    Hi all,

    I'm from Newark, CA. I used to play back in highschool (Pioneer High, South San Jose). Took a long break from the sport and now getting back in again. I usually play at UBC or Z.

    :)

    Hello ncloud,

    Good to know that I'm not the only one who's getting back into the sport. I haven't played at those clubs yet.

    Have fun here at badminton central.

    From the SJ side you probably play more at Bintang or Smash City? I venture south from time to time.

    Yes and no, I don't really have money to play open gym so I rarely do. I only play if people ask me to come out to play and I know I'll get some good games in.

    By the way, you should sign up for the Santa Teresa doubles tournament. I think it would be fun to see other BC people play.

    ^^Just like me..^^

    :p..hah, reminds me of myself when i re-started playing again about, oh say, 7+ yrs ago...All the forms, strokes, timing were off...But they'll come back eventually; at least your break wasn't as long as mine...
    Sometimes we wonder, at least myself, how much better would we be if we had continued to play??..:cool:

    most of my arm strength and coordination sorta came back by now. But endurance is another story. I can play may be like three full blown games top. After that the fuel just sorta run out. Perhaps not being a highschool teenager anymore have something to do with it :D
