Shuttlecocks flutter and fly through Bay Badminton Center’s three well-lit facilities, which are fully stocked with modern amenities and all of the equipment needed to play the classic sport. During drop-in play, players engage in a day of unlimited 30-minute matches, challenging friends on open courts or sitting out for a brief interlude to pluck “Stairway to Heaven” on racket strings. Each location hosts at least nine regulation-size courts, each equipped with the shock-absorbent Robbins floor system to protect joints. Players depart with a windfall 6 or 12 Yonex Mavis 500 Championship Tournament shuttlecocks, which fearlessly collide with rackets and can be used as makeshift party hats for pet birds. Once competitors have exhausted their service skills, they can enjoy the clean locker rooms and free WiFi available at each location.
Bay Badminton Center
Fueled by a passion to make the Asia-born sport of badminton more accessible and popular here in the United States, the founders of Bay Badminton Center lovingly maintain 37 regulation courts across three locations. They’ve designed everything to let players concentrate on their game, from an electronic court-queuing system that keeps everyone in order to adequate lighting that reduces strain on the eyes. They even installed a full Robbins flooring system that allows players to lob shuttlecocks back and forth without worrying about slipping on a mat or being unkind to their leg joints. After games, guests can hit the shower-equipped locker rooms to rinse off. Players who haven’t yet surgically replaced their hand with a racket can rent one or buy one at the fully equipped pro shop at each location.
