Alternately you guys can get a group of "bad" players together and rent a court..its your best bet.
YEA.,.. lets do this.. noobs badminton meet.. its been ages since I played

I would be in for a noob meet in January.

I find that if you go into drop-ins enough times you'll eventually find someone around your level. The problem I have is finding free courts when it gets busy .

Level: Beginner/intermediate
Usual place I play: Guildford rec
Availability: Whenever
Preferred Meet location: Anywhere between guildford, richmond, and burnaby.

If you email this email address: info@kbi-hockey.com they can give you the details. i believe she's the coordinator, and location is at Smash on Thursdays. Haven't actually attended a session yet but looking forward to it.

courts wise, clear one definitely has the best courts, smash's courts are a bit stiffer but still better than playing on gym floors. plus i believe they are one of the cheapest badminton courts.

A lot of people are enjoying khas now in Richmond. I'm going to be at Guildford recreation center not this Thursday but the following Thursday. I would be considered intermediate or advanced I guess. I don't mind playing with weaker players as long as they are willing to work at it and run.

Text 6047794179.
Wednesday I play at Nikkei

Thursdays I will try to play Guildford nights.

Friday south surrey.

Saturday I have a team practice

Sunday (rarely) south surrey mornings

Sorry if this has been asked already and if I am thread jacking in anyway. I haven't played baddy in a long time and I was wondering what facilities are actually around in richmond now. Since the last time I played was when c2 was still called c2 and not browgate lol, I have no idea what facilities are open for drop in and court rentals.

If I may ask, I was wondering which place is cheapest for court rental as well.

Thanks in advance everyone.

Here are the following places in Richmond that I know of and my personal feedback, this is by no means an exhaustive list, and each place has their own website where you can check the rates

Clear 1 - Leslie/Browngate - Leslie (original c1) - good lighting, now has 10 courts avail, nice courts overall, and ample space between courts

Smash (formerly Yumo) -Last time I was there a year/2 years ago it was super cold, I had to keep my sweater on during the first set, and throughout all the waiting I did off court. Lighting was ok not as spacious between courts as C1

Ace (close to River Rock) relatively new courts, again the courts are closer together than C1 and it feels like the mat/court itself is not as 'cushiony' if that makes any sense

Richmond Pro - haven't been, can't comment

Badminton Vancouver - haven't been, can't comment

Khas - haven't been, can't comment though I heard that this the newest one so far

Happy playing

been to khas drop in last last week on a friday for the 8-12am drop in. ($5)
facility is pretty nice. the mats are average nothing special. just like C1 browngate mats(obviously a lot newer tho)
has 16 freaking courts.

for badminton vancouver, ive never been there since its special invitational opening last year. i hated the flooring there. it was like playing on cement. definetly not forgiving wen u dive or fall on the floor.
