    Hello everyone,

    I'm travelling from Montreal, Canada, to Hong Kong in March and would like to make new friends and play some badminton. :)

    Is there anyone and/or places available that I can drop in and play?

    Badminton is fun... but... it's what's AFTER badminton I value most!!!... the '消夜' haha...

    Msg me for more info!

    Thanks everyone!

    Dickson

    Yippo, nice!!!

    But I'm arriving in HK only around March 8 or 9... I will be in Asia for a month, travelling from one country to another.

    I will stay mainly in HK with my family. But definitely I would like to play some games.

    Do you have Facebook?

    well. I don;t know how to read much chinese either. Should really learn one of these days.

    But its quite easy to get by in hk as long as you speak ok cantonese.

    Hi all. I am looking for work in HK now and I will be here for the long term. I am looking for a place to play, within a 45 minute commute from Tsim Sha Tsui. I speak fluent Cantonese and English so I should mix well with whatever group you have. My level is about intermediate-advanced in Hong Kong. Feel free to PM me or respond in this thread. Cheers.

    I just moved to Hong Kong recently too. I would live to join your games, if it's ok.
    But I live in North Point, kind of far from where you guys are.
    Keep me updated please! Thanks! :)
