    Default Places to play in Saipan?

    I might be visiting my aunt in Saipan over the summer. Where would I be able to play?

    From what I heard, it is a very beautiful place. I am still deciding and so are my parents if whether to visit Saipan or back home to Paranaque in Manila, Philippines. From a badminton perspective, Philippines is the place to go because as from what my parents say they don't know of places to play in Saipan. From a tourist's perspective, I would visit Saipan as I have already visited some of the sites in Philippines.

    Badminton taking root on
    island

    By Ron Ige • Pacific Daily News • April 29, 2010

    The Guam National Badminton Federation is being
    established, and its leaders are looking for people
    who are interested in seeing this sport grow on
    island.

    The federation needs all comers, whether they are
    recreational players, former competitors or coaches.

    "At the recent Oceania National Olympic Committee
    annual meeting, I was approached by the
    development officer of the Oceania Badminton
    Federation," said Sandra Low, board member of the
    Guam National Olympic Committee. "The sport has
    taken off in Saipan and Palau, and given the similar
    demographics of Guam and those two regions, it
    would be reasonable to say there probably exists a
    core group here on Guam for which this new
    federation will be able to serve."

    With the full support of the Guam National Olympic
    Committee and the Oceania Badminton Federation,
    Guam can expect to receive not only training s
    upport, but also equipment subsidies. A two-week
    development camp already is scheduled for October.

    "We hope to target schools for the inclusion of
    badminton in their physical education programs, as
    well as to create clubs to enable friendly
    competition and physical enjoyment," Low said.

    For more information, contact Low at 688-8860; or
    e-mail her at lagusefan@yahoo.com
