    I've been playing badminton in school teams from Grade 8 to 10. I had formal training in those years. Then I just played recreational from grade 11 to University grad. So how advanced is advanced at ClearOne? I don't mind taking Intermediate, but Thursday doesn't work for me too well. Or can I go there in person to have the coaches decide?

    As I have just concluded my 'summer' training at C1, I find the program very helpful in improving certain aspects of my game. If you're serious about training for competition, I urge you to go for the advance group lessons and then follow up with private lessons. If you're content to playing competitive club games, just advance class alone will bring your game up a notch.

    In fact, someone told me that of all the group lessons offered at C1, only the advance class is of substantial help to intermediates as newbies often need more practice than lessons to improve. Darryl himself will evaluate your skills before admitting you into the advance class.

    Hope this helps:).

    It seems that for private lessons, you can't pre-book a set of weekly sessions. You'd have to sign up for one first-available which suits your schedule, show up for that sessions, then book the next one after your first has concluded. At least, that's with Rony.
