    Anyone in Minnesota, USA, who is interested in training? I had some training for two month but the coach had to split so no more training.

    I know a place where people can train and if I can drum up enough people to make it financially feasible, it would be a lot of fun.

    Hi Ben,

    I am in Minnesota. How much is the cost and can you provide me with more information?

    Where do you normally play?

    I should say I know a place where there are courts available for training, but not the actual training itself. I am thinking about organizing some form of training but I am nowhere near being qualified to train anyone.

    By training I mean basic footwork and reflex training. Maybe an hour a week.

    Let me know if you have any ideas of your own.

    Ben

    where is that place at? If it is not too far, I might think about it.
    I am wondering if I will drive half an hour for just an hour play. :p

    Where do you normally play?
    I normally play on wednesday and friday night, if you are interested, you can join me and my friends.

    :)

    Oh, I heard of this place before, but I thought there is no longer available as a place to play badminton anymore?
    I live in Burnsville, but one hour play is kinda too short though.

    Place and schedule where I play:

    Wednesday 7.30pm - 10pm
    Saturday 3pm - 5.30pm
    Eisenhower Community Center
    1001 Highway #7 Minnetonka, MN 55305

    About 20 minutes drive from Burnsville in nice weather.

    Yes. The guy who previously maintained the club went back to California. He was also the coach who trained me.

    I am thinking about organizing something at the place. The woodbury high school club is quite crowded and not many people are interested in doing any training.

    I work in burnsville at BF Goodrich on CR 42 and Judicial Rd. I wonder if there is any place near Burnsville that we can play. Perhaps we can drum up enough people south of the river to come.

    As far as I know, there is nowhere near Burnsville has a place available for badminton. Unless you are a member of the Northwest Athletic Club, I heard there are some members play on a tennis/volleyballl court once a while.

    Or you can check out some other places to play in MN at http://www.usabadminton.org/

    Most of the badminton places I play at needs at least 20 - 30 minutes drive from Burnsville.

    That sucks in winter. :(

    Sorry to resurect an old thread, but did you guys ever find anywhere south of the river to play? I'm living in Inver Grove Heights and looking for a place to play that isn't quite so far.
