    Default Boston, MA US

    anyone know any clubs, schools, where badminton is played around Boston and the greater Boston area? Right now I play badminton around twice a week and hoping to find more places so I can play more. Thanks.

    Well apparently I am the only member of BC from the Boston, MA US area. In case any of you guys ever show up around this part of the world, here's a brief list of places I've found where you can play badminton around here. I'll divided according to days of the week:

    Monday:
    1) Needham High School, Needham. $20 / season (~12 weeks). 7:30-10pm.

    Tuesday:
    Haven't found a place yet.

    Wednesday:
    1) Lincoln Hancock School, Quincy. $7 (member) $9(non-member) / session. 6:30-9:30pm.

    2) Natick Armory, Natick. $8 / session. 7?-10pm?

    Thursday:
    1) Sharon Middle School, Sharon. #45 / season (~12 weeks). 7:30-10:30pm.

    Friday:
    1) Boston University. If pay, you can play Fri, Sat, and Sun, (whenever the gym is open) $20 / season (? not sure how long) 6:30-11pm.

    Saturday:
    1)Boston University. 5-7pm?

    2)MIT. Cambridge. $5 / session. time ?

    Sunday:
    1)Boston University. 4-6pm?

    2)Bedford High School, Bedford. $5 / session. 1:30-5pm.

    So far these are the closest places I've found around me, all within 30 min of driving.

    Just moved to Boston and it seems to me that there isn't any cost-effective way to play badminton here in the Boston-metro area accessible by the "T". Could jwu or anyone help me out? I tried BU but I was told that they are not currently taking non-BU affiliated players. To get into MIT and Harvard's facilities is just way too expensive for non-students.
    Thanks a lot!

    hey mkwan, welcome to boston first of all!! it is also where I would like to call, "badminton abyss".

    Actually BU do accept non-BU affiliated people, the only thing is the season ends in two weeks so that's probably why they told you no. PM me later and I'll let you know the schedule of the next session. MIT is kinda hard to get in and expensive if you don't know anyone at MIT. Um the above location, Quincy can be accessed by the red line, just need a little walk afterwards so not sure if you wanna do that. You can check their address online by doing a search for the school name in google.com.

    Best bet, BU (when it starts again in Jan), Quincy (kind of a hike), and MIT (find some connections). let me know if you need more help.

    I never recalled it being hard to play at MIT or Harvard. I'm always welcome to play there whenever I'm in town (rarely).

    maybe times have changed Don. Harvard actually isn't too hard to get into, just expensive, about $10 each time and you need to go in with a Harvard affiliated person. As for MIT, you need to be either MIT affiliated, or you need to buy their atheletic pass which is about $400 USD a year or even higher, and then you have to pay $5 each time.

    I go a few times every year, while I'm in town. I've never been turned back, nor do I pay. Pretty weird. I guess they like out of town players.
