    I am intermediate player, prefer singles and feather shuttles (Aerosena 30). I am looking to meet up other players who are at a similar level and would like to play singles.

    I prefer to play during lunch (11-2) or at 5pm at Milpitas Bintang (but am open to another venue in the vicinity). I work in Sunnyvale.

    Thanks,
    Sachin

    We play at Bintang Milpitas on Saturday mornings and we mostly play doubles. I don't mind playing singles and I'm sure some others don't mind either. And there are plenty of courts.
    Most of us use feather of various qualities. I use Victor Gold, some use AS10, and some use Aeroplane Black.
    There are couple people who are quite good at net shots; some do pretty deceptive drops, and others are about average. I haven't seen anyone doing cross court backhand clear, though. I don't know if this matches your level of intermediate.

    We have another group that plays Monday and Wednesday nights in San Carlos (Affinity), not in the South Bay though. I know this is far but typically Bintang Milpitas is super crowded on weeknights.

    I'm not sure why my previous post requires moderation and still hasn't been approved. Anyway I wanted to say we have another group that plays in San Carlos (Affinity) on Monday and Wednesday nights but yes that's quite far.
