    Hiya, I have been searching for a while even whilst I am here in Abu Dhabi.

    Unfortunately, I am unable to find any clubs to play in, though the ICS just organised a baddy tournament recently, which I missed.

    Now, are there any baddy players out there in Abu Dhabi willing to take me? I am a decent player, rather competitive by nature. Hence I would appreciate a good game somewhere.

    Anyone out there willing to give me some pointers? I will be based in Abu Dhabi for quite some time.

    Hiya, well nothing much happening yet as far as I can see. The only place I found so far is in Khalifa City A/Raha Beach. You can find out more at DUplay.com/AbuDhabi.
