Where can I play badminton?
I would like to know if there are any badminton courts in Phuket. I am looking to play either friendly matches or join a court that requires a membership./FONT>

Joe Dan, Phuket.
Saphan Hin in Phuket City is the center of badminton on the island, with public badminton courts open in the day and early evening.
Standard-sized courts are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
There are also some private badminton courts at the back of the OTOP Shopping Plaza on Rat-U-Thit 200 Pi Rd in Patong.
Our facilities, located at 106/1 Phattana Thongtin Rd, Tambon Talad Nua, in Phuket City, off feature four rubber courts and four cement courts that meet competition requirements and the same standards as the Saphan Hin badminton courts.
We are open daily from 10 am to 10 pm. The fee to use the rubber courts is 150 baht per hour and the cement courts cost 100 baht per hour. If needed, badminton equipment is available to rent.
Membership costs 1,200 baht per year, which entitles you to a 20% discount and allows you the opportunity to reserve courts in advance with just a phone call.
The advantage of using commercial badminton courts is that you can play for as long as you want and do not have to worry about hurrying off the court because other people are waiting for it.
For more information or to reserve a court call 089-6452848.
