Question Badminton in Gurgaon?

Hey guys,

I just shifted to Gurgaon from Pune. I have been trying to find indoor courts and players to play with in gurgaon but it looks like a tall order. The only indoor court I have found is in DLF Phase 1 community center. However its always very corwded with 8 people to play a game sometimes.

Is there anyone who plays or knows people who play badminton in Gurgaon?
I live in Phase 4 and have no problems travelling somewhere in the morning to play badminton.

Thanks

hell_raiser - i am not too sure about sports clubs in Gurgaon, but there are a number of sports clubs that i can suggest in Delhi which have excellent Badminton facilities..
1) Siri fort sports complex (Near hauz khas) - 6 superb indoor courts (been playing here all my life..)
2) Saket sports complex (IIT road)- close(r) to gurgaon
3) Alaknanda club - GK2

since you dont have a problem to travel in the morning to play, you could consider these options, keeping in mind that the traffic early mornings is minimal.

hope that helps, you can PM me if you have any questions.

Plenty of places to play Squash/Badminton in Gurgaon. I'll list the places I've personally checked out:

1. HUDA Gymkhana Club - Good facilities, but only open to members.

2. "DLF City Clubs" - http://www.thecityclub.in. Only squash and only open to members. But membership is not that expensive, and the facilities are very very good.

3. Unitech Patio Clubs - http://www.unitechpatio.com. Club Patio has badminton while Nirvana Patio has squash. Again open to members only.

4. Excelsior American School - Has a separate sports building with excellent squash and badminton courts. Pay-n-Play (in non school hours) is managed by a firm called Duplays.
https://duplaysgurgaon.playpass.com/. My favorite, but tends to get crowded on weekends.

Beside the above, I'm aware of Ryders Sports Academy (Sec 44) and the sports complex in Ansal University (Sec 55), both pay-n-play. But haven't checked them out myself.

Bumping up an old thread. I recently came across a nice indoor badminton court in Chennai, near Kamakshi hospital in Pallikarnai. Its called Feathers Badminton Club (they have a facebook page). They have 2 synthetic courts and the charges are also very reasonable.

I could get a slot only in the 5.30 - 7am batch. Morning slots are more or less full, but do check it out if you're keen on playing.
