    Default Traveling to Beijing

    I'm going to Beijing next month and wondering if someone could tell me where is a good place to play around Chaoyang District? Also, where can I go to buy genuine Yonex equipment?

    Thank you

    Can you read/speak Chinese?
    there are lots of badminton clubs in Chaoyang district, and you can get genuine Yonex and other types of rackets everywhere.

    if you have other problem, please contact me keendom2004@hotmail.com

    Hi Keendom,

    I don't know Chinese but I have a friend who does. Please recommend a couple of places if you don't mind.

    Thanks

    1st place, locates in the 2nd foreign language university, at east Chaoyang district. you can refer to http://www.citychinese.com/bbs3/disp...=278906&page=1 for more information

    2nd place, 三元桥阳光球馆, at north Chaoyang district, please refer to http://bbs.sports.sina.com.cn/?h=/g_...3D4258&g=4&n=1 for contact info.

    It's convenient. I don't mind renting the court. My level is around B in the U.S. I don't know if that helps. I play better single than double.

    hey I was wondering if there are any air-conditioned courts that I can rent here in beijing? I live at the end of line 1 subway at siwai but basically can go anywhere in the city... thanks! As to the courts at Kerry centre, can non-guests rent them? Since it's at the Kerry centre, maybe it's air-conditioned?

    You don't have to stay at the hotel to rent the court. I'm not sure if it's air conditioned or not but when I was there it felt fine. You can call the hotel and ask them. http://www.shangri-la.com/beijing/kerrycentre/en/
    I'll be in Beijing again middle of June let me know if you'd like to play.

    I think it's cement floor with some green stuff coating on the top, kind of like tennis court surface. It's not rubber mat. I have picture of the court, email me if you are interested. n_kiatttinant@hotmail.com

    To play there you have to call the fitness center to reserve a court but be sure to arrange to have someone there to play with you otherwise you will waste 100RMB.
