    I'm working there now and looking for someone to practice and play games as my double partner. I'm about low intermediate level.

    York U badminton club meets on Mondays and Thursdays, 2:45 - 4:15. Anyone?

    Tammy,
    Contact Nick. He is in his first year at York. I don't know what events he plays. Whatcha studying in York? I'm an alumni of York (Winters) back in the black ages. :D :D

    Hey WWC thanks for the referral :),


    Hey Tammy,

    I play mixed, doubles and singles. I practice on tues, thurs and fridays 6:30-8:30 however practice is only for Varsity team members sorry. Tammy i'm guessing your a girl? Don't get me wrong i'm just assuming your a girl by your name. If you're looking for a female doubles partner i would suggest trying to play in a more competitive environment like at Rosemount Community Centre or at George Brown College. I play at George Brown on Sundays from 4-8pm however they also have badminton on tuesday and thursday nights. I think it's from 7-10 pm. i hope this helps. Oh for rosemount community centre it's monday, wednesday, friday, saturday and sunday.

    Cheers,
    Nick

    WWC, I go to U of Toronto though, (computer science, almost finished). I got a job at York and am working there. It's a very nice place.

    Nick, Thanks for the info. I don't think I have time for varsity practice and I'm not that advanced :) GBC sounds good. How does the club work (membership fee? drop-in fee?) Do people take turn every 15 min?

    shaun, I just sent you an email.

    Hey tammy GBC membership fee goes by every 6 months. 100 dollars for half a year. So it's a pretty good deal considering the competition. It's round robin. Here's a tip get to know everyone so you don't get left out of the loop. Drop by this sunday i'll be there. I'll be the one with the huge yellow volki bag :). Hope this helps. Sundays turn out will be from 4-8 pm. See ya.

    Cheers,
    Nick

    When I went to Toronto, I used to say I came from "london" on being introduced to people.

    Without fail I'd have to explain "London..........England!"!

    The Guest fee is 7 dollars Nsmash and policy? I don't think there is one however try to where pieces of clothing that is one colour instead of multiple colours. Follow the OBA rules. Hope this helps.

    Toronto and Ontario, respectively.
