    Hehehe... More like learn from u. Still 'young' n not that good yet. Plus I assume u're a guy? Guys are usually unfairly born with an advantage of being better in strength. So u 'pang chiew' also ya? I can't win against intermediate/high intermediate guys yet. Hopefully can learn more

    yeah, but i'm getting old and fat, so that cancels out the guy strength thinggie. anyway, badminton is not about strength! hahahah.

    i need to get all your guy's and gal's emails so that we can organise something at the end of the year.

    rm8 an hour sounds pretty much like the going rate at the moment.
    i thought it should be free if you're a resident?

    Most condos/apartments still charge residents. No such thing as free. Even U-Garden. Terrible ppl.

    i guess that's there to stop people block booking and not turning up. but i would have thought the rate would at least be cheaper cause those residents already pay their monthly service charge, which should partially cover these items ...

    i didn't know there were courts there.
    if you don't mind me asking, what do they use for the surface of the court? wood?
    how much do they charge per hour?
    how many of you are playing there on thursdays?
