    From Wong Wian Yai, Thonburi, head towards Dao Ka Nong, at the end of Satorn bridge, turn left, left hand side has Thai Commercial Bank (I think might be Thai Farmers Bank). Behind this bank has a huge Badminton court, I think around 20 courts.
    It is walking distance from Wong Wian Yai.

    I am not quite sure for the matter of being a member.
    I have not been there for six years. You are better to
    pop in and ask the reception for details. The only thing
    that I know is that it is really packed during week-end.

    Thanut:-

    Prices for Soi Klang are as follows:-

    Weekday Holiday
    Guest 165 220
    Non-member 330 440

    Membership for one year is 6,600
    Membership for 3 months is 2,970

    I guess "Holiday" mean Sat & Sun & national holidays.

    Grant,

    Do they have a good coach available at Soi Klang if I wanted to go to Bangkok for a couple weeks of holiday and badminton training? If so could you find out the fees or put me in touch with the contact there?

    Ross,

    There's no coach or official training as such. It's just a private club where individual groups get together. Nothing to serious. If you want coaching, I suggest going elsewhere.

    Ross,
    Why don't you get in touch with the Badminton Assoc. of Thailand:-
    Lumpinee Park
    Wittayu-Sarasin Road
    Patumwan
    10330
    Tel +662 255 3391-3 or +662 251 0712

    They may know more about coaching available.

    Worth a try.

    Ross,
    If you do drop by Soi Klang, make sure you come on either Tues, Thurs or Sat ~19:30. We play on the far right court.
    Cheers.

    This may be a bit too late but I just coming into this forum for the first time.
    I play badminton in Bangkok quite often, so if you are coming to Bangkok and want to play just send me the e-mail and I can recommend where you should go too. I also know some coaches here, so if you want some training, I also can arrange for you.
