    Trying to get back into badminton myself... haven't played in a bit though since I was concentrating on my last year. Send me a PM if you want to do dropin somewhere. Still job hunting so I'm relatively free.

    Why not try Yumo Badminton Centre down at Richmond? Usually there are a lot of players in the morning drop-in. Otherwise, try Clear One in the morning on No.3 Rd.

    i go to clearone at least 3 times a week, and usually im glad to play with new people, given they are somewhere around my skill level (low intermediate +) I would only consider myself intermediate at best, I dont have back to back clears... its killing my games.

    usually monday wednesday friday afternoons

    I might start getting back in the game and play w a friend this week to see how my condition is now. Dunno how to classify levels... I just picked up forehand clearing and was starting on backhand clears when I stopped... Main issue for me is probably consecutive smashing... the more tense/aggressive I get, the worse my smashing becomes.

    That's a little bit late, I do play badminton at richpro on Sunday Noons. I would want to be able to wake up for it. Any time between 1pm start - 11pm finish on Saturday is ok.

    Where is that? Haha...

    I'm usually at Yumo on Wednesday in the morning from 9-12pm. Otherwise, I go there randomly. I seldom visit ClearOne now because my friends are all playing at Yumo.

    I just went to Yumo today from 12-3pm today.

    Wow I tried to goto a community center and yet again disappointed. It's always full and won't let you in. I called 45 mins early to ask if there are any spots left and said I'll go buy them in abit, when I showed up they told me it's sold out, wtf. And there are many other times similar things happen, it's horrible. I HATE going to any CC for badminton!

    Anyone going to richmond for badminton today? Thursday? yumo richpro clearone two?

    I'll be visiting Yumo tomorrow morning from 9-12pm. You can come by, and you will notice the big n' tall guy in black shirt, which would be me.

    And yea, I don't recommend any CC for badminton because I had bad experience with it when I was in hi-school.
