Yes, checked the web site:
Depending on where your live, there're others you can go besides the ones SC listed.
Also, check out and join the Seattle Badminton Yahoo Group which will have the
latest gym hours/closures information also.

I just recently moved to Seattle, I play every thursday at the Renton community center, however it would be nice to have regular partners to play with! Let me know if you are interested.

I have not played at any other places in Seattle, could anyone give some insight on some good places to play?

Welcome to Seattle.
Highline High School: (mon/thurs night during school year)
Level: all skill levels
8 courts, low ceiling, not great lighting
Talk to Steve Ellis, he'll set up game for you.
North Sea-tac community center (mon/wed/thur night, Sat 12-4)
Level: all (mon/wed/thur) more advanced players on Sat
4 courts, high ceiling
St Edward (thur evening)
Level: more advanced players
4 courts, ceiling (ok, a little low), not great lighting
We're also in the process of having a dedicated fulltime badminton facility
in Bellevue area. I'll announce it later, looks like a go so far (lease should
be signed by this week).
BCD tournament is coming up in early December. As I mentioned previously,
signed up the Seattle Badminton Yahoo Group, you'll recieve the latest
badminton related news in Seattle/WA area.

SCChang: dang Sean, are you sure you live in Irvine and not Seattle? Good info.

Does anyone know if the Bellevue - Pro Sports Club is a good place to play badminton?
Added: Those places which have Badminton on Friday, which one is considered the popular one. I never really played badminton in the Seattle area so I'm definately interested in playing tonight.

I have asked them by email about this and they said that it cost about $200 to be a member for a year. It is quite expensive and therefore I will never go there to play badminton.

Is that ONLY for badminton? Or does 200$/yr include access to the other facilities?
10-06-2005, 04:35 PM #16
The $100 to $200 (don't know the exact figure) is the annual fee for badminton
in additional to the regular membership dues (initation fee plus monthly due).
Check out their website membership info:
The badminton fee does include shuttlecocks, there're 8 courts. The visibility
is not great and it's fairly crowded most of time.

From what I've heard, Bellevue Pro club initiation fee is like 3K what what the people at the North Sea Tac who played badminton there said.
