Interested in starting a new club in westchester NY? Please read this!!!!
I have recieved a number of emails from people who are interested in and are looking to start a club in Westchester. I have tried my best to get in contact with everyone who has emailed me. But if I have missed anyone, I apologize for that. I live in Yonkers. There are several high schools and churches here. I had recieved an email from a member here saying that there is a group looking for a place to play. Once I hear from them, all of us will contact the high schools and churches here to see if we can rent a gym. I would prefer it to be on either saturday or sunday rather than the weekdays since I work full time and go to school in the city. But we will take everyone else's needs and concerns into consideration as well. I myself play badminton very well and I am sure we will find others who play just as well. Once everything is set up, we can organize the hours in such a way that if anyone is looking for coaching, we can provide them that as well at no cost. I really am interested in starting a club, preferrably in Yonkers. So please contact me via email at email@example.com. I am sure if all of us pitch in in terms of time, effort and ofcourse money, we can start a great club! I look forward to hearing from you!

I contacted board of ed. here in Yonkers and was told that they rent out school gyms only to a non profit organization with insurance . But I will keep looking. If there's anyone out there who has found a venue or is in the process of looking for a place to play in Yonkers westchester or any nearby area please let me know. Although I am in the City every Tuesday, I dont want to play there. I have been to NYCB but it was too crouded.
I really hope we find something SOON!

did you try contacting the city recreational dept? (or whatever is equivalent)
you can propose to them such arrangement that you will help to run the gym under their umbrella. that way, the renter will be the rec dept, you run the gym, everybody will be happy... some gyms here are run that way.

I know I'm a couple of month late, but what's the status on that new club?
I'm in White Plains and I'd definitely enjoy playing Badminton. I had my racket sitting in my closet for years, it's about time to undust it

Hi Robina. How have you been? Are you still practicing badminton and where are you playing? Are you still looking for a place to play?

Coming out of retirement?Originally Posted by tony_wp
So how many years has it been since you last played badminton? Would you be undusting a wooden racquet by any chance? What model is it lol. Anyways how did you get into badminton and where are you playing or have played.

I have to check if the racket is in wood. Don't remember
I'm not playing now, but I'm looking for place to play. My problem is transportation. I'm not really mobile.

Robina did you start up that club in Westchester? We had a club last year up in Spring Valley which was kind of fun, but I haven't confirmed if it's restarting this year or not.
I will be looking for a place to play possibly this year, and am looking at CT if Spring Valley doesn't reopen. Anyone playing in CT, and how far from say Brewster NY, since I know how far I am from Brewster.

Last year we got only Tuesday night, but I was told that this year we were going to bid for two or more nights. Spring Valley is not that far from the city, but it depends where you live. It's just across from the Tap bridge about 20 mins or so, I believe. I don't know. It takes me about an hour, maybe a little more from where I live to get to the club, and I live about 2 hours from getting all the way to NYC when I have to go there.
Brewster NY, is right off interstate 84, a few minutes from the border of Connecticut. Since I would take that route to Connecticut, I would probably be within a fair distance to get to Ridgefield, or Greenwich, but presently I think Fairfield would be too far of a hike.
However, I may be moving shortly, closer to Connecticut border. So we'll see. If Spring Valley opens again, that will be my best bet, but I would like to see that we get some players out there.
If you need another reference to approximately where Spring Valley is you can also use Nanuet. It's at least as close as Greenwich, and closer than Rdigefield and Fairfield, as far as I can tell. But that's distance, I don't know about time.
