Can someone please advise for sports club / places for playing squash / badminton in Ulsan?
Not many foreigners play squash in South Korea, but actually alot of Koreans do. I used to live in Ulsan and Busan and played squash in both places. Ulsan has two clubs. One at the Univeristy (never played there). One is in Daldong and I played there for a year. Great club, friendly people and nice social atmosphere. Membership is about 100,00 won a month for unlimited access to courts or 10,000 for a game. You just rock up and play. It is opposite the Lottemart in Daldong a little way up the street nextdoor to a Jack Nicholas golf store. Sorry can't be more specific its been three years since I was there.
Let me know if its still going and tell them Ric sent you.
Where did you used to play squash in Busan?
I played a couple of places in Busan. Once in Gimhae upstairs from a Vietnamese restaurant (very nice) Once in Oncheon which was very busy and friendly. Played most regularly in a place by Hwangyeongsan. Just ask for Haeundae appt Hwangyeonsan and they will take you by taxi. Get out at the bottom of the hill up through the appartment buildings, by the two corner stores and walk through the middle of them up towards the mountain. There is a building one the right handside. The first part is a church, the second part leads down some stairs and the club is there. Four awesome glassbacks that play really nice. Very friendly. Again 100,000 for a month (including two lessons a week) if you are serious about playing or 10,000 for a time. Not much English is spoken but they are a friendly bunch.
Thanks a lot for the information. I will visit there and give your reference.
I will surely update more info once i visit there..
have a good day :)
