Badmington in Corralejo
« on: September 30, 2019, 20:58:20 pm »
Hi,
As a frequent visitor, I would love to keep my badmington going whilst here.
Years ago, I saw they had the court lines marked out at the town sports centre, but no nets.
I have also seen rackets and shuttlecocks for sale.
Anyone know if there any groups or other folk that would be interested
Idealy for over 55's would be great.
Chris

Sadly, I’m afraid you are out of luck re badminton in Corralejo and on the island in general! It’s quite popular with youngsters and early teens, with a couple of thriving clubs for juniors in the Gran Tarajal and Tuineje area, but no adult clubs at all. Prior to moving here we played two or three times a week in the UK to a good league standard, and assumed we could keep it going here....but sadly not! We’ve switched partly to tennis, but our passion is now padel - plenty of opportunities to play, and great for integrating with other nationalities. Worth having a go? I’d recommend it!

Thanks for the reply, as I thought, hey ho.
I know of padel, tried it a couple of times, I have to say not good, maybe another try when I am next over.
