Looking for players (females too!) in Markham/Scarborough
Hi all, I'm a female in Uni looking for other females to play badminton once or twice a week in the evenings/weekends (currently wondering if there are any reading this at all!). I consider myself a well-rounded athlete with good agility, and I used to play mixed doubles as well as other team sports - ie. basketball. So I guess my level of play is intermediate? And I also don't mind playing mixed again too!
Since I'm picking this up again, naturally I'm a little rusty, but can pick up fast. Just looking for people to play with regularly for fun / little friendly competition if offered.
If anyone wants to play, please message me. Or if anyone wants to suggest where I can play with you, feel free to message as well! Thanks!

Try to join a recreational club.
I play @ L'Amoureaux Badminton Club @ Warden & Finch.
MON-THU-FRI (7PM - 10PM)
Membership is closed but you can probably come and play as a guest. ($10 a nite).

if you are a student, you can join mandarin's student membership, new people:
$30 one time initation fee, $30 from may1st to sept15th, so $30 is for 4.5 months, plus for each visit $5 fee applies, valid only after 3:30pm.
i think this is the best offer out there, because the courts there are nice (matted and cushioned) and $5 per visit is good compared to some places which is $10 night.
ummm....until then, you can find places like l'amoureaux rec centre, they have sessions on tuesdays 7-9pm, 9-11pm. starts on april 7th, $5 per visit. just enter thru the rec center and go downstairs to the gym.
unionville high school has badminton saturdays 7-9pm , $5 per visit
i am planning to visit thornlea secondary school on wednesday, they have badminton 8-1030pm, $4 per visit, lemme know if you are interested

deadman85 is right.
If your budget is tight look into the places he mentioned. Actually the best thing is to try them all out and see which one suits you the best - based on location / timings / how the club is run / level of players / age group of players, etc, etc.
I tried a few clubs myself till I settled on L'Amoreaux.
Good Luck with your search!
