As much as I'm happy that growth of badminton in the Bay Area is rising, As a badminton enthusiast, I'm a bit disheartened by the lack of gyms around my area (San Leandro/San Lorenzo/Castro Valley). http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid...l=37.615319,-122.064972&spn=0.894184,2.113495 Well the map probably says it all. There is a big gap between Union City/Emeryville/Dublin Area. Is there a particular reason why badminton gym owners have avoided this area? As far as I know, there are quite a few good places in San Leandro (probably along Wicks Blvd) that are good places to start a gym. I'm almost at the point where I want to start my own badminton club just to make up for the lack of places to play in the area.
