    Hi,

    Who would like to join a new regular club focusing on singles play in the PJ or KL area?

    The idea is for a mixture between social play for those that enjoy competitive singles matches and also a focus on improvement in matchplay singles games.

    The club will feature:

    • Regular sessions with coaches to get some game improvement tips
    • Optional handicap system to ensure equal games between players of diffferent ages/abilities
    • Ranking scoring system to measure progress over time
    • Air conditioned courts (TBC)

    Any interest? ! Then please let me know.

    :)

    Thanks,

    Donald

    Hi, thats great to hear from you.

    It is not running yet, but please send me any your contact details and then when we have a sufficient group we can get it going. The idea would be to have some discussion about the format, costs etc before launching, so it is a good time to get involved.

    Hi,

    I was also thinking of starting a singles group, playing either saturday or sunday. Based on my calculation, a 2 hour court and a tube of shuttle will cost 100. The main concern is players. A group of 5 would be nice (around 20/player).

    Sms or whatsapp me @0123311391.

    Kok, I suggest to try and see. I don't know who will come, but we are all beginners compared to Chonge-Wei and Lin Dan (hoping they are reading this...) ;-P

    I'll put you on the list.

    OK Shahul. Looks like enough people interested to make a start for the first session soon. I think we want to get about 6 or 8 if possible.

    Dear All,

    Thanks all for those that are interested so far to get this new badminton singles activity launched. I look forward to meeting everyone, swapping some good shots and enjoying some tough games.

    It looks as if all four premier courts are going to be available on Sunday 27th April at Sports Arena Sentosa from between 630-9pm.

    For these sessions there would be a discounted rate available for the courts, which means we could accomodate up to 12 or 14 singles players at one time. Match shuttles will also be provided, so depending on number of players, I think we could keep costs limited to less than 20rm per person.

    Is this a convenient time/location for everyone? If it is not viable not then please suggest some alternative times and venues and I will try to arrange. We can play be in the weekdays evening also, but the availability of courts will be more limited.

    Personally, I am keen to play in a venue with climate control because the correct temperature and humidity balance will imrpove performance. For those interested in this, it would be good discuss about it at the first session, but it is not a must-have.

    Otherwise the philosophy of the session remains the same:

    1) To get regular competitive singles matches, with a transparent ranking system so players can measure progress over time
    2) To get a large pool of different players rotating and playing each other, with the option of a handicap system so that all players are challenged to win (I'll explain more about the idea for that at the first session).
    3) To bring in coaches or expert players from time to time give game improvement tips/challenge matches

    PLease let me know if the time and venue above is OK, and then we go ahead to confirm the first session.

    thanks!

    Donald

    OK, sounds good for the first sessions and with the number of people that are interested so far I think we can guarantee less than 20rm. If the interest stays to make a regular club then we can look at it again and the format also....
