Actually you need to be a member to play at the Stadium. Its a world class indoor stadium, with world class players like me (tsk tsk just kidding).
The fee structure is like this Adults (one time non refundable fee of Rs.1000/), and a monthly recurring fee of Rs.1000/-. So initially when u join it would be Rs. 2000/- (nonref.fee+monthfee). Only the courts are provided and we need to bring our own shuttles and partners, if any.
Normally the membership get annulled if we abstain from the court for 2 months consecutively as per the stadium rules charter. So normally what i feel is that we need to intimate the coach in advance if we are unable to make it for 2 months, though no baddy lover can refrain himself for such long time.
For students below 15yrs., Rs.500/- monthly with a non refundable fee of Rs.1000/-, so they pay around 1500/- initially when they join.
How about the procedures at Nizam's club??

thanx for all that info.jes a few more things:
1.What are the timings?
2.Hows the quality of the game there?
3.Is it very crowded?New comers welcome there?
as for nizams,well either you hv to be a member of the place (memberships have been closed for ages now)or else u can play as temporary member if a permanent member introduces you.its 750 pm and a one time non refundable 1000.i play as a temporary member.

Oops sorry i 4got to mention those things, though I had them in my mind while replying earlier, guess it skipped my mind while typing...
1. 6AM-7:30AM (sometimes gets extended till 8AM), 4:30PM-6:30PM
2. Quality of game depends on your skills. Normally whats ur level of game? Maybe I would suggest that you visit the place once & check before you decide on the quality since it depends on the individual assessment.
3. Yes its crowded in the mornings, but evenings are comfy. Though I dont know what timings you prefer?? If its in the mornings not sure whether there are any openings or not. But there is always a chance to try ur luck. Newcomers are definitely welcome always. Existing groups do invite newcomers, but mind you there are politics involved in all walks of life, so dont get carried away in the initial stages.
PS: Also please do generate more requests to KWUN for starting a SUBFORUM -- "INDIA". I have earlier made requests on the same note but KWUN insisted that we need to generate more requests from users/guests for him to create a "INDIA" subforum. Inform all the contacts u have in this forum too pass on the same and do the needful.

I think I replied to ur private msg, hence not repeating again.

Maybe I was thinking on the same note.....yea will do as I keep seeing the players in action, at practice sessions, sometimes Indian camps.... I have the privilege of knowing some local coaches there....hence the proximity.

Is it possible for you to provide me with the procedure to join Gachibowli indoor stadium? Is it open for all?
06-15-2009, 12:10 PM #13
Yes, its open for all & anybody can join gachibowli indoor stadium, provided u take membership there. I guess the fee structure goes like this tentatively: Non refundable admission fee: Rs. 1000/- + Rs.1000/-(monthly fee). So basically u end up paying Rs. 2000/- for the first month and subsequent months u pay Rs.1000/month. Please confirm the fee structure once again with the stadium administrator or coach.

Sorry baddylover, coz I am piling you up with questions. Do you have any idea about the Gopichand academy? Can one play there? Its been quit a while since I played so I need to brush up and improve. What place do you think will be better Gopichand academy or Stadium? and what is the procedure at gopichand academy?
06-17-2009, 12:29 AM #16
never mind pal. gopichand academy is available too, but i'm not aware of the playing facilities nor the fee structure, but one thing is for sure, the courts are available for play for non players too, but in certain specific timings and the courts I believe(am not sure) are airconditioned and the rates are very high. So you can do me the honors of finding out and reverting back to the forum with more useful information than the one i'm providing to you.
How old are you?? not that I want to know ur age, cos academies take up students of certain age only for coaching/training them. There is no harm in asking them if they provide training for people like you. If u live close to gachibowli then u can take out some time and visit both the places, see for urself and decide which is better. My advice would be gachibowli stadium.

Madhura Nagar Club
Madhura Nagar Club near Ameerpet,memberships are exhausted....a huge waiting list,but can play as guests...35rs per hour....provided no members waiting on the sidelines(can be an irritant this clause).
