*Randomly introduces self after 20-odd posts*; Well, thought I better introduce myself, good manners n'all that. I'm very almost 17 (26th dec) but at the moment, a 16 year old male player who resides in the UK. I started badminton at mid/late 14, and I play as often as possible. I've just started going to a club, where I ranked 2nd in singles undefeated in the first week, and in the second week took first rank. This is a junior club of course, but I quit this club in search of a higher standard junior club, or, to joing an adults club where I'll get beaten 15-0 undoubtedly , but want to learn from such experiences. I currently play with a Karakal SL-80 with BG68-Ti @ 23lbs, this racquet suits me greatly but I've yet to get completely comfortable with it when compared with my Slazenger Pro Carbon Ti I used for a year and a half I have other interests but, badminton is the only sport I play, and I love it very much. I also currently attend college studying Chemistry, Physics, Maths, & History. I hope to play in the University team of whichever University I end up attending. Just wanted to let you know a bit about myself. Hello to everyone & happy christmas.
