    Helo talk2pixie,

    I am now temporarily based in Cagayan.

    What are the good places to play ?

    I tried Sports zone yesterday and it is OK and near to my base.

    Let me know.

    I am looking at playing in the early morning at around 7:00 or ealy evening at 6:00pm

    Hello Greenberg,

    Unfortunately, I haven't played at Sports Zone yet, but my group has tried playing there before.

    There's a new badminton court at Elipe Park, just within the Nissan compound, fronting Liceo de Cagayan University. Westside Badminton Court i guess. Haven't tried playing there yet though.

    Well, I'm the neophyte in the group actually hehe! They're the ones who kept pushing me to play badminton, till such time I came to like the game. I've started playing just last year though. The players in my group are in the intermediate level, and there are two of them who are in the professional level.

    Yeah, it's one of the best form of exercise. I'm so skinny then, so my purpose of playing badminton is for muscle firming and for me to gain some weight. And it worked out, indeed!

    Courts in CDO

    Depending on where you are are staying. Downtown, Sportzone would be convinient. Near the Hi-way, Shuttle square. Personally, I like and play at Sportszone, Its also near where I stay. Both are Taraflex and well lit. Hope this helps.

    Hi..it seem dat dugay2 ko nawala ani na forum and i missed the chance to meet some cagayanons who are badminton addicts like me. With regards to the topic about courts, i rate shuttle square as the best court, second is sportszone, third ang westsyd. SS has good ventilation, court set up and high ceiling is good and lots of courts, but the only setback is its far from the city and lisod ang parking esp if naa cock derby (since its just beside the colliseum). Almost the same with Sportszone pero lisod mag book since block na ang mga schedules. U have to be with a group para maka dula ka or play early instead. As to westside, gud ang court pero low level ang mga trusses sa building dat wud sabit sa mga lobe shots or clears. Pero for us addicts, basta naa lang dula k lang na hehehehe....Kahit injured pa nga, makakita lang ng court ayos na....Di ba? heheheh...keep posting guys. Maybe kitakits ra ta in one of d courts.

    Sportszone - join a group so that maka play ka since booked na most schedule. MWF - 8 to 10 Baddicts. TTH same time PASAKAY.
    Shuttle Square - No problem pag book.
    Westside - Be with a group din. MWF- 8 to 10PM ASTIG contact bebot.
    Actualy meron pang ibang courts like sa ALWANA, and Wency's. Pero they are not that good. Mura nga lang. Neway, enjoy playing bro!

    Sports Zone Friends

    Hey Butch and Quark, maybe we have played together already :) Yes I do get to play with Dante, last time was about two weeks ago. Was in CDO yesterday for a short trip and stopped by Sports Zone to say Hi ! to my friends and there was a big tournament going on. Left immediately after for Manila.

    Did you guys join the tournament ? How did you do if you did ?


    Let you guys know when I'm in CDO again and lets get a game together with the smashers

    Regards !
