Hi Hyper_Carbon (umm Im sure u hv a Name too!) lol..
Yes, probably that was us (mostly Pakistani.. one Indian couple).. Next time you see us.. just ask for Kamal btw, we're trying to go there regularly from Sun-Tues 10pm-12am.
One more thing i'd like to ask you... (need expert opinion).. what speed is good for Feather shutlecocks? We got one box (tube) of Dunlop pretty cheap SR.50 and its speed was very slow.. which we're looking for. I noticed the boxes have some numbers (2,3,4..7 or 75,76,77..etc) indicating the shuttle's speed. However, is 2 faster or slower?
Thanks for your suggestions and comments
We'll be going there tonight ...

If you're the only Kamal in your group then mostly probably we've met.
I'm not an expert. I'm still a newbie in this sport. I'm not familiar with 1,2,3, etc... ratings of shuttlecocks. What I usually see are 74, 76, 77, 78 ratings. IMHO, 77 or 78 is good enough for Jeddah's climate or if you're playing at JIS. But watch out if you use the same shuttlecocks at Olympia. It might go crazy because the courts are elevated and sometimes it freezing cold (6th & 7th Floor).
Dunlop @SAR50 per tube is quite expensive. I've heard that there is a sport shop in Baghdadiyah that sells Trump shuttlecocks @ SAR35 per tube. Try scout around some Indonesian stores that sells Samurai brand shuttlecocks @SAR40-45/tube. Or ask Mr. Edy of JIS, maybe he knows someone selling.
I hope it hleps.

Sorry for a very, very late reply. I don't know any clubs in Makkah but for sure some Malaysians and Indonesian based in Makkah are going down to Jeddah to play. If by chance you're in Jeddah, look for Serafi Mall (infront of IKEA). There is a shop called Go Sports. Look for the store manager Bob Pillado and for sure he can help you.
Right now, I'm Canada based and trying to look for club as well.

Hi! I've been living in Jeddah for almost a year already. I joined this group co'z I wanna start playing badminton since I had a hard time looking for water sport and/or volleyball clubs which is my main interest. Apparently, there are many badminton clubs here in Jeddah and I don't know how, where and when to start. I am located near Batarjee St. and I sometimes stay in Khalediya District as well. I'm a beginner with this sport but I do have an idea about the mechanics of the game. I read the whole thread but I just don't know how to start. I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me with this one.

Difficulty in getting membership of Olympia
I am a Pakistani National. Yesterday, I visited Olympia. The lady at reception advised me to join group. She also said, "all courts are fully packed and all groups have their maximum members limit. So this is not the right time for you to join now."
In this situation, if you or anyone can help me in getting admission, I would be highly grateful. Even it is for 2days in a week, its acceptable to me.
Kind Regards, Ali 0542927835

I have recently moved to Jeddah and looking for badminton courts to resume my game. While searching I found that mainly there are only two places:
1- Olympia Courts
2- Jeddah International School
I don't know why some people wrote that there are lot of courts in Jeddah. Well I am living in Hayy al Rehab and will appreciate if anyone could tell me a court near to Rehab, Aziziya, because coming on Palestine street is always problematic due to always traffic rush on this road.
My contact number is 054-1261272. I shall appreciate if anyone can guide me please.
Thanks in advance and best regards..............
