    Ahhh.. it's the long weekend.. and problem is now that UBC is having exams.. the SRC (student rec centre) is not open to drop-in sports :(

    Also.. seeing as badminton schedules/ dropin areas change often.. I found some of the older threads a bit outdated. Where can I play on weeknights? (any nite is fine)

    I know there's Britannia on Friday nites. Strathcona is closed for the next 2 weeks for Sunday.

    Where else can i go? :)

    Now this weekend is Easter Long Weekend. Wondering if anyone knows where I could play badminton? :)

    Any help for this special weekend would be great..

    Friday is closed at Guildford, Saturday and Sunday are early close, so likely the evening badminton on Saturday night is closed.

    Britannia is closed this Friday night - Good Friday. Not sure is Saturday resumes normal.
