    Hi,

    23 year old, looking for groups or an individual to play badminton with. Being on and off for the last 5 years due to university which can say I rarely touched badminton through these years, but I am graduating soon so planning to get back into badminton again. Level: advanced, so techniques to contact the shuttles won't be an issue for me just a lil stamina problem, since I am pretty out of shape. Would like to play as much as possible, but prefer if the place is near transit.

    Looking forward to hear from some of you.

    TK

    Hi TK,

    You are welcomed to join me and my friend for a game of singles on Wednesday night at ClearOne Browngate @ 8-9pm if you are in the area. But it might be a pain in the ass to take transit all the way there just for 1hr though. My friend and I are not advanced...probably low intermediate in terms of skill level.

    CD.

    Hi CD,

    Thanks for the invite, but I would really prefer if it's 2 hours or longer. One hour is really short, especially when I have to travel quite a bit. If you ever book the courts for a longer period of time just gimme a shout, and I might be able to go :)

    Still craving to play lol, haven't played for a quite a while...

    What weeknight do you normally play at C1 Poco? Is it packed? How much is drop-in? I might be able to join you (for about an hour) in late June - early July cuz my friend is gone on vacation for 3 weeks.

    Hi there, I have been going either Thursday (7pm - 10pm) or Friday (7pm - 11pm) night for drop in. Hard to say how busy, most of the time very reasonable. Only one Friday 2 weeks ago was busy...other times lots of play time.
    Regards,

    Hello,

    A friend and I play at Clear 1 in Richmond usually from 1-5pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. It's quite a long skytrain ride for us as well :p. We are probably somewhere between intermediate-advance. If you'd like to join us, shoot me an email - xnicorobin@gmail.com

    Cheers
