Since I am an active player in some of the Boston area
badminton clubs, I want to provide this info for others who are
interested. For completeness, I note both private and closed
clubs in the area, but my main focus is on the public groups,
which tend to play from October through April in various school
and town gyms around the Boston metropolitan area.
Also, there is some group which plays in Worcester at Worcester Polytech,
but no one has provided enough details to me to provide a page.
