where to play badminton in Bangkok
I am a Chinese and came to BKK in June. I love to play badminton and have been playing over 10yrs. Though I have not played for a couple of years, I really want back to court.
I don't know much people here in Bangkok. Could you list some places to play? I live around Soi 20 of Sukhumvit. Any court close by? partners?
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have some fun in weekend.
Thanks in advance for your information.

From what I know, there's no badminton courts around the Sukhumvit 20 area - I live on Sukhumvit 21 by the way.. The closest court that I play at is at Lumphini (Wednesday 8pm to 11pm). I also play in Rhachayothin and Bangna sometimes too.
Let me know if you're interested in joining, if not, good luck with your search!

Still didn't get your name but got your number! There's no membership requirements in any of the places that I play, you just have to show up with your rackets and pay for it when you're done. You'll get to meet and play with different people that is within the group.
Information of location is as follows:
Monday 8pm to 11pm - Rachayothin (Mit Sena Court)- Sena 1 - after turning into Sena 1, make a right into the smaller soi (soi 2), go towards the end, the badminton court is on your right.
Wednesday 8pm to 11pm - Lumphini (Don't remember the name of the court) - The court is right next to Lumphini park on Wireless Road - at the intersection between Sarasin Road and Wireless Road. There's a police station somewhere opposite the court while Suan Lum Night Bazaar is next to the police station. Note: The court is quite hard to be spotted at night.
Friday 8pm to 11pm - Mit sena court - same direction as the above.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need further instructions.

I will be going to Bangkok next monday. I will be staying near to Ratchadamri BTS station. I am an intermediate player. Need ur guideline/advise on any badminton court or any groups playing near to this area?

But again here....
You place is in the Mid-town of Bangkok. Our court is not quite near BTS station, but I can recommend you to take BTS to National Stadium and the take a TAXI instead.
Our team plays twice a week ... on WED and SAT from 20.00-02.00 or a bit late.
I recommend you to take taxi to CENTRAL PIN-KLAO DEPARTMENTSTORE , so I can pick you up from there to MY HOUSE 1 court (about 5-10 mins depends on the traffic).
Do you have cellphone while you are in Bangkok ??? if yes, you can contact me when you arrive at CENTRAL PIN-KLAO Dept.
On the way back to your place from MY HOUSE 1 court, the taxi fair will be around 130 Bahts.
Anyway I hope to hear from you soon. And we will stop playing on SAT 28th March because our team will have a league competition
on the weekend. At the court, there are shower rooms for you. Just bring lots of shirts if you may need because it's quite hot this time.
Let me know when is your convenient day, OK?

By the way, the following question might not be placed in appropriate threads but i really need a help from you all, especially those reside in Bangkok area and have experience about what rackets and where to buy..
I'm planning on getting myself badminton racket Kumpoo PowerShot P830 or PowerShot P800. The retail prices of those two are Bt 3,850 but shop nearby BTS Promphong prices them at Bt 2,600 each. (anyone know cheaper places that this?)
My question is, has anyone ever used Kumpoo PowerShot P830 & P800 (people told me and i read on the product description that these two rackets can be strung to maximum 40lbs!). Please tell me what are the differences between those two (which one is good for offensive play or defensive play?) Or should i be getting myself a Kumpoo Nano Hexagon 2300 just like what Bonsaak.P uses?
Anyway, i'm a double-type player, prefer to go for offensive and technique plays, jumping smash for most of the duration of games, i hardly consider myself even as intermediate player (3/7).
Thank you in advanced!

My opinion .....
P 800 is all around racket , easy to control, Medium Balance.
P 830 is good for offensive player, head of racket is a bit heavy.
Nano Hexagon 2300 is quite difficult to control for intermediate player or beginner.
Anyway, it's better to try before you buy one. I tried it once... ummm...it's just OK. to me. I still stick with Yonex Ti-10 ( Yellow - White ).
About the price 2,600 Bhts. is fair price, but if you live in BKK, you can buy at 2,500 Bhts. without paying shipping cost.

Hi Mr. Anek,
I bought my Hexagon 2300 at that shop, but it is more like Kumpoo official dealer, instead of maibadlukbad. They do not sell any other rackets but Kumpoo only. Well, i tried my Hexagon2300 last night at TPI Cement Factory nearby Muak Lek. All i can say is the racket is mush lighter than my previous DART Concave Speed 3000. I was kinda expecting it would've been heavier-head as i could generate more power while smashing. But to my surprise, the hitting sound is great (BG66-25lbs), and the control is excellent. Still can't get used to drop-shot yet tough.
I saw ur current pictures celebration and those various games made form badminton stuff. I can only say, SATURN is truly innovative! I've never even thought of creating new games using badminton stuff. I wonder, how would you play single-paired-player whom happen to use right-handed??.. or should they be paired on basis of right-left-handed players?
One more doubt, i see the prize has Ling Ni brand on it. All i know it is a chinese brand, sponsored all Chinese team players. Originally i was gonna buy that brand in Thailand but i gave up cuz lack of information. Do you have any idea where to buy those Ling Ni brand?
