    Whereabouts in general do you live? There are a few places you can drop in and play depending on your location. Also, like B-M-S said, search the Canada West places to play forum for more information and suggestions.

    In the chinatown area, within a few minutes bus ride either directions you can get to Britannia, Coal Harbor, RoundHouse, Trout Lake, Hastings, even Renfrew. Each of these community centers offer badminton on different days and times.

    A little further by skytrain will get you to centers like Cameron, Bonsor, Collingwood.

    A pleasant sea-bus ride to North Vancouver can get you to John Braithwaite Community center.

    A bus ride up to Killarney, or over to Kerrisdale, or even Kitsilano.

    Lots of places in and around town!

    Try the Saturday afternoon at Britannia - Gym C. From chinatown, just catch the Victoria bus and you're there in 10 minutes. It's from 1:15 to 5 pm. There's Friday evening badminton at Brit as well, but this coming Friday the gym is booked for a basketball tournament.

    Hope to see you on a Saturday.

    Collingwood Neighbourhood House on Sundays 10am - 1pm offers "Advance Players Only" badminton, organized by our very own Break-My-Strings.

    If you're in Chinatown, hop on the Skytrain (Stadium Station or Science World Station), get off at Joyce Station, walk one block south and you're there.
