    Hello,

    A friend and I we're looking to join any good players for weekend playing in Cheras Selatan new badminton hall (behind Furniture mall after EconSave).

    We wish to play Sat afternoon btwn 3-5pm; and Sun 2-4pm or so.

    We've been playing 2x weekly for many years but mainly during weekday evenings. Now would like to play in weekends too.

    Anyone out there? We live in Cheras Perdana.

    Cheers!

    "Good players":confused: How good? Club/state/national level? I can whack and smack with both forehand and backhand, but considered myself an average player. If you guys don't mind I may join and maybe learn a thing or two.

    I know! Getting 'kakis' isn't much a difficulty but, most generally consider themselves average social players. I do have buddies who play on weekends but when you use the term 'good' or even 'amateurishly good'; there is a problem. Not until I know how good you guys really are, which group of players should I invite you guys to join?

    Most if not all social badminton group I've played with consist of different level of skill players. We tend to get along without fuss. IMO; finding good people who can play consistent and regularly is already difficult let alone getting 'birds of the same feather' type. Get what I mean?

    So, why not you arrange a session where I can bring along a buddy or two who can hit the bird decently to enjoy. If all goes well and we fit into your category of so called 'good players', we can even form a new group. Wouldn't that be nice?

    Hey brother, come morow Thursday 7-9pm Cheras Selatan new court; I've booked a court there and we will have fun! We can then discuss whether we can make it long term for the weekend play.

    Budget expected to be about RM80-RM90 (incl court and shuttles), we'll see how many of us make it then divide evenly. I have about 3pax here now. If you have 3pax too on your side that'll be great!

    My number 017 866 3393.

    With such a prompt response you sure are a badminton fanatic. I'll definitely come. However, the time is too early, pending confirmation from others at least one of my buddies will be coming along for the fun.

    Location map please.

    joel,

    Well, yesterday's session had been enjoyable and worthed every sweat. Honestly, I don't consider you guys "High hands", but definitely a bunch of ardent badminton lovers with a decent know how of the game; technically and tactically that is. If you are really keen in forming a new group I'm in, and shall try to get some suitable players (whose time and commitments allow them) to join.

    In the meantime, to all badminton gangs out there who are short of players, this fellow and his friends are definitely fun and worthy sparring partners to have. I like their attitude; serious enough with a fun filled and friendly aura. By all means give them a try if you are interested.

    Thanks for the session, it has been a pleasure.:)

    Haha yeah we're amateur players who're looking to enjoy the badminton fun; I'll try organize one for the Saturday session.

    @sibugichai - we played in Cheras Selatan new hall yesterday night.

    Haha, marketing campaign? I was and am never good at that and I don't suppose you mean to find players to earn anything. All the same to all of us who are "amateur" (I prefer the word social) players enjoying the game just like you.

    Nevertheless, proof through word of mouth will always generate better response, that was what I'm doing.
