Do we have to join a club to play badminton in Seoul?
I'm travelling in Seoul with my colleagues. We all like playing badminton. But as foreigners here, it's hard to find a place.
Do you know where we could play near Gangnam station? Whether the only way to play badminton in Seoul is to find and join a club? Could we just order a court and play only with my friends?

I have addressed this question in response to negon's very similar query here. If you want a place with an admission fee, where you and your friends can show up at an off-peak hour, pay, and monopolize one court, I don't know of anywhere in the Gangnam area to do that. I know of only two places in Seoul like that: the Gyenam gym and the Magok gym. On the other hand, there seem to be plenty of such facilities in the outlying areas, such as Goyang, Yongin, and Suwon.

There's a little more information here but it just shows that most of the gyms in the Gangnam area are in schools and are rented by clubs. As for paying to reserve a court, I've heard of it being done but not often and it wouldn't work in a gym a club has already rented from a school. Taehyeon might be able to tell you more on that.
