Thread: Play badminton in HCMC VIETNAM
07-08-2010, 11:01 PM #171
I can't see a badminton court in District 1 other than the Madam Curie School in Le Quy Don Road which District 3. Maybe you should get in touch with those who has posted in the forum and welcome ppl (Mr. Hieupt has been very helpful in this forum) who might be able to arrange a game at their courts.
However it would be your interest to first see the playing standard meet your requirements or vice versa.Otherwise if standard too different , both parties won't enjoy the game. As you say you are average and above average, it's a matter of finding players of the same standard. Good luck.

I am planning to visit Vietnam for the month of August. My parents told me i will be staying in District 5 with my aunt. I'm 21 years old and my younger brother is 16. We both are not good (I've been playing recreational for about 6 years and my brother less than 2) but we would like to experience it here in Vietnam. Any Recommendation or suggested place we can play some friendly (and maybe a little competitive games?) . [I also hope its not hard to get around there area]

I will be in HCMC the last half of November and was hoping to play at least a little badminton while I'm in town. I'm a little above average player when my knees hold-up. We will be staying in different parts of the city thoughout the trip so I don't mind traveling half hour or so to get in a few hours of play. Any court ideas would be helpful.

That might work out great. The one Saturday that I am sure we will be in HCMC, Nov.20, we will be staying near Dam Sen Park which does not look to be too far from Tan Binh District. Do you have an address or directions for the courts?

Well, like most people here, I'm looking for a place to play badminton on a regular basic (if possible). I will be in Ho Chi Minh for a couple of months, until march, and I work from home so I'm quite fexible with my schedule. I also know a few motorbikes drivers who can pretty much bring me anywhere in town. I still don't have badminton equipment (I didn't bring those from Canada) but I'll buy some if I can find a place to play. Is there still a badminton group playing in District 10 on saturday mornings? I'd say my level of play is in the high range of intermediate, but it's all relative isnt it? I need to sweat a bit or I'll get fat with all the good food here in Vietnam!

We will try to add some badminton to our already long " must do" list.
Can you recommend a place to get a couple of rackets restrung or do you know the going rate in HCM for a string job if I bring my own string?

You can go to Mai Loan sport shop in Nguyen Trai Street(don't remember exactly address), District 5. It's next to 2nd Central Sport and Gym University and back of Dentistry Department of Ho Chi Minh Medicine University, hope you'll find out it easily. The quality of stringing in there is very good, Tien Minh(as you may khow)-Vietnam No1 badminton player(World No9) often string there before partcipate in a tournament. Finally, you don't be worried about the price, it's not so expensive but absolutely cheaper than stringing in USA

Thanks again for all the great information. My wife is vietnamese so with her help finding the shop should not be a problem.
I hope we have a chance to meet you on the 20th.

Any idea on where to play during week evenings? I will explore the earlier suggestions in the thread, but not sure if they're still valid. I'll go to Marie Curie school at dinner time and see if I can find the person organizing badminton.
Also, I finally got a Yonex racket and had it strung (is that the correct verb?) with BG65, but I'd like to know if anyone has a suggestion where I can find 'ok' badminton shoes that are not so expensive. I'll try the bunch of sport shops close to the New World Hotel later today, but maybe someone has a better suggestion for shoes?

Where did you find some shoes? Are they any cheaper than buying in Canada or US?
