    Also, Tues from 7 pm - 10 pm is half price off admission. It's good if you're tight on money, but it's somewhat busy.

    Too bad, I go to Cardel Place sometimes but people only play with those they come with and court times are limited and more crowded especially on weekends.

    I am not a senior and I play there, too.

    It is a great place to practice your footwork technique since most of the time your partner won't be doing much to get the birdie unless it's hit directly to them(and not above them). =)

    Keep in mind, no hard smashes to the center of the court because chances are you will hit one of your opponents(whom for some reason stand in front of the net) straight in the face. LOL

    There are a few very good players there from time to time.

    Hello kasuya,

    I was there today, maybe we should meet up sometime. Maybe we have already played before. Good to hear from a fellow member.
