    Hey Mojoe. Welcome to Vancouver! I'm sure you'll love the badminton scene here.

    In Richmond, the best badminton facility is arguably ClearOne Badminton Center. Check them out at http://www.clearonebadminton.com . You should also look into Cambie Community Center and Richmond Badminton Club.

    If you have access to a vehicle, I would strongly encourage you to come to Britannia Secondary / Community Center on Fridays from 7 - 10pm. Collingwood Neighbourhood House at Joyce / Kingsway / E41st on Sundays from 12 to 2:30, I believe, is also a good choice. The people who regularly play at these two places are quite good, and you'll definitely have a good time.

    I also play with a private group on Thursdays from 7 to 9pm in northeast Richmond near Highway 91 / Westminster Highway / Annacis Island. The players there come in a wide range of skill levels. If you're interested in giving that a try, please PM me as this group is by invitation only.

    I'll see you around!

    -Rick

    thanks u guys

    hey thanks for the reply guys,
    Traum, thanks a lot for the invitation, but Annacis Island is a bit too far for me since i dont have a car with me. For now, i think i'll stick with Clearone as it is within walking distance from where i live and that i dont have a car either. Maybe we can meet up at Clearone soon before school starts for me!

    Also, i think that you guys were right about Clearone, it really is a good facility. The best one that i've seen if i compare it to the ones in the GTA. I just went today for drop-in by myself and had a game with monica and this brown guy... got killed both games, but had to play in socks cuz my court shoes havent arrived yet... :(... Also talked with Darryl for a bit and he's really friendly. Only thing is that its not really a club so its kinda hard for me to go there to play in a group since i dont know anyone here yet. but all in all Clearone is a very very good facility, hard to find... but worth it once u get there!
