    Welcome to Seattle.

    Highline High School: (mon/thurs night during school year)
    Level: all skill levels
    8 courts, low ceiling, not great lighting
    Talk to Steve Ellis, he'll set up game for you.

    North Sea-tac community center (mon/wed/thur night, Sat 12-4)
    Level: all (mon/wed/thur) more advanced players on Sat
    4 courts, high ceiling

    St Edward (thur evening)
    Level: more advanced players
    4 courts, ceiling (ok, a little low), not great lighting

    We're also in the process of having a dedicated fulltime badminton facility
    in Bellevue area. I'll announce it later, looks like a go so far (lease should
    be signed by this week).

    BCD tournament is coming up in early December. As I mentioned previously,
    signed up the Seattle Badminton Yahoo Group, you'll recieve the latest
    badminton related news in Seattle/WA area.

    I am really interested to have a regular partner to play with also, but I have no idea how to go to Renton community center and the most important thing is, I don't have a car.

    Does anyone know if the Bellevue - Pro Sports Club is a good place to play badminton?

    Added: Those places which have Badminton on Friday, which one is considered the popular one. I never really played badminton in the Seattle area so I'm definately interested in playing tonight.

    Thanks

    Anyone know how much membership is at Proclub bellvue? I heard the Redmond one is VERY expensive for anyone not working for microsoft.

    The $100 to $200 (don't know the exact figure) is the annual fee for badminton
    in additional to the regular membership dues (initation fee plus monthly due).
    Check out their website membership info:

    http://www.proclub.com/

    The badminton fee does include shuttlecocks, there're 8 courts. The visibility
    is not great and it's fairly crowded most of time.

    From what I've heard, Bellevue Pro club initiation fee is like 3K what what the people at the North Sea Tac who played badminton there said.

    clinton, I received a PDF about the upcoming dedicated badminton gym in bellvue...however it did not mention the cost for drop-ins. How much will it cost for a drop-in?
