I've been playing badminton here for years, ever since middle school and love it. It is a bit secluded and not many know about its existence. Why not have more fun and prosperity by letting others know about this wonderful place of birdies and blue rubber.
There really isn't a leader or manager or person who is in charge of this badminton club in Augusta, Georgia, but in my belief to continue expansion and survival of this great sport in this warm city, I decided it would be a good idea to have some kind of base for information and contact so others can learn about us.
As time permits, I'll post pictures, information, and other updates on this blog to enhance the knowledge and presence of this club. If anyone has any questions/concerns/ideas/jokes/anything, feel free to email me at : augusta.ga.badminton at gmail dot com.
When: Thursday nights at 6:00PM to 8:30PM
Where: Garrett Gymnasium on Eisenhower Dr. off of Washington Rd. and the Augusta National Golf Course. Exact address for your GPS: 1100 Eisenhower Dr. / phone number:(706) 821-1775
What you need: Admissions is free(thanks to our tax dollars).
You'll need your own racquet and birdies(feather/plastic, your discretion). If you don't have these, me or someone may be able to lend you one for a game or two. Please let us know in advance.
Preferable non-marking rubber sole shoes on the lovely rubber flooring. Sneakers/tennis shoes are fine. Barefoot playing really hurts after a little bit.
There are different levels of players here, from good to new. There are 3 courts with lines for single/doubles play. Majority of the time is spent with doubles' play because of the amt. of people we have.
There will hopefully soon be a Tuesday nights of badminton also, but I am in need of some supplies to make it happen.(more on this in the upcoming posts)
Wooohoooo! Let's play some badminton! (At least on Thursday's, and soon to be Tuesday's, anyways.)
