Are there any stores in HCMC/Saigon that sell authentic badminton rackets and shoes? I might be going to VN this summer to visit my grandfather's grave (not sure if that's it translates to English xD) I'm not really sure about what district my family lives in though or where we'll be staying at since my mom and my family in VN aren't really on good terms right now.

I'd like to buy some rackets and shoes to bring back to the USA. I'd probably be staying in VN for several days to a week at most since we're just visiting my grandfather's grave and my mom doesn't really support me in badminton...Haha.

firstname.lastname@example.org for details, then I may arrange for you if possible! In case your players in high grade, I will try to arrange for you to play with Ho Chi Minh City team (Nguyen Tien Minh' team-Top 10 BWF ranking), the head coach of HCMC team now is Asep Suharno, ex-coach for Singapore team in MS!

email@example.com . I am not sure I can arrange for you or not because I don't know what is your free time and where you stay in HCMC! Waiting for your detail by email.

HCMC is huge and it depends on where you are going to stay. Your intermediate standard is very subjective and one cannot make a judgement unless one’s know your standard. Badminton is most popular in the evenings and all day weekends.There are indoor courts at Cercle Sportiff (I think it is called Cung Van Hoa Lao Dong in Vietnamese), Ky Hoa, Madam Curie school, Thanh Thai and Dao Duy Anh in Phu Nhuan district and there are more places to play further away from the city in Binh Thanh district.
These places have lots of varying standard of play from beginners to district players.
So I suggest you turn up at one of these places. Sit and enjoy the play. If there is a group of players that is to your playing standard, introduce yourself and let them know your standard is similar to theirs, and ask if you can play with them. If yes, you are in luck. If not… well try another place.
Otherwise there are the open air courts in the parks and they are very popular.
You don’t want to travel too far to play because of the traffic jam.
Hope the info helps

I would recommend that you take the young players for a holiday there. There is so much to see...and historically and cultural it is quite facinating and its food is always interesting. Because you are going in a group, you should get the service of a local travel agent in Singapore to organize the logistics…book air-tickets, hotels, airport pick up, tours, sightseeing and meals. Someone got to do all these things.
As for badminton, you did not indicate the playing standard . As Hungle said, you can play with the HCMC team ( half of the national team) but you should consider your own standard. It is harder to organize friendlies here compared to say Malaysia where there are literally hundreds of clubs alone in KL ( just look at the sticky posts) or in the case of Hong Kong, each of the private flats have their own indoor aircon courts. My advice is just leave your badminton racket at home and just enjoy your holidays in Vietnam. Cheers.

I have never lived in Vietnam but I have been there many many imes over the years for work… mostly HCMC. Because I like to play the game, I bring my racket when travelling and try to find a place to play. I have played in all these places in HCMC including Pho Quang in Phu Nhuan district which recently closed its door (turned it to a university campus). Very sad indeed for badminton players. Wonder where all the hundreds of players are going to play.
I try my best to guide keen badminton players especially to find a place to play be it in Sydney or elsewhere. Some people just need a game of badminton as part of their every day life and get a bit of exercise or get to meet interesting people in the badminton court. I cannot speak a word of Vietnamese ( except for the basic like good day or thank you). But one need not know the language to play the game… sign language will do. I will be visiting HCMC this June and hopefully I can have a game or two now that the courts in Pho Quang which is nearest to my hotel are gone.
