    Hello everyone,

    I have been looking around in NJ/NY area for a badminton club which is student friendly money wise :p Most of the places I saw like the NYBC, BBC and Friendly are rather expensive :crying: I was wondering if any of you guys have gone through the same and know of any good places to play. Many thanks :)

    BBC does offer some discount for student I believe. However, if the price is still way over ur range, you might have to consider local communicty / activity center(s) instead. :rolleyes:

    I can try that. Getting funding for it from the student government will be difficult. :(

    Might also come to BBC over some weekends so I can play with you guys. :p

    You are more than welcome to do so. Just make sure don't kick my lazy butt too hard with all the young gun power. BBC has quite a few members also travel from NJ area. If possible, maybe your guys can start a carpool something, once u know each other better.
