    Default Arcadia Badminton Club - open gym wait time report

    As requested, i am going to every so often update the wait time and general occupancy of Arcadia Badminton Club in this thread. As i only go there on weekends after 6.00pm, please update this thread if you have reports from other times.

    Temp: around 90 degrees F, went down to around 80 degrees+ F as the night continued..

    7-9pm: barren almost like a desert. only 3 courts occupied. you can keep playing and playing.

    9-10.30pm onwards: more people showed up. more courts filled but one can still keep playing without waiting.

    Temp. : hovering around 90 degrees F (indoor). It stayed that way til around 10:30ish where it dropped to a cool 80+ degrees F..

    8-ishpm-10pm: I came in, looked around and asked myself "Where's everybody?"..only 5-6 courts out of 17 courts were used.
    10pm onwards : I asked myself "Why am i still here?". Only 2 courts were used by then.

    I chatted with a couple people who came earlier and they told me, the crowd was a bit more from 2:30ish til 6 pm. Courts were all used but there wasn't any wait time. Then died down from 6pm onward.

    That is usually the typical crowd on a Sunday evening.

    Day: Mondays/Tuesdays

    8-10pm - Quite crowded. Many courts are reserved. I did not wait as we reserved a court but all courts were being played on so I am sure that waiting is required.

    After 10pm - Opens up a bit. Empty courts available as people starts to leave

    May start to play weekends if its actually that empty.

    Once in a while they will have tournaments on weekends (Saturdays usually), so expect the place to be totally packed wall to wall..
    But, generally, the place is less crowded and has zero wait time on weekends. Also on weekends, i think there are more people playing in the morning til afternoon time. Maybe the heat this past weekend is what's causing all the empty courts..

    Temp. : After last weekend's sauna-like weather, the playing temperature dropped to around 80+ degrees F (indoor) when i got in and slowly cooled to around high 70s. But one could still feel a bit of the humidity in the air..

    6ish-11ish pm: Plenty of courts available, at max. abt 9 courts used out of 17 courts, to lowest of 6 courts used. The crowd dwindled a bit as the night continued but the number of available courts stayed relatively the same throughout.

    Temp. : back to being warm but not as warm as 2 weeks ago..

    6ish-10ish pm: Ditto as in previous weeks. Plenty of courts available.

    This coming Saturday, however, there will be a tournament, so i'd expect the gym to be slightly full.

    Temp. : feels like Fall weather...perfect weather to play baddy..

    6ish-9ish pm: Came there and the gym was packed; of course there was a tourney going on. No open courts available while 7 courts were reserved for the tourney. Wait time for the other courts, about 1 match.
    After around 8ish, more courts were available. Around 9ish, after the champions of the Level A group lifted the trophies and took pics, only abt 9 total courts were used.

    3:30ish-9:00ish pm: Came a bit earlier..most of the courts were taken but still a few open ones. Another Fiipino group, a good size, seems to spruce up out of nowhere, as it was my first time noticing them. They used abt 3 courts and definitely were having a ball of a time..But by 8ish pm, only abt 4-5 courts were used..It's that holiday time of the year, so the club could be slowing down a bit..
    *Btw, heard the Philippines Badminton Club group will have their annual Christmas luncheon/dinner on the 18th..
