There is already a thread open on the Hwajeong area of Goyang. No details there yet for Ilsan but it might be a good idea to stick to that thread. Hien, the man who started the thread, has since returned home but the gyms remain.

Anyway, we can let the moderators decide whether to merge the threads. Since you are not likely subscribed to the other one, let me answer you here.
2 years ago, Hien and I tried the Haengshin gym mentioned, which is near the KTX station. It is not a nice facility. Walls and (low) roof are a tent and the floor was linoleum or something. Might be different now.
A good place we found was near Goyang City Hall. It's in the park shown here, very close to Wonneung Station, on the #3 line. I think there were about 6 or 7 courts and some good players. They were just about to start charging admission, which means that joining a club is cheaper and theoretically optional, though the cliquiness drives most people to join one.
If you're looking for Ilsan, there are lists in Korean for Ilsan East and Ilsan West. For the Deokyang-gu part of Goyang, the list is here. I don't have any firsthand knowledge of any others, though. If you don't read Korean and don't have someone to look at the locations for you, give me a better idea of what part of Goyang you're in and I'll see what I can do.

bigdave4859, did you by chance find a place that is near to me as well? I live in Sillim-dong near Sillim station on line 2. I just arrived in Seoul 2 weeks ago and will stay for a year. If you need a playing partner please let me know. Thanks

I'm looking for badminton court near BUndang because the place where we played last week is in Magok and it's very far from our place.

Seoul thread is the only one that has any Bundang information, starting with post #38.
