    haha the infamous scramble for courts online. never used the system, and the only courts i ever got when booking in person were those at the earliest time slots in the morning

    doesnt matter. maybe we'll be luckier next time;)

    anyway if we miss in future, maybe chrislyn u could drop an sms to me. i walk pass siglap cc just about everyday, so booking the courts shouldnt be a problem. today however, found out that both courts there have been booked for ARCHERY(?????) on 15 feb.

    So Sorry Guys

    Hi everyone,

    i know that i've just managed to get this group going, however, i'm having a real problem getting courts in the east on fridays 8-10pm both in the sports halls and the community centres. Bedok sports hall is almost impossible to get for some reason, & from what i've been checking online since 2 weeks ago, siglap CC & most of the other courts in CCs in the east seem to be booked up just as quickly during that time slot. Usually only tampines central cc still has courts, perhaps it's because the courts can't be booked online & have to be booked over the counter.

    i know that we've not even had our first session, but i'm really sorry to have to inform you that for the above-mentioned reason, i will not be able to keep this group going. Last week, i was still able to make my way to tampines central cc to book the courts over the counter the moment it's open for booking at 9am, but i'm not able to do so this time round to get courts for 22 Feb.

    I'D LIKE TO APPEAL TO:
    1) anyone who has the time & resources to get courts in the east on a weekly basis to take over leadership of the group. Do email me at chrislyn82@gmail.com if you're interested to take over or if you know anyone who has the capacity to do so.
    2) those of you who already have regular groups going (preferably in the east) to help take some of my members in if possible. Do feel free to list your group/contact details in this thread (including day, time, venue & approximate level of play). Thanks a lot...

    If no one's able to take over leadership of this group, i'm afraid that i'll have to close the groupeven though it has barely started. My sincerest apologies to all my members. Thank you all so much for your support/assistance all this while, really appreciate it. You've been really great. Sorry that i didn't manage to pull this through as initially intended. It's really tough, especially for a joker like me with little/no experience in the area. I honestly have no idea how groups out there manage to get their courts every week during peak hours. Anyone who has a clue how they pull it off (apart from queuing at the office from 4+am & waiting for it to open for booking), do enlighten me...

    Really really sorry guys... we still have our game on Friday 15 February, 8-10pm, tampines central CC as previously announced... see you guys there. Hope we'll be able to work something out soon. Thanks for your patience & understanding, apologies once again...
