    Owh yeah, ive been there several times and i dont like it hahahha lol. The ppl are nice but the courts are horrible. They need to repaint the walls or put covers at the back. Its so hard to play with white walls and white shuttles :D.

    For those lookin for info abt Badminton in Brunei. Visit http://badmintonbrunei.blogspot.com/

    oh. Well that depends what type of racket u wanna get. Yonex is always expensive where ever u get it from, but for me, i got mine from Ebay, Stadium sports(http://www.stadiumsports.net.au/), which is a local shop here. Some of the rackets starts bidding at very low price. I got my Yonex Arc Z saber for 180 bucks when i came out, and in normal retail shops theyre at 299AUD. Now its cheaper obviously, due to new rackets coming out.

    I should recommmend u Panda Power, a friend of mine is the australian distributer here. I got one of the PP trinity 2 rackets, its quiet worth the money and not only that, u can get specific balance points, head heavy or head light with different weights. What rackets do u currently use now?(also what strings and tensions) and what style do u play? (attacker, control, all rounder). Ive also used Apacs, from malaysia, not a bad range of rackets.
