    Any competitive player interested in playing at Mitchell Field CC? I found it near my neighbourhood, located near Yonge/Finch.

    I went to check out the place, it seems to have decent enough floor/lighting/ceiling.

    However, it certainly lacks competitive players. This is why I'm looking.

    I play feather and singles + doubles. Let me know if you're interested. Arthur 647-297-4628

    Drop-ins are available on...

    Sunday 2:30-4pm, again at 5:45-7:15pm.

    Monday 1-3pm.

    Hi Arthur,

    I am interested in playing with you as I live around that area as well. What day is the best day for you to play? Personally, I prefer to come in a non-busy day, perhaps Monday is the best day???

    I play with either Feather or Plastic, it does not matter but preferably with plastic as it is the least expensive compare to Feather.

    Please let me know if you are still interested.

    Thanks

    Garry

    Hi Arthur,

    I just see your posting. I guess it's a bit too late for me to drop by and play. Instead I will just go there now and have a look at the level of play there. Once I get there, I am the Asian tall guy wearing a glasses and with a knapsack.

    Thanks

    Garry

    hey i just got back from scouting, sry that i missed you, i got there too early lol. there were mostly chinese aunties there, i think it's safe to say, there's definitely a need to find competitive players.

    Fun match-up but my initial bet's on Arthur.
    Arthur = more experienced.
    Garry = more athletic.

    LOL bernard, you know this Garry guy?

    Your comment is a bit ambiguous, but I think I catch your drift... or do I?

    Jeez, you make me look like an old guy.... "more experienced" lol.

    I use to play against Garry a lot at an indonesian club that disbanded last year.
    You're more experienced cuz you play tournaments (AND you're old, lol). Whereas he's 6ft tall, built like a tank and creates great angles, hence more athletic. When Garry's on his game, he's really good. But when he's inconsistent, it's pretty much game over. Right Garry? :D

    nah, 90min sessions are not worth the 1/2hr commute.

    Hey Bernard, long time no see, lol you know me pretty much Bernard. Where do you play now?? I missed playing Single with you. I have been practicing a lot since the club disappear, have been doing lots of drill and badminton lately especially in Single. I hope I am getting better now lol. Do you still play with Eugene??? leave me a message if you are playing badminton somewhere closer to North York. I might join you. Thanks

    Hi,

    Why don't you guys play at edithvale cc every saturday from 5:30-7:30; line up usually starts at 5:00. Kind of 50/50 recreational/competitive depending on your opponent lol...unfortunately no single (not sure if I still have the stamina to play single anymore haha)

    txt me if you are interested 905-324-6259; I guess I can also play in mitchell field but I have not tried it. I live in yonge and empress area (only weekend) as I work in Niagara area on weekdays lol

    cheers,

    Denis
