YMCA of yonkers has agreed to let us use their gym for badminton for 6 hours on Saturday and Sunday.
The price is $100/hour and that is $600?week. Depending on the members we can atleast play for 2 to 4 days every month.
If you are interested, please reply asap to email@example.com. I am trying to get as many people asb possible to keep the cost down for everyone.

i'm interested in playing. about 3 months ago i think i went to the robert wagner gym but i couldn't really figure out how to get inside. i'm going to try and make another attempt to go and play this friday (dec 1st). i'm from seattle and i haven't really played badminton since coming here for college.
is there anything i should know about before stopping by for my first time?

www.nycbadminton.com for updated schedule and location. Best way is to give them a call before leaving home, and ask for directions and fees. Their walk in fee is on the expensive side, consider become a member if you like the environment. Ask them for detail membership vs. walkin difference. Robert Wagner has only 4 courts, and 1 is used for training. Therefore, you might have to expect some waiting. I think their Tuesday location (18 street) have more courts, therefore, more games available.
If you live in brooklyn, you can also try www.brooklynbadminton.com, they play on Sat from 9:30 - 3:45, with 8 courts. Very easy to get there by car or subway (D train @ bay 50 street).
Both places have fairly large crowd, and players level various from beginner to ex-international level. Talk to the managers, and they should be able to arrange you some decent game around your level. Better have your own gears, especially shoes and racket. NYCB provides shuttles, while BBC not. You need to bring your own and contribute to the game, or purchase on the spot.
Overall, there should be some good games for you, if you join the right crowd. However, expect to pay some top $$$, as this is NY.

Anybody here know where UEAA (United East Athletic Association) is located?
Heard about them but not sure if it is a gym or just a club with no facilities.
Hoping they are located in NYC!

United East also plays in annal team tournament, and a lot of their players coming from AES or Brooklyn badminton club.

any venue is fine with me. just give me the subway directions from east 92nd st.

They do have subway (D train @ Bay50st), but kinda far from your place. Top of my head, I think you can take 4,5,6 to grand central, then take 7 train for 1 stop to 42nd street, 5th ave (bryant park),then transfer D train (brooklyn direction) from there. I think if for weekend, the trip might be at least 1.5 hrs or so.
I will confirm my schedule later of this week. Looking forward to see you.
