Find distinctive badminton courts

Junxiong Badminton Hall and Fukang Badminton Hall

Convenience: ★★★★
Environment: ★★★
Rental: ★★★★☆

The two halls are in a former factory building that looks worn from the outside. But the environment is quite different inside the building. Bunches of players are often found sweating on the courts. These kinds of badminton courts that are constructed in factory buildings or warehouses have become very popular lately. They save on costs, as there is no need to rebuild the buildings. That means rentals are lower, making them an attractive option. You pay only 10 yuan for an entire afternoon of time at Fukang.

Address: No.125, Liwan Beilu, Liwan District
Bus: Liwan Lu Stop: 15, 52, 55, 88, 133, 196, 268, 413, 530, 555, 705

Shamian Badminton Hall

Convenience: ★★★★
Environment: ★★★★★
Rental: ★★★★

Shamian is the site of the oldest badminton court in the city. An outdoor badminton court is said to have been built in the east of Shamian Island some time during the 18th or 19th century, and it was used by only consular officials and a few foreign businessmen. Today, there are no longer badminton courts at the same site, but exotically beautiful scenery in Shamian has its own appeal to many players. There are 10 indoor badminton courts in the hall next to the Shamian tennis courts.

Add.: No.5, Shamian Nanjie, Liwan District
Metro: Line 1, Huangsha Station, Exit D
