West End Community Centre
If some of you are still looking for a place to play that is CHEAP, check out the West End Community Centre's Saturday Programs.
For Badminton it starts at 3:15 PM to 4:45 PM every Saturday. Drop-in is $3.50, or you can sign up for 9 sessions for $26.00.
There are also Court Rentals where you can rent a court for you and your friends (up to 4) for $13 at the same time as above.
If you're worried about finding parking, you can park in the school lot (for free!)
If you need any more information or for any of the other sports offered, go to www.westendcc.ca or call 604-257-8333.

Well... about time. Now there's three drop-ins in Vancouver Downtown for badminton. Coal Harbour and Roundhouse are the other two. You might wanna take some photos of the gym and put it on this thread.

The only thing with CH is that a) it fills up and you may be turned away, b) you have to rotate and c) parking is $$.
With RH - there's not a lot to park and if there is, you have to pay.
I will take some pictures for sure!

Perhaps you can help me spread the word around. If this does not succeed this season, they may shut it down. They tried in March 08 to have a badminton drop in but it was not successfull.

I am afraid I can't help you there. I play in a private club and I don't live anywhere near there. When did West End start the baddy drop-in? When I first moved out to Vancouver four years ago, I didn't see it on the recreational guide for downtown area. Badminton was only available in Coal Harbour and Roundhouse. If it's a recent startup, then it's tough cuz the word is certainly not getting out to the West End folks.

How's the drop-ins there? Maybe you could give out handouts to people who drop-in so that they could spread the word around. Westend community seem more outdoorish crowd to me so that doesn't help your cause. Try putting up posters near Robson and Denman, there are a number of Japanese restaurants with potential clientele. Japanese students might be interested in drop-ins at West End if they couldn't get into Coal Harbour or RoundHouse.
