    Hi,

    Was wondering if there was any Candians in Hong Kong for the summer ?? I have just arrived into Hong Kong for a few days and was wondering where would be a good place to play badminton? I will be watching the HK annual tonight (Saturday) and perhaps find out more about badminton in Hong Kong. Anyhow, lets see how many replies I get ! heheheehehe !!

    Perhaps you guys can tell us more like roughly what your standard is, where about you live, and what time you available to play, etc... so BC members can better help you find the right club... ;)

    Hi Xo_BaddyGrl_oX,

    I had found a group to play with here in HK. You could private message me if you want to join us. So, far it has been fun. Let me know what your level of play is and I am sure the group I play with will welcome more players

    Well all in all , I'll be in HK and some other places in China for about a month and half ( leaving this sat. !! can't wait ) . I'm mainly going to be staying around in GuangZhou , where most of my relatives are . But I'll be in HK for like a week or so ( sight seeing and such ) . It'll be great if I can play badminton there .

    btw ( send me info on the badminton place you found :) )

    ... in GuangZhou , you can play at Wei Lun Sports School every night ... I haven't been there yet but I'm planning to . It's really expensive though ... 25 yuan an hour ... o_0

    where is WeiLun sports school nei? I can do the drop-in there or need to go with my partner? 25 yuan per hour is not too expensive in guangzhou nei, many badminton clubs charge the same price. but the problem in guangzhou's badminton clubs is................no A/C in the summer............. >.<

    It's near ChangXing street in the TianHe district ... take BUS 54 where it's available and Wei Lun Sports School is the second last stop . You can get on the bus by going to Tian He Sports Centre ( which is near the subway if you live really far away ) . I'm not really sure about the time though 7- 8:30 p.m maybe . When I went there to watch my cousin train , there were tons of courts available so I played there for a while . Wei Lun Sports School is quite famous in GuangZhou though ... as some pro badminton players were developed there .
