    I myself play at U of C club. It's open to public every friday night. There's a good mix of both competitive and beginners. The more competitive players use feather birds while the other use plastics.

    about half the players at u of calgary use feathers. Other clubs shown in the above link use plastic. Of course, if u bring feather, they don;t mind using it. It depends on your fren's level.

    Can he join any of you guys? At least it will be more comfortable for him to play with those people that i refer. Better than he walk in and dont know anyone. He plays well.
