    This is the first I've heard of a new club. I'd like to add my voice to the request for information. Where did you hear of this club? Maybe that would help narrow down the search field.

    I am interested in the club too.
    Is it going to be a newly built facilty? Or is it going to be in a rented school?

    Since it is going to be in Toronto, let's hope that it won't be as expensive as the Badminton and Racquet club...hehe....:D

    I'm not sure if this news relates to the club. But the other day, I was at Yo's Sports looking a racquets and overheard Koyo's conversation to some guy about the court area. The guy had some blueprints and floor plans about a court. Then Koyo was discussing about the lighting quality and how the ideal environment should be.

    You think this is related to that new club?

    ditto with lee's, i'd think they'd be dead by now with that attitude, onlything is they produce real good players and i respect the players at least.

    oh, who's going to UNofssa, maybe we can meet up?

    too bad the new club is gonna to be open in July! I'm hoping they can open before that so I can join the new club. Otherwise, I've to stick with Lee's. By the way, is Suzanna gonna be one of the coaches there? Do you know any other coaches' name?

    Plz post more info about this new place as soon as u guys know more!


    Btw... I will be playing with someone from nanashi's school.. we'll attempt to UPSET Justin and leslie.. They really arn't that good.. very easy to beat.... once we break their legs... and their racquet arm and cut a string on their racquets... we can beat them easily i bet..... they'll maybe only get 10 points at most!

    I also overheard about this club at Yo's in about mid-April. It was a chinese guy wanting to open one. I was there to check out the rackets and look for some grips. But they did talking about what zero said.

    I got some new information about this club but I assume most of you know about it. But for those of you who don't...

    The new club is called the Mandarin Club. It's on Steeles and Esna Park which is between Steeles and Pharmacy and Steeles and Warden. There's going to be 6 courts I believe and it opens on the first week of July.

    Thanks for the info. Didn't know about that. Do you have any more info you know that can share with us? :D

    My mom told me that some chinese newspapers have ads about a new club needing members. Can anyone verify it for me?...:rolleyes:

    lol, yeah, there are pics in the chinese newspaper.... i'm in them... haha.... but fortunately, you can barely see me... score!

    anyway, as for coaches, there are:

    Susanna (duh), a lady named Leung Fai, another lady named Yang Yu (or Yu Yang or whatever...) and a guy named Alvin (i THINK that's his name...)

    oh yeah.. and assistant coaches:
    Raymond Wong
    Cynthia Cheng
    Hin Cheng
    Kevin Li
    Leslie Tang
    (hope i didn't forget anyone...)

    i was offered the position, but i turned it down cuz i'm too good for that club.... yeah right.... i turned it down cuz i don't want to ruin their reputation... =)

    i went to the place a few weeks ago... they weren't even don building the place yet... but the layout is quite nice.... high ceilings, lots of space.... hopefully they do a little something about the lightning though... kinda uneven... but with all the lights there, it might not make a difference...
