    Hello,
    just arrived in Dakar, Senegal and already found a place to play badminton - not the best of venues, but better than nothing.
    Now, I am looking for a good player to give me a good workout ...

    Any players out there?

    Andy

    Have you posted your request somewhere in French and Wolof? Maybe you'd get more answers.

    If you left Dakar, can you help me to find a place to play ?
    And maybe you kept Marie's number ?

    Hello Jainil,
    I indeed left Dakar already 1 year ago and went back to Europe. I am not sure if Marie is still there - however, I am still in contact with the initiator of the Badminton club in Dakar and they are still playing. So, please do contact Khalil and say hi from Andy.
    Good luck and enjoy!

    Oh COOOL !! Merci Andy ! I'm gonna email Khalil straight away. And will surely convey your greetings :eek:)
    In addition, I got the Ouakam French Military Compound over the phone and they also propose lots of activities, including badminton ! Will check that out (in September).

    Many thanks again and take care Andy,
    J

    Excellent, sounds you are finding your way around. The French Military Compound is now also playing with the Dakar group ... so, you will find the same people.
    I am not sure anymore when Khalils group is playing, but try to go on Sunday at 12:00 to the sports hall of the American School on the Corniche.
    Ciao
    Andy

    Hello Imran,
    I also recently arrived (end of Aug 2016) to Dakar from Canada. I played a few years in a recreational club and am an intermediate player, maybe less if compared to serious players. I would also like to look into playing badminton a couple of times per week - mostly for the exercise and socializing. My shipment arrives in perhaps 5-6 weeks so no rackets until then. Have you heard of any clubs in existence?
    Ron

    Hi Imran,
    I've been sidetracked the past week and haven't had a chance to catch up with a couple of people that have been here longer. I'll let you know if I found out any good leads. Cheers.
    Ron
