Salt Lake City: Where to play?
I'll be headed here this Fall to attend the University of Utah. I was wondering if there was any place for me to play here.

Thanks, I'm pretty nervous about going to grad school and leaving California. I'm particularly worried about snow and my car not starting on exam day because of the cold.
I really do need to stock up on slower shuttles for Utah, but I'm not even sure if I'll even get a chance to play. Speed 47 is slower, right?
I also found out the schedule for badminton at the HPER gym.
Gyms - Badminton/Volleyball
Tuesday & Thursday 6:30 pm -10:00 pm
Saturday & Sunday 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

You have to have a University student sponsor you for a visitor pass for that day which costs about $5.

Just thought I'd post here again and say that I've found 2 other places to play. I have not played there and I've only played perhaps three times total since I've been here.
But in case anyone needs more info on other places to play. Here are the 2 others:
-Richards Building at BYU (in Provo) only on Monday evenings from 6pm - 9pm. $5 entry fee for non-students.
-Payson High School in Payson, only on Monday evenings from 7pm - 9pm. Check link for more info.
Then I saw that Salt Lake City Community college has a badminton club, but don't know when they have open gym because there's barely any information online about the club in general too. Also was told before that Utah State University also holds open gym. In all, there are 3 places to play with 2 more potential places that need to be confirmed. Hope this helps other people out there.

I'm back to playing badminton in Salt Lake City at the University of Utah on Saturdays. It looks like you don't need a sponsor in order to get a guest pass seeing as I'm no longer a student there. You just go to the office window and purchase a guest pass.
It's $5 for a guest pass (must be used same day).
They also have $35 for 8 passes (can be used anytime).
Feel free to message me, post here, or send a carrier pigeon if want to play.
