Badminton In Nova Scotia
OK! there are lots of places to play and decent competition if you go tothe right places at the right time! I play in the south shore and am able to play 4 days a week! Lunenburg has games on sunday morning at 9am and on wed. night from 7-9.30. Bridgewater has games at the michelin center on monday from 7-9pm and on wed. at the high school from 7-10.
halifax has games at dalplex but you'd have to contact them for info.

Wednesday = 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Friday = 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Sunday = 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Usually, there's about 20 - 30 people who show up. But pretty much everyone plays doubles, so courts are open usually.
There are 6 courts, and usually, theres none open at the start, but me and a friedn waited for 15 minutes and one opened up. We played a singles game, and left to get a drink. We came back 5 - 10 minutes later and that same court was still open. That happened about 3 times. So, its filled at the start, but courts open up fast.
On the Dalhousie website, it claims "We have a fun, friendly atmosphere and our members range from beginner to advanced." But in reality, it's not for beginners... The level of play is more advanced, but I'm 14, and I can play there, so it's not too difficult. Other than that, Dalplex is a great experience! You can also use the whole Fieldhouse instead of just badminton (Pool, Track, Weights, Basketball, Volleyball).
Hope that answers your questions.
