don in so cal, but really friendly and easy to talk to. He also does printing and has AWESOME business cards, I will order some from him! Pro shop almost fully loaded. Check it out!

    LVBC Awesome

    Just visited from Central California. Great place! The courts are high quality. I agree with kakinami friendly staff and Henry is really cool. Come in the evenings to see the regulars. Most of them play after work.

    High concentration of quality players. If your beginner you won't have trouble finding a coach.
