We need people to play at the San Jose State open gym!
I went again today and there was only 5 of us! 6 courts and only 5 people? We need more people than that! Come and play at San Jose State!
Room SPX 44A
$1 for students
$3 for non-students!

Maybe there's a problem with the gym itself - ceiling too low?
That is really cheap though. I'd go to play singles the whole night.

actually, i don't know why. probably because no one knows about it!
and traditionally most of the players there play with plastic. that rules out 75% of the badminton population...

But if you take your own shuttles, you'd have no problem playing singles.
Even take a bag of shuttles and do some training.
When is my next trip to SF???

I was dead after 30 mins but pretended to be like Sun Jun in the 97 WC final - have the 'never say die' attitude. I was triple dead after my match because I was trying to break the opponents rhythm when I myself didn't have good rhythm. It was totally exhausting.
Training all the way. That's what I need.
That SJ gym sounds so good being so empty - even if the hall is not that good, I would go and spend an hour just practising tumbling netshots.

actually sj state gym is pretty nice, i go on weekends, i just dont have time to go on weekdays, especially around those times. Majority of us use feather, atleast.. during the weekends =/ , i duno about the weekdays.. never been. But with soo many open courts , its perfect to practice , and not be afraid of someone's perception of you ^_- .

Hey, too bad, I was just there last week (San Leandro). What are the driving directions to the gym? for the next time Im in the area.
You guys should come to Manila, badminton is the big thing now. We have gyms all over the place with real courts, taraflex/mondoflex on wood--and not just converted basketball courts. Much easier on the feet and knees.

I was wondering if SJSU gym is empty cuz of Bingtan, I kno alot of my friends go to Bingtan on Wensdays, when they used to go to SJSU...since all the top bay area players have migrated to Bintang...wish I could go to either one...but I have to work nights, plus its pretty far away...probably be empty till HS badminton season...last time I played their it was packed, last year

The room to play is SPC 44A. The SPC hall is located close to the lower left hand corner by Yoshihiro Uchida hall. KEEP IN MIND people that there is FREE PUBLIC PARKING in San Jose State after 6pm! So since open gym STARTS at 7pm, you can parking at the free lots located on 3rd st, 4th st and San Fernando.
This is a link to the main campus map:
Here is an enclosed link on where to park and where to go.
If you have anymore questions, feel free to PM me. Heck, I might even do a video recording on how to get here and post it on the forums..ahhahah
On a side note, when you parking in the free parking, you will get a parking ticket to get into the structure. Then, when you come back, there is a machine where you can pay for your parking. Since parking is FREE after 6pm, just put your ticket into the machine and it will immediately validate the ticket with no cost from you. Then, just head out, put the ticket into the machine and go home!
