    I came across a guy visiting from Kitimat last year while dropping in at a community center in Vancouver, he told me that there's lots of things to do outdoor but not much else indoor. It's definitely hard to play regularly in a small town:(.

    oh yeah, hes right, theres a lack of interest from the town, and youth here in anything sport, big hockey town, aside from that, everyone else does outdoor things, but ya know the town jsut took down a crappy old hospital, perfect space for a NEW Rec centre, or some indoor sporting venue. (maybe just a pure badminton gym) would certainly rock. but hey we got 4 courts, some good quality players to play with so its all good !

    Hi MenosGrandeIchi,
    Welcome to Badmintoncentral forum.Where is yr town Kitimat? Is it far from Vancouver? I have heard that Vancouver is a beautiful place with coold weather. U mean there is only a few places for badminton there. In Malaysia especially Kuala lumpur, there are alots of venues for this game. Anyway, welcome to BC forum.
    Adidas:D

    hey Dave and Adidas , nice to meet ya guys, hey Adidas, i live about 18 hour drive from Vancouver, Population is under 9000 i think, i should just move to the city really or move to Asia. Just the thought of playing compeitive badminton all day... yeah...i'd be so up for that...time to save up XD, i bet your pretty good at badminton eh Adidas, u play in such a Badminton commited place, Canada loves hockey ^_^... as do i , but hockey takes all the towns resources in the small towns, so the indoor facilities in the small towns often suck. I had some badminton tonight actually, 25 ppl came with 4 courts, 16 ppl on , 9 off, not bad numbers today, had two east indians fighting over me LOL, ahhh today was good,

    So ahhh This is a question or request for all of you
    how old are you guys, how long have you played? what game do u play, singles, or doubles? Thankz ! ^_^ talk to ya soon~

    Well, I think I qualify for the Canadian Masters :D ... I've played on and off, but this is 5th year back playing continuously.

    I play most doubles, but I think my rotation is pretty bad, being self-taught.
