    Hi Chris, just wonder whether you've been to the Southern Star at 52 Henderson Road, Keysborough, which is run by Irvan Lay, ex-Indonesian. Kim brought us there during the MCG. That was FEND walking towards the entrance with his badminton gear.

    Hi Loh,

    Yes, I know Irvan Lay and his Southern Star Stadium.

    During the Northern Ireland Team's stay in Melbourne for the Commonwealth Games 2006, I took them there on 2 occasions; (1) to spar with Southern Star's best players, and (2) to spare with top Australian players who did not participate in the Games.

    Because of the better ex-Olympics court carpet at Southern Star, the England Team was also using that venue for their their training.

    Looks like FEND was carrying 10 rackets in his bag.

    Hi Chris@CCC,

    I think i might go to that one instead of the Sunday session @ Albert park once this Glen Waverly one starts. Coz it's on Friday night... the time looks good to me. For the moment, I am not sure if i am attending by myself.. there's someone i know who might also be interested.
    However, please keep me informed with any new changes.

    Email: lily_power0807@hotmail.com
    ( note: there is a "underscore" between the word lily and power. ie. lily_power )

    Cheers,
    Lily

    Greetings,

    Good news!!! Our group is formed, even though we are starting small.

    We will play at Glen Waverley, every Fridays, 8:00pm to 10:30pm, starting on Friday, 28-April-2006.

    Since we have 4 courts and 8 players(at the moment), we are still accepting new players.

    Also, because we have so many courts for so few players, this is an opportune time to players who love playing games of Singles.

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    Greetings,

    Some Private Messages are asking if we are playing with feathers or plastic shuttles.

    Answer = Feathers Shuttles.

    Hi Kevin, I see you're really starting again. I'm sure you'll all enjoy yourselves.

    Congratulations Chris for taking the initiative. May your group grow bigger and stronger! :)

    With best wishes from Singapore. :p BTW, don't forget to post some pics in due course.

    Sorry,

    We cannot start the Glen Waverley Fridays' session earlier.

    On Fridays, I have a coaching session from 3:30pm to 5:30pm, and I have also been approached by some players, requesting for coaching from 6:00pm to 7:30 at Hawthorn/Clayton North.

    Therefore, the social session at Glen Waverley will be Friday 8:00pm to 10:30pm.

    Perhaps I can combine Hawthorn/Clayton North and Glen Waverley together. Let's have some more discussions as time goes by.

    Cheers... chris@ccc
