    Before it was okay but recently, it has been extremely packed. I stopped going there for 2 weeks already since i could not even play more than 1 game for 3 hrs session....:crying:

    I'm going tomorrow night 9pm-12 for the first time. It's pretty late so most likely there will be less people. Hopefully I'll be welcomed...since everyone else probably knows each other.

    Went there last night. 3 beginner friends. They had 6 courts. The courts are divided into advance intermediate and beginners.

    Extremely packed with at least a few groups behind each courts waiting to get on.

    Generally a younger crowd.

    We decided against paying the $3 to get in as we did not want to play the waiting game. The girl at the front said i would probably get one or two games for the next two hours!! Had some fun on the nearby tennis courts instead.

    Hope you have better luck.

    I went there four times now. Friday 9pm-12 and Saturday 8pm-11 for two weeks. There are just enough people. Winners can always stay. There are a bit less people on Saturday than Friday. If you come alone like me, you might have to play around at the beginner/intermediate courts because all the advance people already have their partners. It's quite easy to find a partner, too, since there are other people that come alone.

    The entry fee is $5 all the time. There is a coach there who gives private lessons, but I don't know the cost for that.

    Yes. I was told by the girl at the front to revisit during those hours as the courts are rented out by Coach Don Van. Entry is $5 instead of the usual $3 but there are far fewer players.

    I may try it sometime.

    Thanks for the heads up.
