    Default Badminton in Tokyo

    I am an adult business person from Canada, and will be in Tokyo during the next two weeks, August 22 to September 5. I am interested in playing badminton during this time. I am an intermediate player, have played for four years, and would like to play some mixed / doubles games. I am not interested in singles matches.

    I will be in the Shibuya / Shinjuku area. Are there any places close by that I can play some games?

    Sorry, I do not know any Japanese.

    Thank you!

    Conrad

    You may try the badminton club "By the Way" in Itabashi-ku, Tokyo.
    Last year I lived in Itabashi-ku, I have played in there for a few times.

    The website have English and you can contact with
    YAMAGUCHI Ichiro using English.

    PS:From Shinjuku to nearby train station about 20~30mins
    From nearby train station to the place they play about 10~15mins walk.

    Hi Conrad

    Recently I am playing in the badminton club which called the "spank" in Akabane.
    15mins train from Shinjuku and 10mins walk from the train station.
    They play double and mix double only. (Tue, Wed and Sat. 7pm to 10pm)

    http://www.web-spank.com/katsudo_pro...fo2006_1st.htm
    You can find the e-mail at the bottom of the page, but I am not sure does he know English or not.

    Jacky

    PS:300yen register fee, and 500yen each time

    Sorry Conrad,
    Forget to tell, the web page of Spank are in Japanese only.
    If you are interest, I can help you ask the man in charge.
    I usually went there on Tue and Sat.

    Hi Conrad,

    I have asked the man in charge already.
    He said no problem ^^, but I should go with you in case he need some translation.

    PS: you have to prepare your own racket and a pair of in-door shoes and water.
    I will go there on Tue and Sat 7:00pm to 10:00pm.
    We can meet in the train station at Akabane if you like. (about 6:45pm)

    Jacky
