There are six courts inside a well-lit building that is solely dedicated to badminton. It makes for a great indoor activity on a rainy day in Seoul.


The surface is painted green cement. It has good give and grip.


  • It is indoors.
  • The building is well lit.
  • There are six courts.
  • The locals are very friendly. So much so, that they might even start teaching you how to play.
  • There are birdies available for public use. However, they are a bit worn.


  • Although there are six courts, they do get busy. Be prepared to wait your turn.
  • If the courts are busy, be prepared to play doubles or share a court.
