    Hey Lazybuddy, you haven't been there yet? Surprise! I'm sure that you know most of the players in CP.
    I wish every club can do well, as we as players do want more choices to choose from.

    Well, I am pretty sure I know quite a bit players here and there, but the problem is my health situation is no where near before. My old and aching body simply does not allow me to play 5 times per week now.

    Default Badminton in Yonkers

    Hi All,

    It has been quite sometime since I posted a comment here. I want to inform those interested that I have started as Badminton Club in Yonkers last November. Here are the details:

    Location: Yonkers YWCA located at 87 South Broadway (914) 963-0640

    Number of Courts: One (though there is only one court, players are very considerate and felxible and do not mind waiting a for a while for their chance to play. Majority of the players play on Saturdays so Sundays are very much open and I myself play on Sundays.

    Badminton Schedule: Saturday 2-6pm and Sunday 10:30am-2:30pm- though these are the specific times, we can extend play beyond 6 pm and 2:30 pm on both days if the gym is available at those times. Also, though we do not play on the weekdays yet, members can call ahead to request the gym to be reserved for them on a weekday for a particular time. If that time is not already reserved by another group or activity, the Management will allow members to play at that time on weekday(s).

    Current Regular Members: We have about 7-10 regular players. Individuals are cotacting me on a regular basis to inquire so the interest is definitely there and I know that with time this Club will grow fast.

    YWCA Membership & Cost: All players must sign up for Y Membership of $45/year which is a great deal!

    Other Costs: We contribute a small amount on a monthly basis or on needs basis for shuttles.

    You may wish to stop by one day to get a sense of the place and to meet the rest of the players. If you are interested, please feel free to send me a message.

    Robina

    Default College Point now offers a promotion!

    At first, I almost backed off because of a little bit higher fee. But now CPbadminton is offering a promotion. Too bad, I already paid $160 for 10X.

    Pre-Opening Special
    Drop-In $14.00
    5x Visit Prepaid $60
    10x Visit Prepaid - $120 (Free 1 Doz. YONEX Shuttlecocks)

    I hope this is the first step to catch up with the badminton environment in west coast.

    Sounds like a good deal, I have to say.

    Still the same question, do they have enough players for weekday nights now? I most concern is still whether there's enough players to let me get enough variety of games.

    Kevin the organizer of CPbadminton kindly gave us an even better deal for those who bought 10X with original price.

    As far as I know, there are plenty of players on Wed & Thu nights. I'm pretty sure that you can enjoy playing many games. If there is not enough players, it might be a golden opportunity to play with Zaw Win the coach.

    Hi everyone,

    I am interested in joining a badminton club in nyc. I looked up nycbadminton club and with a 3 month member plus $15 to pay per day is just a bit too expensive especially if I would want to play at least twice or three times a week. Has anyone heard of these places:

    New York Athletic Club
    City House: 180 Central Park South, New York, NY 10019 | Tel: (212) 247-5100

    Categories: Amateur Sports Teams
    UN Plaza
    New York, NY, 10017
    212-753-6833

    They don't have web pages but I think I may call them up tomorrow to ask for more information. I live in Westchester but work in NYC. There is no badminton club in Westchester, unfortunately. The more affordable ones seems to be in Queens- too bad I dont live there anymore. I really want to join a badminton club but I would definitely want something reasonable...

    I wish I lived a little closer to CPbadminton. I went to nycbadminton club for the first time this week and liked it. I am thinking of doing a year membership and go on Tuesdays. It cost an arm and a leg but that usually doesnt deter addicts like me

    If you only want to play on weekdays, then NYC badminton (manhattan sites) might be the only choices, assume you do not drive.

    If you want to play on the weekends, then there's NYC badminton (queens sites) and a few other choices as well. However, public transportation might take some time and nerves, but if you drive, then, that's a different story.
