    Hey i organise a group to play on sunday's, normally around box hill/balwyn. Tomorrow we're playing at box hill from 11-3pm. You can email me or msn me at micromoggy@hotmail.com. Each week i have around 12-24 ppl playing, normally book 3-4 courts, a lot of girls playing as well but aren't that good.

    Normally its only 2 hours, and sometimes 3, just a very weird occasion that i booked for 4 this week :D. I just split the cost, and round to the nearest $, normally around $5-7. Depends how many shuttles some inaccurate ppl break as well :eek:. The problem is the group is getting very big, 20+ ppl, max turn out could be well over 30 now, so i'll be booking 4-6 courts, and most the time box hill doesn't have enough courts, so we play at balwyn sometimes, and ashburton sometimes...

    Just send me an email and i'll add ur email to the list. I hope i can get 5 courts this week, but it won't be at box hill. Most likely at balwyn, and thats one of the most annoying sports center to book courts at because they require their manager to be around, others aren't "allowed" to book courts for ppl, whatever that means. :rolleyes: If all fails....i'll have 3 courts at box hill.

    Nano-time your profile says you're an advance player, most the ppl in my group are REAL beginners, a few are intermediate, but if u want to come take a look i don't mind. I just think if you're too advanced you won't have much fun.

    Sadly i couldn't get more courts at box hill, so i tried boroondara, the manager said she'll get back to me (last time she said that she got back to me on friday which was too late to actually book courts anywhere else). So i've booked 5 courts from 11-1pm on sunday 30th march, at ashburton pool and recreation centre, located at (8 Warner Avenue, Ashburton, Victoria, 3147). Its around 10-15 minutes drive from box hill.

    I'm in the process of getting a permanent booking for 6 courts at box hill, but until that happens the venue will still be bouncing around where ever i can get the courts. This little 4 person social group has actually turned in 20ish regular ppl in half a year, quite challenging for my management skills :D.

    Leave a msg here if u'd like to come check it out this week, or if its too far i'll update next week on the location and time here again.

    Ashburton is a bit far for me. If you play at Balwyn or Box hill then that is fine for me.

    Hi, its not a club, its just a group thing i run. The address is surrey drive, box hill, the place is called aqualink box hill. There's no set price, its just a split between how many ppl turns up. I expect this sunday to be around $8 per person for the 3 hours.
