Message from Mune, the founder of this club:
After coming back from drinking places in Roppongi or anywhere else in the midnight or even early morning, did you sometimes find a tired and lifeless face in the mirror?? have you ever thought that, "Am I all right to be like this?"
I have originally set up a Japanese badminton club in Nakano-ku, but also welcomes international badminton friends in Tokyo area. Having been running an international club, Albatross Badminton Club in Minato-ku for some years, now we have more than 25 members, mostly business professionals from all over the world. Please feel free to ask me about the club or just about general badminton activities, shop info and exercise environment in Tokyo.
Skill level would be different between players, and of course there are variety of options to play badminton here in Japan with whom, where, and how. Our international badminton mates are basically trained and experienced players who at least know basic strokes and footwork, and if you also have it, you could definitely enjoy playing with us. For more advanced players, we could give some tips of info about other higher level clubs and tournaments.
Our international group usually make it on Fridays and Saturdays in turn in Minato-ku. We just have fun play to enjoy badminton, then sometimes go to have a drink and yakitori. We are not always hiring new members due to the court capacity reason, but when available, I would post a want ads to Metropolis.
But anyway, I could tell something about Japanese badminton activities and information resource to let you find clubs and shops. Please feel free to email me to get the info.
