thankyou so very much for the reply, lockleys tend to be very busy and i suspect very experienced players there. i will try another ? club that isnt so busy. But really looking for someone who isnt affliated or just wish to play for fun away from club setting or just socially on a regular basis.

I know they used to have socials at Glenunga International High School on Mondays and Thursdays 7.30-10?pm. They have 6 courts, beginners to advance players. Run by a guy called Ken.

Most of the clubs I've been to in Adelaide are mix of social players and people who play B/C grade competition. Sometimes you'll see a handful of A grade players at PAOC on a Sunday morning. Is there any particular club you're interested in?

I'm actually from Melbourne, will be in Adelaide for about a year from next month because of a job, so no, no particular club. Would like to play with a group's social session on a weekly basis. Am an intermediate player. Thanks a lot. Oh, and will be staying slightly north of the city.

I've heard good things about the Ingle Farm club on Tuesday nights, although I've never managed to get there myself. They're about 14 km north of town.
If you have access to a car, the drive to the Ranges club in Heathfield (Friday nights, about 20 min from the city centre) is worth the effort. Their web site is broken, but they're still meeting every week.
There are a few other places too. Addresses of clubs and names of contact people are on the Badminton SA web site, see link above.
Hopefully I'll get to meet you when you arrive. I hope you enjoy your year in Adelaide!

Hi, My partner and I have just moved to Adelaide from Perth and I am looking for places to play. I am an average but not very strong female player, so any clubs or just places to play games with other people socially would be great. I prefer playing with feather shuttles as I am used to playing with those in Perth, so would be really great if there are any places with people around my skill level that uses feathers. Thanks

generations26: Just scroll up and read the other posts in this thread! I think most of the information you need is there. I know that the PAOC, Sturt and Ranges clubs use feathers, whereas Glenelg use plastic. Not sure about the others, but you could just get in touch with them and ask. Do post again if you have any more questions.
adonic: Prices vary a lot from place to place, typically between $4 and $8 per session.
