Yeah, badminton is a small world I plan on occasionally driving up to play at the new Bintang on weekends, maybe I'll see you there.

Awesome, but I don't really play anymore. The last time I played was at the end of May I think. I've been recovering from a recent wrist injury (muscle strain). And even before then, I've only been playing once a month.

I have registered at monterey sports club, i talked to the person incharge there and he said most of the badminton action happens over the weekend. I will check it out this weekend to see. I would love play daily after office hours though if possible

Okay, great! Let us all know how it goes. I can't make it this weekend (15-16th), but I will definitely check it out next weekend.

I was there today (Saturday) at 1, but there weren't any badminton players. The people working there told me you basically need to come with a group to play badminton; it's rare that you can randomly find people.
So who wants to form a group I would love to get a group together to play either weekends or after work on weekdays. Email/message me and we can coordinate.

I would love to be part of group and play regularly. I am open for weekends or weekdays after work. I went in today at 3pm and there was nobody, so i just had the gym people put up the court and asked one of the people around if he could play. I am open to come in tomorrow to play if you can. Let me know either way, my email is sanveer76 at gmail

Badminton in Monterey
Hi I also just moved from Salinas and have been playing badminton for 15 years. I also play regularly in Hawaii. You can reach me thru firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange or meet or form a badminton club here in Monterey.
Anybody interested to form a group let me know

More interested people
My name is Dan and I'm from Salinas. a few people and I are playing Badminton at Hartnell College. My friends and I are trying to find a group of people to play with and hopefully a place that will allow a few hours of gym time to do some. According to prior threads, weekend mornings at Monterey Sports Complex is the place to be. I'm checking a few places in Salinas to see if there is any other possible places to play. I may talk to Hartnell to see if they will start a club or something.
Let me know and let see if we can't get something together.

Thank you for the offer. Unfortunately, I work until 5pm during the weekday. If we can't get something going after work, then weekends are always do-able. I've checked the open gym times at Motnerey Sports Center. It sounds like availability is based on whoever gets there first. CSUMB has good open gym times. I'm not sure if they have the badminton equipment or if that is something our group must provide...I'll check into that. CSUMB seems a little cheaper in price to use their gym.
Please let me know if there is any groups out there who play during the weekend or weekday nights. I'm totally down and have 4 others that would be down, as well. My group of friends are between beginner and intermidate.

Weekends are doable for us (me and Jay) as well. The only reason we dont play on the weekdays after 5 is because the Monterey Sports center Gym is reserved for basketball till 8.00pm and we cant really get them to setup badminton courts for us after 5.00pm. If you can talk to CSUMB to setup badminton courts after 5 pm for all of us on weekdays that would be great and all of us can join in. Let me know either way, this saturday will work for me. Let me know if you are interested to play on saturday, around 11.00 am or any other time that is acceptable to you.

Any updates from your side in regards to CSUMB or Hartnell College. Just following up to see if you need any help to get our little club going to play regularly

UPDATE for anyone looking for a place to play: there is a good sized group that plays at the York school in Monterey, Mon & Wed 7-9 PM, friendly people and a good range of skill levels.

My wife and I have been in Monterey for a little over a year and have only been playing each other at the Presidio of Monterey gym. We would love to play other people to mix it up and are very interested in the play at the Monterey Sports Center (I stumbled across this thread this morning). How would one get started playing with others there? And how much does it cost? Thanks!

Hey Jay, I am wondering if York school is still opened for badminton on Mon & Wed 7-9 PM? i went there on Monday around 7pm, there were nobody.

It's closed temporarily for renovation, should hopefully be open again before too long.
