Kaggadaspura/Indiranagar/Horamavu/Banaswadi are some places that I'm looking at.
*I currently know of 2 places, just wanted to know if others here are aware of more places and how much they charge:
Acti Sports Arena, Kaggadaspura
Altis Arena, near Horamavu/Banaswadi

Citi nest Indiranagar near esi hospital . Have seen quite a few people visiting it regularly. Check it out.

Sending you a PM Ravi. Cant wait to get started!

EDIT: Can't send you PM's. So lets have this discussion right here. What is your level of play? I am a shade below intermediate, I reckon. Would a 6 AM start be good for you? 6-7 is what I'm looking at - Mon-Fri. We could start easy and do thrice a week too and see how it goes. Like a Mon-Wed-Fri.

The place we can play at is here: https://www.google.co.in/maps/place/...65ae8181?hl=en

And here is an even closer option we could try: https://www.facebook.com/pages/PLAY-...58959157457047

What are the charges to use the court plus the facilities like change room or something? I would say I am a beginner as its been almost a decade when I last played.

I stay at Koramangala 1st Block so Vivas looks to be near.

No idea man. Never played there. But all these courts average between 150-200 bucks per hour.

Wouldn't Play Mania at bellandur be even closer? Vivas is at Marthahalli.

Hi Red Liner,
Both look fine. We can start at the place in HSR 27th main, say 3 days a week and see how it goes. I can play decent. Used to play in office earlier.
When can we start ? Next week looks fine for me...

Thanks! I know this place as well, forgot to add it in my list of known places.
Any others ? I'm still looking for other options but in the meantime planning to start at either the Horamavu or Kaggadaspura places.

I've been playing badminton every weekend at PlayMania, Bellandur. Pretty decent place with all levels of players visiting. However, I reside at Electronic City and one round trip is turning out to be more than 40km of travel.

Is anyone aware of any badminton courts in or around electronic city?

I stay in Bellandur but don't really like getting up early in the morning
Can plan for a day or two per week in the mornings though if you can't make it on evenings.

Sure that would be better. I work from 11 to 9, hence difficult in evenings.
PM me your details, we can catch up.
