    Thanks. I will pass this info to SCBA. SCBA is a non profit organization and has been around for a long time. You can visit them on the web at www.scba.org. I am positive they must have come across these issues in the opening of other facilities such as Pierce college and Calabasas.

    My immedeate task and concern is the collection of name, address and contact information to pass on to SCBA. I will need some local help with this.

    Badminton in SCV

    Hello Everyone,

    I play at the Santa Clarita sports complex - they have badminton nets in the racquetball courts (its not the best set up, but it lets me get my badminton fix).

    I was wondering if anyone was interested in starting a badminton club, or at least if someone wants to play. I am intermediate/advanced (im guessing) and would love some more people to play with since I only have one other friend who plays with me.

    Let me know if anyone is interested. Thanks.

    I know its a bit of a drive for you, but if you can come to West LA on Mondays and Wednesday nights at Mar vista rec center, you can get your badminton fix then. It only cost $5 and all the feathered shuttles are provided for you. Wide range of players from beginners to intermediate to advanced.

    Thanks for the info - but like you said - I really rather not drive for an hour + to play some badminton.

    But I appreciate the info!

    Looking For Adult Badminton Players in Santa Clarita (Beg/Int)

    It seems like the only place to play here is at the SC Sports Complex using their racquetball court. :( It's better than having to drive into the valley or other areas in LA. :crying: I'd love to play at least twice a week. :)

    Playing at a racquetball court is not even worth it for me....i mean...its too narrow and you dont even have the correct lines. SC aint that far from the valley...make the trek and come experience some real badminton :)

    I know this posting is old but did you guys ever happened to form a B-Club, and did you start playing here. I am looking for people to play with in Santa Clarita/Newhall/Valencia. I live in Valencia.

    Thanks.
