    I normally play at Rosemount but it's actually really far from where I live.
    Any suggestions as to where I can play in North York??

    Rosemount is at the corner of Bathurst and New Westminster in Vaughan.
    There's a high school (Westmount Collegiate), a community centre/arena, and a theatre there. It's quite big. You should be able to find it =)

    The price is $2 for 18 or under...and $5 for 19+.
    The schedule is somewhat different for the holidays. I myself am not sure what it is....

    They are open this Friday (the 20th), so I hear.
    Should be 7:00-10:30..
    or 7:30-10:00.
    SOmething like that =)

    Anybody...correct me if I'm wrong please =P

    wow.. $2..
    thats much cheaper than the local ymca..
    wouldn't it be.. VERY.. crowed for a high school, esp when its so cheap?
    I'm pretty much a first-time beginner, so I dun think this place is right for me, maybe a little privacy would be good with a couple other friends who can't play very well :p

    thx all btw

    yep..there's also mitchell field. they have a session on tuesdays, i know for sure. however, i think they require signing-up for that.
    tuesday...4:45-6:15. you can drop in and ask questions.
    i've played there on tuesday before. it's run by the city.

    York Mills Badminton Club

    There's also a badminton club at York Mills Collegiate at York Mills and Leslie. I've only been there once but its mostly adults but its fairly good competition. I'd say half are decent and half are just beginners. Overall, nice people but of course, you'll have the occasional jacka$$.
    They play every Monday and Wednesday from 6:30-9:45pm. $7 guest fee, 4 courts. Check it out sometime.

    I was there at their opening day! It was like a fish market with players wearing dirty runners, street shoes, street clothing. Gee i certainly don't want to play there! but other than that, they've nine courts, bad marking, low ceiling. i feel cheap there!
