    3. Sai Chowk, New Sangvi
    4. Pradhikaran
    5. Shivaji housing society, Off Senapati Bapat Road

    Hi,
    Is there a cost/time attached to each of these courts?
    Specifically, I am looking for this information for -
    1. Prakash Padukone Badminton academy, Modern Colony
    2. Shivaji housing society, Off Senapati Bapat Road

    Also how much earlier should i book the courts if i want a 2 hr session on a weekend?
    If you have played at any of these courts, please let me know on these.
    Thanks in advance!

    Prakash padukone academy usually picks people who played/playing in Nationals

    The court at senapati bapat road has to be booked early
    it charges 75/hr and there are two wooden courts available in there
    you need to contact them directly for the Slot

    Parag , I would have to search for the numbers . Leme check . The problem would be like for any enquiry you have to essentially visit the Sports Complex ( Mon- Sat ) during working hrs : 10:00 - 05:00 .

    Just a personal experience , the time slots available would be something like late mornings / late evening something like 11:00 in the mornings and as late as 10:30 in the evenings

    Rest would be your luck . Would search for the number and share

    balewadi sports complex

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shree_Shiv_Chhatrapati_Sports_Complex

    chk this link. I wen to the complex today, its Huge.. Even the badminton court are world class. Only hitch i guess is whats mentioned below by panky. Registration fees is little on higher side (around Rs.500-700 / month) and the erratic slots available.
