    An update: I managed to find the Sky Club in Ahyeon elementary school. The entrance is a bit tricky especially since it gets dark pretty early in Seoul these days. I printed this picture from oldhand's response and used that to get there. Initially I sent them a message through their website but there was no response so I decided to drop in directly today evening and request for their permission to play. The members were very kind to admit me in and I start playing from this week. They also offered me a nice hot cup of coffee, a piece of chocolate to celebrate Pepero Day and asked me to watch a few games

    I could not go last earlier since I forgot to bring my ankle brace and went on a hunt last weekend to find a brace locally. I found the McDavid ankle brace in a sports shop around Dongdaemun stadium. It was quite a hunt, as I went to almost 20 shops around the stadium and came up empty. I was about to give up and go to the train station, when I saw a shop called "Multi Sports Shop" right in front of Exit 4 (I think) of Dongdaemun History & Culture Park station and decided to give it one last try. And I got lucky there! I also saw quite a few shops there selling Yonex, Wilson & Victor racquets - I did not inquire on the prices though.

    Hi Event. I apologise for the horrendously late reply. LOL
    I was actually off this site for like 2 years as I found a friend who would take me to Shindorim to play every Saturday. Lol. I didn't search for the rest as you said, it is quite difficult if one does not speak Korea. I speak basic Korean, so that's how I got around. But I'm currently not in Seoul. It has been 5 months since I was there. But with the MERs outbreak and such. I have doubts I want to go any time soon

    There is very little I can help you with. As I have said, I have essentially never played in Seoul. The key would be to find a public gym and I don't believe there is any near Namdaemun. Since most of those on this list are schools, you can't guess when they will be open on a Sunday. Therefore, I would take the subway and try to get out to Magok, Gyenam, or maybe Wah-uu (Wow?) near Shinchon Stn. They are public and should be open all day on Sunday. I have no idea about the level or about how crowded they would be.
