Guys, I just moved to Rochester recently. Where do you play badminton?

Hey guys, I just arrived in Rochester MN not long ago. Would be interested joining if anyone is organizing one. Average player though.

There is a bunch of people playing at RCTC. 5 courts, not all set up though. Usually every Friday 7:30-9pm. Next time will be April 10th. Haven't been there yet. PM me and I can send you the contact of that group.

I will come tonight, so thanks for letting me know.
Will need to borrow a racquet though, do you think someone will oblige?

I have a spare one, MP99 if that fits your need.
BTW, are you coming from UK tonight?

thanks for the offer
An MP99 will be fine. I sold my AT700s (very much like the MP99) becuase I couldn't get used to it and have gone back to Carlton, but as I have no racquets and I want a game, I am very happy to take up your generous offer!!
I arrived in Rochester last Staurday. See you tonight.

can anyone suggest a good place in the twin cities. i m staying shoreview,MN.

As mentioned previously in this thread, check out www.twincitiesbadminton.com. This site lists all of the places to play, including some new ones.
In my opinion, one of the better places for "drop-in" visitors is the Luxton Rec. Center in Minneapolis. It can get crowded, but people are usually willing to mix it up with newcomers.

I looked at www.twincitiesbadminton.com but I still don't know where to go as a beginner. A lot of those places seem like leagues or clubs: experienced players playing doubles matches with each other.
I have never played before and I have a friend who wants to teach me, but we don't know where to find a court where we can just practice casually with each other. It'd be nice if there was a place that was either not very busy or took reservations, so we wouldn't have to worry about rotating in and out with other people all the time. I'm expecting that sort of thing to cost more, e.g. gym membership, which is okay... I just don't know where or how to find it.
Does anyone know a place like that in the Twin Cities area? Thanks for any help. I'd like to get into the sport because it seems like a lot of fun.

My advice would be to try any of the locations marked as "new" on TCBC's website. I've heard that Plymouth is underutilized. you might also try Maple Grove, Cottage Grove or Apple Valley. All of these are drop-in locations that aren't run by clubs.
Try Luxton when you get your skills up a bit.

Thanks for the info. I'll take a visit to a couple of those and see.
