    Hey I went last week and there were quite a few advanced players (approx 8) so I think you'll fit in well.

    Cool, I was there a bit late and met up with david and managed to have a couple of games. They are very nice people and purchase some of my sample racket and grips I took from a friend. Ask the nice Malaysian lady to show you the rackets and grips. I hope to bring more next time. Its out of stock.

    Then the lady told me that there's another session at 3.30-6pm and I was glad to have many2 games with them, again, they are majority Malaysian veterans. A very nice and friendly atmosphere and games through out. One recommend me to play with some advance players at some place sounds like ayr or fry park (do correct me) where they play on friday evening from 8pm to 12am. A bunch of good advance players there. looking forward to join them on friday evening. Thanks to Patrick and David for the hospitality. Good on ya mate!

    Hi sin2kilda,

    Another place where you want to play with advanced players is Titans Badminton Club. The organiser is Ashley and the people there are pretty much all B grade and above. I went a coupld of times and the people there are 80% advanced players. It sounds like you are pretty advanced yourself, so you will fit in there quite nicely. However, I find that the atmosphere at Titans Badminton Club is a little more serious - that is, not as easy going and people there are more serious about their badminton. They aren't bad people, but just more serious. Ashley is very nice though. They play I think on Saturdays at 8PM onwards at Citilife Vermont. This is the club's website www.titanbadmintonclub.websyte.com.au/.

    To confirm whether they will be playing this Sat, yous hould email Ashley (just go to the website and you can email him). He emails back very quickly.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks David for your great hospitality. Looks like all levels are welcome and if you need a good run, you can extend from 3.30pm for some veteran malaysian dudes playing there. Great stuff. Good courts.

    Hi, David, just one more question.

    Do we have to bring our own shuttlecocks or they are provided?

    I thought I should pay Ken a visit too

    Hi extremenanopower,

    Yeah, I was thinking...... Since you (from Singapore) turned up to play at Ken's Nunawading, so I (from Melbourne) thought I should pay Ken a visit too. :p:p:p

    Am I on aussie tour ? ... Yes, I like to visit different Groups for Badminton here in Melbourne, sometimes attending up to 7 different Groups in a week. :):):)

    And, with Clubs for Badminton, I am currently holding memberships of 5 different Clubs. ;););)

    Regarding Monash Uni... I could end up there whenever my Friday CCC Badminton Club is unavailable.

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    no, the Nunawading community is closing from 23/12/2007 to 07/1/2008 for Christmas and New Year celebration, so we will stop two weeks (29/12/2007 and 5/1/2008)
    but if you like to play badminton at Chrismas/New Year time, you can go to kilsyth "John's club 2:30-5:00pm $7.0 for social"
