    There are scattered Chinese churches along the Highway 6 stretch that have Badminton courts, a few of the players also frequent Fonde. So ask around next time you're at Fonde's.

    Why does the "Bird Flu" affect the court fees? (unless you are talking about the court fees includes the shuttles?

    From $7->$12 is simply just the court fees. You need to bring in your own shuttles to play.

    I will be staying in OMNI Hotel-Katy Freeway for 2 week (30/11/2008-11/12/2008), wondering if there is any places that I can watch people play badminton near the hotel area.

    Do I have to be a member to be able to enter to the badminton center and watch or play badminton?
