    I'm planning to go to Adelaide this coming April. Just want to know if anyone from this forum is from Adelaide or studying in Adelaide.

    Good, I'll like to partner the up-and-coming star again. Ever since your last trip, I've been bullied in the court and got thrashed very so often that I'm now beginning to lose my confidence and self-esteem! :(

    I need you 'desparately' to do the necessary to uplift my play and psyche again.

    Also, taneepak will be sending me some of his 'specially crafted' rackets for testing via his KL relative who will be visiting Hong Kong this month, I think. Your trip here will be quite timely in helping me:

    (1) to test the rackets with my friends and other BF'ers, like Mongoose and company in Jurong East, and

    (2) to return the rackets to taneepak's relative in KL (maybe after further testing by your KL friends, of course with taneepak's prior approval).

    Please let me know your date of arrival and do bring more than one racket, otherwise you will have to continue to use my 'antique' Carbonex. Of course taneepak's specialities are also available by then, hopefully! :D

    Normally after hours play for me personally, pretty busy during days.
    Bit of a badminton tragic though so I hit most days of the week.
    Can def organise a hit no probs for any time you have free when you come.

    Normally play out of the Badminton SA headquarters at Lockleys near the airport.

    Shuttle not provided. Hmmm never tried bringing shuttles to Australia. Do you think the quarantine officers would allow me to bring 1 or 2 tubes of shuttlecocks if ever?

    Lots of my friends flying from malaysia have brought in some in personal baggage. Sometimes get through sometimes not.

    There are plenty of shuttles to be bought here though, pro shop located in the hall. Happy to sort out that situation locally
