    Hi Everyone

    Can you help me with suggestions who to contact over social games say within 30 minutes drive of Melbourne CBD.

    I recently retired as a very fit 57YO economist and took up Badminton. My coach tells me I'm a better than average social player and that seems true based on games with friends who learnt to play many years ago. Alas, the friends all have to work for a living. [ha, ha.]

    I would love to play mid week during the day. (I like the purpose built Altona courts, BTW. They are an easy drive from the CBD.)

    John

    There's PBA in boxhill south. Every Wednesday and Friday Morning 10am - 12pm.
    Friday group is generally stronger than the Wednesday group.

    Address:
    15 Hays Street
    Box Hill South 3128
    Melbourne VIC

    I also want to play a daytime session. Prefer Thursday 1-3pm or earlier, Wednesday 3-5pm. Prefer Altona Badminton Stadium. I'll play doubles, mixed doubles, or even singles. My level is B+. Boxhill south is too far for me. MSAC at Albert park is ok.

    John, We play on Saturdays (12 to 2) at Springvale Community Centre. Only a small group (mostly in 50's and 60's), 2 courts, and average standard.

    Hi Everyone,

    Fuchun and I are commencing playing mid-Wednesday afternoons at Altona.

    All welcome, regardless of playing standard.

    If you're interested, please message me.
