    Hi all,

    Sorry i'm a newbie in this forum. I have a small group of frens playing almost every Sun morning at IRAS. Just wondering if there are any other groups playing at high intermediate/advanced level in the East, especially on weekdays.

    Cos sometimes i feel the itch to hit some shuttles, if u know wat i mean :cool:

    I won't mind booking a court in the east maybe on wed evenings... would like to know how many pple will join. But if you restrict to only 'high intermediate/advanced' I think a bit hard... I dun think I qualify either... ^^

    hey Alex, no worries. I'm just asking around outta curiousity. I dun mind joining other groups as well or provide free 'coaching' lessons or tips to whoever wants them. I'm not a full-fledged coach but i guess wif my experience, i'm still able to offer a tip or two to improve your gameplay :p

    I think most importantly is to get your footwork right. I believe that's the biggest issue, also holding the racket properly. Hehe..Anyone interested in my free lessons? Maybe treat me to a drink can liao..haha.. :cool:

    I'll be glad for any pointers too =)

    Hmm ok think when I get back from overseas I'll try booking slots on wednesday evenings ba... I'll only be back on the 16th though so that means the first wed slot I can book is probably... 3rd Dec haha ^^

    So far 3 persons including me... hopefully we can get 5 or 6?

    no problems if there isn't enough ppl for the weekday sessions. I could always attend the weekend session to share some pointers with u guys. But as all of us knows, we'd wanna play games instead of being bored with footwork/strokes/etc. Haha..i was like that last time when i attended training.

    Thanks for the enthusiasm though, that's a good start ;)

    I can join too :)

    I can try to book safra tampines cos members just need to pay $4/hr, but it's often fully booked..and it only allows you to book 7 days in advance too..

    Anyone ok with safra tampines? If ok, then maybe I can try to book on 19 Nov.. but no g'tee of success :p
