Foreigner friendly recreational Badminton

Recommended Posts

Last night walking home I cut through one of the ZU campus and came across a huge gym filled with people of all ages playing badminton. It looked like awesome fun. Reminded me how much I loved playing this sport when I was young. Any ideas of a place one can go to play recreationally and meet other players to play against that is foreigner and family friendly and welcoming of all levels of players?

I don't really think you can find regularly playing, exclusively-foreigner group out there. I do know lots of chinese + occasional foreigners badminton groups in Hangzhou. Where do you live? Maybe i can hook you up with some of the groups and what is ZU campus? Zhejiang university campus?

Close to Hangzhouo Da Sha at the intersection in front of the famous restaurant "Xin Bai Lu" there is a 6 floor building where at 5th floor you can play badminton.

There is also a room for ping pong, dart, on the 4 floor there is bowling etc

I'm also really interested in Badminton for fun.  I used to play once or twice every week before. If anyone knows a place where I could play badminton during weekends or anytime after 6pm near /on Nan Shan road or anywhere in Xi Hu district would be nice! Thank you! :) Still trying to settle in here and hopefully join some sport activities I will enjoy :D

    • Hi, Saikot. I'm looking for a female partner.  You could send me your contact info.I may introduce my friend who is interested to you.
    • I am myself a Victim of Privilege Wealth Scam (payday loan investment scam) which Brett Jolly is behind.   The company's directors are Richard Colwell, in whose name the notice was published; Mark Munnelly, and Martin Sampson, all of whom are facing potential substantial liabilities as a result of the estimated more than $40 million investment fraud that was perpetrated by the Privilege Wealth Group, which comprised companies and individuals in several countries, most notably England, Gibraltar, Luxembourg, Panama, and Spain.   Reported by OffshoreAlert, the ultimate controlling person in the group was British serial fraudster and disqualified U.K. company director Brett Jolly, a.k.a. James Jolly, while other senior participants included Munnelly, Sampson, British salesman Andrew Sweeney, and South African attorney Peter Stokes.   The payday loan scam model is: they claim to lend money to the poor people in US at an interest rate between 200-390% per year and in this way the group assures its investors a high profit. And there is even an insurance to insure all loan capital against loss, wrongful acts and default. Based on the description of the insurance provided by Privilege Wealth, the insurance can guarantee the capital of the investors in case of Crime (internal and external), Cyber Attract and Capital shortfall.   This scam is reported by David Marchant of the blog Offhshorealert- https://www.offshorealert.com/ and by Tony Hetherington of Mail on Sunday- http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/experts/article-4763678/Banned-11-years-1m-bogus-investment-cheat.html   Here are Brett Jolly's famous scam stories:   - 16 years ago, Brett Jolly's Holland Moorehouse in South Africa made more than 8000 people lose their investment for holiday accommodation and he left SA in a sudden without anyone knowing.   https://www.iol.co.za/news/south-africa/timeshare-dream-turns-into-a-nightmare-79184   - Here are some other investment scams beside pay day loan of Privilege Wealth and Creditech:   Timber in Ghana to get minerals in Ireland / Non-existing property in Brazil / Carbon credits......   - Professional stuff and website, beautiful stories at beginning. - Pretending London-based offices / stuff turned out to be in Spain. - Partnership in Gibraltar never used banks of Gibraltar, instead, all transactions were made to UK accounts. - Never received your title of what you have invested or in the case of Privilege Wealth, no new contract regarding the resolution. - No one answered the phones / emails/ etc and all the directors disappeared after you put money in. - Companies went to liquidation. - Brett Jolly argued that he was a victim himself ( he really enjoys arguing and being a victim himself ).   http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/green-planet-property-investment-scam-2860441   http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/experts/article-2516152/Green-Planet-Investment-promoted-Lee-Sharpe-closed-investors-lose-14m.html   http://www.redd-monitor.org/2013/03/07/anglo-capital-partners-another-boiler-room-scam/   https://www.lovemoney.com/news/24425/why-this-property-investment-was-wound-up-by-the-high-court   http://www.insolvencynews.com/article/16294/corporate/brazilian-land-scheme-firm-wound-up-by-high-court   http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/10843101.Southend_businessman_facing_fraud_probe_after__investment__firm_loses___14million_invested_by_300_people/   http://www.bbc.com/news/business-28013148   When you search for the “biggest diamond in the world” on Youtube, you can see Brett Jolly promoting this “amazing diamond” which was found out totally FAKE.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OT51mN6FLgI   https://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/oct/06/southafrica.international   https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/africa/worlds-biggest-diamond-revealed-as-fake-396153.html   These are the companies involved with these scammers which continue to propose "payday loan investment" to potential investors like Privilege Wealth did:   GENERAL WEALTH PORTFOLIO 1 LLC GENERAL WEALTH PORTFOLIO 3 LLC GENERAL WEALTH PORTFOLIO 4 LLC GENERAL WEALTH INC (INACTIVE) CREDITECH USA, INC (INACTIVE) CREDITECH USA, LLC C-TECH FINANCIAL CORP FINTECH SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT GROUP INC USC LOANS, LLC   Those companies are registered in Florida. Others such as Creditech / Investabl / International Portfolio Service / Prestan Invest are registered in UK.   Privilege Wealth is going to be put to liquidation as 77 of Brett Jolly's former companies. They are worse than a casino- with them, you will have absolutely no chance to win.   Jolly is now in Asia and he is targeting Asian and expat investors as his next victims. Please be cautious of these people and of payday loan investment scam. You want to make profits, they want your capitals.  
    • I have an English learning workshop with my partner. We teach kids and try to help them to experience various ways of learning a foreign language. Among all the ways, communicating to real English speakers as much as someone can is the best way to get promotion. So we have a practical idea like asking for foreign friends to join in our project. The learning project might be like this: 1.we will organize activities once or twice a month. (Going to visit museums and places of interest, experiencing authentic Chinese culture are gladly to be considered)  2.we will set up some language learning goals for the real scene.  3. Invite foreign friends to communicate with kids in English to have the “real chat” and finish the language goals concurrently. So according to above idea, we hope you are interested in Chinese culture and enjoy staying with children, and if you have teaching experiences, that will be so nice!!!  And the most important thing is that you will stay in Hangzhou for a long and stable time. If you have interest in this, please send me the private massage!!  
    • Hi,  I am interested to learn Chinese language and looking for a female partener intersted to exchange English-Chinese experience with me. I am in Binjiang District.   thanks...
