    Has anyone played at the University of North Texas or is that only for students of UNT ?

    If anyone wants to arrange a game - drop me an email chickendonut@centurytel.net. I'm an intermediate.

    It turns out that Carpenter Park in Plano uses racket ball courts for badminton, so that's utterly useless, especially with no line markings.

    If anyone knows of anywhere in the vicinity I'd be grateful and available for a game.

    Hi, all,

    I am a British, very rusty, badminton player (female). As well as somewhere to play, I would love to find someone to play some friendly games with - who would be patient with my rustiness to begin with - or I would be happy to play with a beginner and give some amateur coaching/advice.

    Sharon

    By the way, is there anywhere to buy a racket here in the Metroplex

    Here are the places to play in the DFW metroplex...
    Samuel Grand Recreation Center Tue & Thu 7-10 p.m.
    Reverchon Recreation Center Mon 7-10 p.m. Sat 10:30 a.m. -1:30 p.m.
    There are different levels of players there & you can easily pick up a game with a biginner group and/or an intermediate group.
    BTW, it is $4.00 to play...

    I'm not sure UNT(University of North Texas) allows outsiders to join our badminton session although we don't require any IDs to enter during Friday session unless you wanna borrow equipments. We're having two badminton sessions per week, Friday and Sunday with two different locations but it's just walking distance to each other. We're packed most of the time these days which it's a good sign that many people are getting interested in badminton. Most players here are beginners while a few of us are intermediates(including me ;)) and we do play matches together. Our population are mainly from India and Asia but European players these days also starting to join our crowd too :). Here are the details if you're interested:

    Friday
    PE Building
    5:30 - 9:30pm
    8 courts open(although there're spaces to hold 16 courts :()
    ID not required unless you need to borrow equipment

    Sunday
    Recreation Center
    5 - 8:30pm
    3 - 6 courts open depends on situation
    ID required upon entering and borrowing equipment

    EDIT:
    Just found out about Guest passes, here's the link

    A friend of mine plays at Huffhines Rec Center at Richardson,
    at Plano Rd and Apollo, Sat 1:30-6pm. I recommend that you call the rec. center to ensure that the times are the same.

    If you want a REAL challenge:D ,but don't mind the additional driving you can visit Reverchon Rec. Center, north of Dallas Downtown. Check out http://www.dallasbadmintonclub.com for additional times and maps. This center probably has the best local players in the area.

    hi all, besides all the places mentioned in all the replies, there is also badminton at UTA (University of Texas at Arlington). they play every friday and sunday nights from 7:30pm to 11:00pm. the only stipultaion is that you will need to buy a visitor pass at $5 each time or a yearly membership. quite frankly i think it is fairly expansive if you are not an alumni member. but i do think they have the best set up with steel posts into the ground and tight nets. i used to play in most of the dallas places and have many friends that still do but now i only play at UTA since i live in arlington. for me i am willing to pay the price since i like to play very much.

    also a quick note, if you are an intermediate to advance player and wants a serious game, then you may want to stick with dallas crowd.

    hope this helps.
