Our local community centre has started Badminton twice a week, so went along to play. The court is on a surface similar to rubber flooring I would say and light blue in colour. Anyway trainers with a black sole are not allowed due to marks being made on the surface, which I only found out once I started to play, so had to take off my trainers and socks and go in my barefeet which was a bit of a silly rule and having to wait in between games in my barefeet as well was not nice. Any trainers I have are blacked soled so I don't really want or see why I should get some more, but is going barefeet okay on this surface. If it was wooden floor then no way would I do it.
