    Greetings,

    I may be travelling to Osaka for maybe 2 or 3 days in the 1st week of Jan 2014.
    I am high-intermediate... around provincial B level in Canada.
    Does anyone know of a place I may get a game?

    Hi! I'm in Osaka right now, but I don't know where to play... I think most of the universitys have badminton courts. If you are familiar with the language you can check this link: http://osakaunivbadteam.if.land.to It would be nice if we can play! I'm a B-class player in Sweden.
    I will stay in Osaka for about 2 month's.

    Hi Vinge! Thanks for replying and sorry for my late reply. I'm sorry we were not able to get a game together in Osaka this time. It would have been awesome! I had to book my ticket with Peach (I might have got one of the last tickets) and they charge for every piece of checked-in baggage. Since I didn't see any replies before then (browser cache refresh problem?), I decided to just go with a small carry-on bag. Something made me refresh this page today then I saw your message. Sorry about that.

    Will you be going back to Sweden after Osaka? Can I contact you for a game if I visit Sweden?

    I'm looking for reasons to visit Sweden.
    Maybe I just found one! :D

    Just curious, do most players in Sweden use feather shuttles and how common are facilities with rubber mat floors?

    OK!
    Almost every player use feather shuttles, it's just beginners or that use plastic shuttles...
    I think most of the facilities have rubber mat floors, like 75% or something.
    Just ask if you have more questions ;)
