Can everyone play in OSU?
Thank you for your information.
It says that OSU is available to play badminton. Can everyone not student use the university facility? And what day or time is good to play badminton? Since I have no badminton player in USA except for my wife, I want to go when there are many players.
This is Japanese just arrived here. I feel difficulties in English conversation. But I want to make friends through playing badminton. Please give me any information to play badminton. Thank you.

Worthington Recreation Center also Good Place to Play
We started playing in the badminton league at the Worthington Recreation Center last year and still play there. They divide the group up by skill level and you play with different people every week. We play on the weekends but I have also heard that people practice at other recreation centers in the area during the week, (Dublin, Columbus, and OSU).
The instructor at worthington is Derek Lee and he would be a good person to ask about practice locations in the Columbus area.

I am moving into the Columbus, OH region in the beginning of May and was wondering about any places to play badminton in or around the area. I have been through some posts here which were a little "old". Just wanted to find out the current places if any to play.

firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

Welcome to Columbus OH.
There are 5 places that I know where you can play badminton in this area.
The Worthington Rec Center link above is still valid, check the Spring/Summer 2010 brochure once you get to the page.
Another place is Dublin Rec Center, http://www.dublin.oh.us/recreation/
Still another place is Woodward Park Rec Center, http://parks.columbus.gov/Facility.aspx?id=26096
All 3 above are adult leagues, registration is required, runs about 10 weeks per season
At Carriage Place Rec Center, it's open play, it can get crowded at times
As for OSU (Ohio State University), I’m not familiar enough to provide any information
03-24-2010, 09:40 PM #13
thanks a lot for the great and useful info. I look forward eagerly to playing in Columbus.
03-25-2010, 07:20 AM #14
yw, sure glad the info gathered comes in handy.

Started playing in the Dublin Recreational Center league.
As far as OSU is concerned, played there a couple of times. Here are the details:
1 time pass - $10
Quarterly Pass - $144
The level of play is pretty good in OSU.
The next quarter I think starts in the last week of June.
Do let me know if anyone is planning on going to OSU to play.
06-14-2010, 12:12 PM #16
Heh, so you have started playing. That's good.
Just to add to the OSU info.
I played there last Tuesday, that was my first time playing there.
Bought a pass for $85. That's a guest pass for 10 entry with no expiration date.
Also, there's parking fee to consider.
06-14-2010, 12:18 PM #17
Cool. Yeah forgot to add the parking fee.
