    re : where to play in chennai

    Hi Kalai,

    I've tried contacting many ppl to get some details of any place where to play. But all were in vain. I used to play earlier at Pallavaram when I was staying there, but now it's not possible.

    Anyway, just inform me if u get any details as to where to play. And of course, I would not be able to play shuttle without a partner !!

    My e-mail id is rejithvarghese@hotmail.com. I'm staying at tiruvanmiyur with my family.

    There are heaps of places to play in Chennai.

    You can choose either Indra nagar or Gandhi Nagar Club if you stay in and around Adayar.

    There a some clubs around Anna Nagar whose names i cannot recollect. But all you need to do is go watch a club tournament (Gandhi Nagar, MCC are the famouse ones) and you will find a club to your liking.

    In and around Mount road is MCC. If you have the dough then you are most welcome there. As we all know it is a bit Snobbish and who is who of Chennai are members there.

    Another baddy club is the MRC (race course club at gunidy) They have decent courts but the team was not so good a few years back. Things might have changed.

    If you want to train and take up baddy seriously then contact Sanjay Sachdeva who teaches at stadium behind Central station and Corporation office. He also teaches at Egmore ???(near Shri Mithai- cant remember the name of the place but do know the location if i drive)

    There is Punjab association club. They play on ok courts but have decent teams. They play at Royapettah- Its a famous girls school and the watchman is a grumpy old guy...

    Hope this helps

    Well! Nice to know there are quite a few people in chennai. I too found a place, in adayar. for those who want to train, there is one group training with a Senthil Kumar in MGR Janaki Women's college. Coach is available on sat and sun mornings between 6 30 and 8 30... got all this info from the watchman; i haven't checked this out myself.

    thanks all, for the info about chennai. will check things out this week.

    Looking for baddy buddies in Thiruvanmiyur

    Hi All,

    Looking for friends who play on weekends. I had been a regular when I was in Singapore, but after moving to Chennai I have almost forgotten the game. I really miss the gang over there in S'pore. Please let me know, rpraba@yahoo.com , if you can accomodate a moderate player :)

    Am living in Thiruvanmiyur (Valmiki Nagar) with my family.

    Checked with Gandhi Nagar Club and it currently accepts Corporate membership only (3 laks).

    Regards,
    Prabakaran

    Gandhi Nagar has become 3 lackhs is it! They used to be 40k and asking for members and now...

    Indra Nagar club might be ok! They were 5k about 9 years ago...

    Best of luck with your search then!

    Cheers

    more places in chennai

    hello people,

    indira nagar club is now 30K one time fee and then 200 a month for use of badminton facility alone. but you need an introduction from an existing member to join.

    a good option are the courts within IIT - this is pay per use, but is always so crowded, even very late in the evening.
