Badminton partners/training in Basel

Dear All,

I just got a badminton racket and want to find a partner in Basel. Or any suggestion of where to play.

I don't play that well but hope I can improve, I believe a private coach must be very expensive! any good idea?

Thanks!

Re: Badminton partners/training in Basel

I'd be interested in setting up regular games if any other EFers are interested.

I'm about average-to-OK - used to be OK to good, but haven't played in a while so a bit rusty and limp-wristed

OP & anyone else let me know if you are interested. Late evenings are better for me - say from 1930 hrs onwards.

Re: Badminton partners/training in Basel

Hi,

I do as CoolCD rightly says play each week. There are 3 places I know where you can play badminton in Basel. In Allschwill there is the Van der Merwe and Vitis and Obwerwil there is the badminton Center at Mühlemattstrasse 9.

I usually play with a colleague on Tuesdays but I am interested in playing a second night in the week.

What do you want to do ?

Have fun
Martin

Re: Badminton partner in Basel

BaselLife and I managed a knock-about a couple of weeks ago and have another planned next week.

There was another person looking for games on this thread.

I'd be happy to have a game or two, but every other day is a bit too pro for me

Weekday evenings are better for me. PM me if interested.

Re: Badminton partners/training in Basel

Hello to all in the forum!

It's been a while since this thread was posted to. Anyone interested in a game? Newly landed, over 40 but still with lots of spring in my step!!

I once heard badminton described as "tennis for chimpanzees... !" LOL....

Re: Badminton partners/training in Basel

Oh dear, it looks like Basel-City is a graveyard for badminton & tennis! I'm really shocked!

If there's anyone out there in Basel in a similar position, get in touch and let's try to arrange something....

Re: Badminton partners/training in Basel

I'd like to set something up, but time is an issue and with a yoing family, I'm really only available late evenings. Time at the mo is an issue, but should be better in the new Year.

There are lots of badminton places and clubs, and when we play the courts are packed. What about going local or putting up an ad in the clubs?

I'd be interested in playing, although it's been quite a while since I was last on a badminton court.

Re: Badminton partners/training in Basel

Thank you Etin for that excellent post. It seems as if there is some badminton life in Basel, so I have to apologise for not doing more research.

JohnE, I'm happy to play anytime & Carlos R, let me know if you are still available to play in the new year! Oh, and if anyone ever needs an extra person to make up a 4 just send me a PM. Now to research Etin's list.....
