    Default Play badminton in HCMC VIETNAM

    One of these days staying in Ho Chi Minh city for business,studying or traveling, if you need, you could play badminton at one of many inhouse courts in:
    1. The Cultural Housing of Labor, 55B, Nguyen Thi Minh Khai st, dist 3. Three wooden-floor courts.
    2. The Ky Hoa club on campus of Ky Hoa hotel, Ba Thang Hai st, dist 10.Four carpeted courts.
    3. The Rang Dong club, 353 alley,Nguyen Trong Tuyen st, dist Tan Binh.Three carpeted courts.
    4. The Phu Tho club, 1 Ly Thuong Kiet st,dist 11. Ten wooden-floor courts.
    5. The 7th Military Region club, Hoang Van Thu st, dist Phu Nhuan. Four wooden-floor courts
    ...
    The badminton playing fee in HCMC may be cheapest in the world, about 1.5 USD per hour (not including shuttle cock). Further, if you stay there in a long time, you could register to become a member of above clups.

    Hi Mr Lee

    How about some pics of places you played and visited?

    And do tell us more about your stay there. Now that budget airlines are available, I'm sure many Singaporeans (and Malaysians) are keen to visit if badminton can form part of our itinerary! Any recommendations of where to stay and the associated costs?

    Post Places of play

    Hi Loh,
    OK. I used to stay at Su Van Hanh near junction of Huong Vuong at District 5. This place is near An Duong Plaza. Basically district 5 is a Chinatown areas where there are more Vietnamese chinese reside. They tend to speak cantonese more than mandarin.Just next to No:65, Ann Duong Voung, just besides the Kindergarten, there is four Indoor Doom shaped badminton courts. U have to be alert to see the word "Cau Long" which means shuttle if I am not wrong.U have to walk through the lane n pass the basketball court before u see the badminton court venue which have a sliding door.I used to play at this place and also at Ky Hoa Hotel compound's indoor badminton courts. I also played at 553, nguyen Tri Phuong at District 10, and also at No:2, Nguyen Van Chu.at district 1.At Phu Tho Club, there are 12 badminton courts.I will try to take some pictures of these places when I am up there. I will be there by this coming Monday 24/10/05 n v be back in Spore by 29/10/05. Hope that my digicam work! Any Bc members staying near District 1 or 10 or 11 can pm me if u want to play. I v try to arrange for u.
    That is provided I am up there.

    Thankyou for the info.

    Do you normally go up with friends or you go there for business. And who do you play with if you don't have your own group. Is it alright just to join any group playing there?

    I see that you'll be going again next week. Are you a frequent traveller there? Care to tell us how much it costs for the basics like return air fare, hotel rate (like the one you are staying, what sort of basic facilities, are they ok?), internal transportation, food. I guess they'll be much cheaper than in Spore.

    Is is possible to arrange a friendly match with BC Singapore, if we are able to interest members here to make a trip there?

    Hi Yvonne,

    Your hotel is in Dong Khoi district ( the HCMC CBD).There are some places to play. The normal rule as in any foreign country is to turn up at the court and see if the people playing matches your standard ( depanding on your level of skills). You can ask them politely if you can join them for a game or two. I find the Vietnamese most friendly and don't mind you joining them for a game. It's best you bring along your own shuttle as your contribution.
    Personally I prefer Ky Hoa Park badminton courts.It is a huge park but with lots of sporting facilities. It's about 25000 dongs by taxi. It's alwasy busy after 5.00 and you can see if the players playing are to your level of play. If not, you can always watch people play badminton or tennis ( there are 15 10 tennis courts including covered courts), go for a walk in the park, have the racket restrung at the sport shop, or have a meal there or do some shopping at the night market near the park or at Cach Mach Trang Tam/Ba Thang Hai area.
    The downside is that the Vietnamese don't speak much English and most of the time you play the game is using sign language.If you are interested in Ky Hoa Park badminton hall, let me know. I can direct you to the gang I used to play when I was there. Alternatively most mornings there are thousands of players playing badminton in the open air in parks at 6.00a.m onwards. See the standard and ask if you can join them for a game.
    For further infomraiton, you can always contact me at permanis@hotmail.com
