What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in playing badminton in the larger Houston area. All skill levels are welcome.

Our main purpose is to help organize badminton practice during off-peak hours: weekend mornings and evenings, and weekdays mornings and afternoons. Our group could also be used to facilitate league play, when this picks up.

A list of places to play in Houston can be found at http://houstonbadmintonclub.org/

MeetUp members will choose which group they want to play on. Each group will be limited to up to ten players.

Otherwise, you will have to pay the one-time admission fee--unless you have a membership. As part of the sponsorship offered by the center, we benefit from off-peak fees ($7 for adults and $5 for seniors/juniors)--but you will have again to mention to them that you are with the Meetup group * Please bring shoes with non-marking soles, preferably for indoor use * You can rent a racket from the center if you don't have your own * Last but not least: as a courtesy to the other players, please be ready to provide new shuttles of decent quality when playing games. You can purchase some from the front desk. Keep in mind that good quality shuttles can cost about $2 apiece; while not cheap, they do tend to last longer than the cheaper ones. The front desk would sell us shuttles by single piece, upon request. I hope to see you all on the badminton court!
