I've been looking for lessons near palo alto in the bay area, and its getting really tough. They're either full or they stopped accepting students because registration has ended. Thanks

what's cubberly? foothill i assume you mean foothill college?
i know Mission College have "classes" but they are more like pay to play type of classes. the "you learn by playing" type.

Decathlon added badminton a couple of years ago, I think. It's really a basketball gym that has been converted to accomodate (4?) badminton courts for both open gym & training. It's OK but the air conditioning can be quite annoying at times. Rudy (Suehartono?) has been coaching there for a while now. He appears to be an excellent coach... I've not trained with him, but I have watched him play, watched him train others, & even played with him & have learned quite a bit from doing so.
It's helpful to know a club member to gain access to the open gym. Iv'e gone in quite a few times for both tennis & badminton... mostly on free guest passes. (I've even gotten in w/o a guest pass a couple of times). Non-members can take the training & participate in league play for a fee. Not certain, but I think that the following sched is up-to-date:
Unless I'm mistaken, the badminton gym at the main campus at Foothill College is closed for renovations for a while. They do have classes at an off-campus location... Cubberly. I think that Cubberly is used both by Community Education as well as by Foothill College. Foothill calls it their Middlefield campus. Altho' there are badminton classes there, I don't believe that a whole lot of teaching goes on. (Arno Dominguez, however, is a really nice guy).

Ruddy is a great coach.
. I have trained with Ruddy for over a year and and I find him the best of the 4 professional coaches I have tried.
Rudy (Suehartono?) has been coaching there for a while now. He appears to be an excellent coach... I've not trained with him, but I have watched him play, watched him train others, & even played with him & have learned quite a bit from doing so.
