Places to play in or near DC/MD
I've recently moved over from the UK and am based in Woodley Park in DC. I am looking for just badminton courts to book and also possibly an easy going club to join in the DC/MD area. I definitely need to brush up on my skills - but look forward to rekindling my love of the sport.

Thanks for the info - will check out these places - is that Garfield St NW? Hope so, as that's really close to me. Out of interest, do you know anywhere you can book a court just to practice (not sure I'd be much use joining a club in my present state of unfitness...)

You can pretty much just walk into GW and play. I don't think you get to book the courts and play over here in the United States. =)
But you can call the person in charge and tell them that you are interested in playing in their clubs. You will only need to pay a small fee and you're good to go. =)
Twinbook is reopening this week!

Ah ok, thanks for letting me know. Initially I just wanted a place to go and practise with my partner, but guess I'll join a club and take it from there. Can I use GW facilities even if i'm not a student?
Thanks for the info

You can call the GW badminton club for more info.
You can always walk in during the club practice time and speak to someone. =)

I will be moving to DC for school from the sunny southern california. Of all the club mentioned above, does anyone know if they open year round i.e. winter? I'm an intermediate player and will be there in July. I would love to meet or play with some of the potential players in the area. Thanks!
