    Thumbs up Recreational Badminton in Thornhill

    Hello Everyone,

    Some of my friends got together and started to rent a gym in a community centre. See below:

    Time: 5pm to 7pm every Saturday

    Location:
    Thornhill Community Centre - at 7755 Bayview Avenue, on the northeast corner of Bayview Avenue and John
    Street. The entrance to the gym is on Greenlane (one street north of John, beside Foodbasics).

    Guest fee cost: $5.00

    There are three courts and on average about twelve people show up.
    Range of players are from beginner to advance.
    RSL feather birds are supplied.
    If you want to play with plastic you will have to bring your own.

    PM me if you want more information.

    The floor is new, there is a lot of space around the courts, high ceiling and good lighting.

    yeah it's true! i checked out this place this past weekend. Though they also brought some plastic (or maybe it was a member who brought them, not sure) . Seem like only the int/adv players liked to play feather, while the beginners actually prefer plastic. So the feathers didn't get used up too fast.

    Yes, seriously RSL birds are supplied.

    Usually a slightly damaged but playable bird is used to warm up. Then a new bird is used for the game. We supply as many birds it takes to finish a set of games with in reason.

    Default Set up games.

    Yes, Magdrury we can set you up with games. There is always people at our club willing to play a game. If I'm there I will even team up with you. I'm only an average player thou. If you are an advance player, I could talk to the more advance players and set one up for you.

    Regards,

    D-man

    Hi D-man,
    is this facility open year-round? I'm curently tied to another club on Sat (8-10) but for $5 I guess it's worth to try out... should I let you know before I come by?

    Hello Jayda,

    Just drop in and introduce yourself. We play from 5 PM to 7 PM and I think we will be running through the summer. Let me check with the organizer and I will get back to you.

    Cheers,

    Default Usual crowd

    Hello HappyTA5,

    We usually have around 16 to 20 show up now. The system we have is play one game and get off the court with a five minute warm up.

    Cheers,

    Default Update.

    Hello all,

    Changes: We no longer supply Feather Birds. If you want to play with feather birds you will have to bring your own. Some players like myself usually bring their own birds.

    We now supply Mavis 300 and Mavis 350 plastic birds.

    Cheers,

    D-man
