    Hi, I'm moving to Calgary to live for good around mid October of this year and is looking for a place to play badminton. I play mostly doubles and level is somewhere around advance. I would prefer if everyone in the team is roughly the same level and not mixed up with kids and beginners (sorry for being frank here). Please mail me if someone need another player to join. TQ :)

    I'm looking to get back into badminton in November. Would you recommend Sunridge or ClearOne? They are about the same distance from me. Thanks!

    Id say Sunridge is better for dropping in and meeting new people to play since its very easy to do that. ClearOne is more groups that go there and not as easy to find people, its still possible dont get me wrong and there are often groups with extras avilable to play depending on the day. Both places offer a warm atmosphere from the people and the people are generally very nice and open to playing with anyone.

    Hope that you are able to find a place/group, if you are every out at ClearOne let me know, I coach out there and sometimes stay to play with some of the juniors. Could always have a a hit with you.

    Hi there, this is an old thread but would like to revive. New in town and want to ask if I can join you guys. I am intermediate level. Let me know if I can join and the time you guys play and what shuttlecocks I need to bring along. TIA!

    Hey Monster. If you are still looking, there is a group that plays in the southwest at Woodbine elementary school Tuesday/Thursday evenings. Contact is suneel@telus.net. It's an intermediate group with three courts.

    Hi brentjohner, I will drop an email to the contact you provided. I played twice at Sunridge and it is extremely packed with some groups hogging on to courts forever. Hopefully it is better at the school.
