    I'm "Type 100" and I hail from Paranaque City. I'm basically an intermediate player, playing on and off for four years already.

    I've been working for 14 months on my first job, and luckily it's got badminton activities and tourneys I can join.

    Hi, I'm venkatesh gonzalez.

    I've been into badminton since high school (on and off). However, considering the amount of experience, I can't say that I have already made a big leap towards becoming a level A player, as I can only say that I'm in level B or C.

    Badminton is not a career for me, but it's one of the things that I enjoy playing.

    I play 3 to 2 times a week.

    My home court is in Club Flick, Paranaque.

    I have already played at Playground and Star Smash in Alabang (no recommendations for these courts ... bad queueing if you're an outsider), Winner Badminton Club in Laguna (reccomended, nice place), Sta. Rosa Badminton Club in Laguna (highly reccomended, friendly people), et al.

    I'd like to know more people from this forum.

    Im abner dano. 3rd year/BS Computer Science regular student of Roosevelt College Marikina. 19 y/o. my name sucks. it means, an abnormal(abner) damaged(dano) man(patris,my midle name). [​IMG]
    i met badminton in our second year, first semester. i have gone crazy about it that my girlfriend became jealous.haha=D
    di ko alam level ng laro ko, pero siguro yung pagka baliw ko dito level SSS. haha(over ata yun) i became a member of this community last night, and i mean to stay for a lifetime.
    i would love to find a group or club that can teach me more about improving my game. i've never been to any tourney but im willing to train harder than what hard gets so that i may be able to build confidence through experience and fortunately, be on the world.
    badminton is such a magnificient sport. unlike billiard or boxing or other sport, we dont have someone to represent us to the world (xempre ung mga asuncion) but still, the badminton environment in our country revolve so fast. gets? it means, badminton is here to stay.
    and yeah, i did not only love badminton because of the common reasons like physical fitness or time killer.

    i love badminton because i love badminton!

    Hello,

    It's been a long time since I wrote my introduction. We have in Tanay the previous Daranak Bowling Lanes converted to Badminton Court. But the most recent one is in Morong very close to the new memorial park going to Antipolo is a better palce to play. Queing every Thursday night 6pm to 10 pm. The badminton club plays there regularly every Tuesday, Wednesday evening and Saturday and Sunday morning.


    Cheers

    Raul

    welcome to the world of badminton addicts!!!! :)

    hello abner and welcome to bc, where all badminton enthusiasts around the planet meet.... before anything, you're name does not suck, i think its a nice name... so cheer up and be happy... and just enjoy life while playing badminton...

    i'd like to invite you to join our club TriStar Badminton Club but your location is quite far from our place, currently, we play at FTI Complex in Taguig and Makati City, if you have every Wed and Fri, you could join our group....

    Broken Ribs... because I literally dislocated two of my floating ribs (left) while playing in a tournament without any form of stretching or limbering (after not having played for almost a year).

    I'm 46 years old and a former volleyball varsity player (I won't say which school, but I played in the UAAP). That means my smashes are really really hard (I'm six feet tall), but that's about it. My footwork is non-existent. I just wait for the shuttle to float up and boom! My drop shots suck. Plus I tend to swing the racket tennis-style, because that's my favorite spectator sport.

    I've been wanting to go serious with this sport because it makes me sweat a lot and I get tired even while warming up and doing clears (I smoke a lot). But it's hard to find play mates in or around Paranaque (where I live).

    Happy New Year to you too. I also live in Manila. If ever you come visit your friend, don't hesitate asking us to play. There are a couple of cool courts here.
