    Ahhh, that question is deadly in the markham area . It really depends what kind of player you are. If you enjoy working hard and having the opportunity of intensive training, I suggest Lee's. However, if u enjoy a more fun atmosphere with more strategic coaching, Mandarin is good. Both clubs have a fairly good reputation, but if u join one, don't join the other after

    Judging by your age in your profile and assuming that it's true, I really don't think it matters which club you join. However, if you have children who want to play competitively, well, that's another question. Search up the old threads. There are TONS on Mandarin vs. Lee's related stuff.

    I want to play hard and i want to improve my skills (regardless the age from my profile,which is true), but don't want to take any coaching lesson (it's already to much for me to pay membership). i want to play a lot, not just have a fun. And i'm gonna be alone and the problem is how to play a lot if you don't have a partner and don't know anybody.

    Thanks for any suggestion!

    I have checked the website of Mandarin. Looks impressive. I don't know if Lee has a site. You may wish to check both site up and compare. If you golf, then Mandarin may be an option because it is affiliated with the upscale Mandarin Golf & Country Club. Good luck.

    every consider rec centres?? you don't have to play at a club to gain skills... especially if you're not going to take lessons.... i've seen many amazing players play at rec centres regularly...

    for recreational centres, you may want to check out the community centres near you, they may require a regristation fee and/or age requirement, at most places they have a time set for adults/family time to play =/ .. so much more times for adults than teens >.< .. the various centres i been to.. there are differnt levels of compeition and there are always the odd person out without a partner sitting on the bench.

    Thanks Trance, for the site on lees badminton. I was searching for it, guess didn't search hard enough.

    Nanashi : rec centre? You mean like those in the recreation guide that comes to our door step every season? I've been to one and it was very well ran but the level of play is recreational. Perhaps there some centre offering competitive level.

    Maralex: you may wish to check your municipal website for the guide. Also, like what jus anothr grl suggested, search old threads in this forum.

    Good luck. FYI, I am also looking for a place to play. I may narrow it down to Parkway Atheletic Club.

    Where I could find info about Parkway Atheletic Club? I've searched the net, but couldn't find somethinng about membership etc.
    About rec. centers... I've played in some of them, but now I'm looking for something more persistent and more flexible with the time (I have sometimes free daytime).
    Thanks, anyway!

    You should check out various clubs in the Toronto Region. Check the Ontario Badminton Association site, unfortunately I don't remember it.

    I know I'm kinda late, but I remember where Parkway Atheletic club is now lol. It's at Leslie and Hwy 7 but I don't know if they have a website although i'm sure they do. The place has nice facilities in general but the gym is awful lighting. It has a proshop there too. And btw, one of the regional Yonex distributors goes there hehe. I know him and got my SHB-99s for cheap price from him
