    You gotta contact any club close to where you want heh. Don't forget that since you're in Scarborough, you can come up to Markham too :cool:

    Yeah ... know what's you mean . I only play for about 7 hours a week =(

    Try this one - International Badminton Club
    http://www.ontariobadminton.on.ca/OBA/OBAWebsite.nsf/DocIDList/39D40916364EDAFA85256DA600587613?OpenDocument

    The price is about 10 dollars an hour ... but if you want to play seriously , then I don't really think this is the club you are looking for ...
