    Hi,

    I live near the Worcester area, where is 30 minutes driving from Framinghan and 1 hr from Boston. I want to play badminton but don't know where to go...

    Can anyone tell me the badminton play information in western/central area of MA?

    Thanks a lot,

    YL

    It's better to move to major cities

    HI, YL:
    Sorry to hear that. I can not help.
    One suggetion: it is better to move to a major city which has some badminton clubs. Badminton is very unpopular in US (at least in the East). I got a friend drives 1 and 1/2 hour from Rochester, NH to play in Boston area every time.

    Playing in the Worcester Area

    Hi,
    I am also looking for a place to play somewhere near the worcester Area. If you find somewhere let me know. I know that if you are able to start a group you can play at the Oxford Community Center.

    I check the threads and thank you for taking the time to answer. Boston is about 1.5 hrs from me, so too far away. However, since my post, I started at the Westfield YMCA and like it!!
