    Hey everyone!

    I'm a 15-year old boy from Finland.
    I recently moved from Tampere, Finland to Sharjah, U.A.E when my dad got a vs prof position for 1 year.

    Back in Finland i started playing badminton already at the age of 6-7, but didin't join a club (and begin regular training) until the age of 13.
    Im an enthusiastic player, and i'm always looking for ways/places to play.
    I joined my school badminton team, and i'm hoping to get accepted into the badminton team of the American University of Sharjah (last tryout will begin in one hour : )

    So im looking for badminton players here in Sharjah, possibly to contact and arrange training together and matches.
    I also wanted to ask about where is it possible (apart from my school and the university court) to play badminton. Or are there clubs here in the Emirates that i could join. I really miss regular playing, and hope to get back on track. Also id be thankful for a list of recommended places to play badminton in. I'm looking for a good, but a reasonably priced place.

    Contact me by e-mail (goes also for MSN Messenger) at: sami_gabbouj@yahoo.com,
    or by phone at: +971 50 9370434 (050 9370434 if inside U.A.E)

    Thanks, and hope to hear from you.

    - S.G

    Thanks, but it didn't turn out very well :p
    I asked the guy about when the team will be chosen, and he replies "your not a student, so you cant be in the team". I'm like "you couldn't tell me this before??" ... Im better than most of the guys there, but still he wouldnt even mind telling me when i signed up for the tryouts that i couldnt get in the team....Anyways, i still got school badminton tournament beginning next sunday, and i hope to do well there.
