Default Badminton in Doha

I have been living in Qatar for almost three years now. I love playing badminton, but I cannot find a decent reasonably priced court.

There's a court next to Doha College, it's very cheap but you are lucky to get two games per evening as it's very popular. It's also a bit worn out and the aircon isn't good enough in Summer! I heard the Sheraton has a court but was told it costs thousands of Riyals per year to be a member.

Can you help?

Yes, Sheraton is closed for refurbishment; but they charge silly money.

I have looked at Time Out magazine, and that's where I found the other club.

I had heard that some compounds have badminton courts but never found out which ones or if they would let me use it.
