    Default Badminton court in Columbus, OH area

    I have searched threads and noticed that some people are looking for places to play in Columbus, Ohio.

    Well, one of the best places to play in Columbus is in OSU.
    (It's open every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.)

    Just come to the larkins hall, room 160, there are 6 courts with nets. You just need to bring in your racquets and shuttles and you will be ready to go.

    for more information, please use search or reply.

    Unhappy 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.

    Yes, anyone is allowed to use the facility. (Free for OSU people, visitors can buy either a 1-day pass ($5) or a 3-months pass (around $70 or so.....I don't remember the price)

    Too bad you're only three years too late to play with him.

    Good luck in your search for a doubles partner.

    Smile 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).

    http://www.worthington.org/services/communitycenter.cfm

    The instructor at worthington is Derek Lee and he would be a good person to ask about practice locations in the Columbus area.

    Hi,
    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.

    Regards,

    Yes, as far as I know Derek Lee still runs a badminton league, clinic and occasional open gyms at the Worthington Rec Center. He may even know of some other spots in the area, such as in Dublin and Columbus. You can contact him at ckdlee01@hotmail.com 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
    http://parks.columbus.gov/Facility.aspx?id=26062

    As for OSU (Ohio State University), I’m not familiar enough to provide any information

    Hi,
    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.
    Regards,

    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.
