    i know it's not a club or anything.

    but i think one of the closest to 17th ave sw would have to be the talisman centre. there's no drop in but the new gyms are a great facility.

    still a ~ $8 drop in, and u dunno who and how many people will be playing badminton. ALso, u have to book the court too. I doubt u can book the 'new section'. The regular court have poor lighting, white roof, white walls. Next to the 2 official size swimming pools, u will feel more humid than playing in SE asia.
