    I started out like 3 months ago but I believe I'm not really a complete noob but I want to be able to have a place that I can goto anyday anytime instead of going to rec centres for 2 hours at a certain time I did some research but can't really find a suitable one I'm only 17 so I'm kinda low on cash :cool: but can anyone recommand me some private clubs in toronto. I tried going to mandarin but I'm limited by transportation so only in I need to find a place in toronto any help would be great thank you in advance :D

    In terms of private clubs in Toronto, your options are:

    Boulevard Club (Lakeshore)
    Badminton & Racquet Club aka The B&R (St. Clair & Yonge)
    Royal Canadian Yacht Club (RCYC) (St. George & Bloor)
    the Granite Club (Bayview & Lawrence)

    You'll be able to play pretty much anytime but membership fees are quite steep and exclusive (you also generally requrie a referral to become a member). Mandarin or Lee's are probably your best options.

    If you are not going to use the other facilities at any of these clubs, i.e pool, gym, etc...you may be able to negotiate a membership rate for just the badminton usage. Some private clubs can be snobbish, but they won't turn away business as long as you are presentable.

    You're looking for some 4 digits fees at B&R. You also need referral, as much as I know.

    p.s: probably the most expensive club in toronto :)

    I believe yearly membership (all you can play) at Lee's or Mandarin is about $500 - you should check their website to confirm...
    Personally I go to Lee's once a month as guest ($10 + your own shuttlecocks).
