    Where in Nunawading? Are you trying to organise a social night every Tuesday or just once off?

    I'm getting interests in the next few days. If there's enough interest, I'll post out the details.. so stay tuned!:)

    I'm not running this for profit so it's all cost price shared among everyone. It's going to be cheaper than what's out there now. $7 is just the average price. If we get enough people, (say 9 more) then will probably go down to $6 or $5 each.

    Add 2 more people. Me and my wife are interested in coming as we live very close to Nunawading and Tuesday nights are good for us.

    Yep. Thanks. Most likely not this Tuesday, should be the Tuesday after. I'll post up a reply once confirmed.

    Cheers

    How about increasing it by another hour? to 11pm? Or even 10.30pm could be good.

    2 hours just passed very fast, esp if there're lots of players

    that can be considered. I won't be getting too many people in. There are basically 3 courts so I'll be limiting the number of people to 18. Otherwise, it'll just ruin it for everyone.

    We've got roughly about 10 people so far, so there's plenty of room left. As of right now, you can play continuous for the 2 hours :cool:

    So what about shuttles? Is it included in the price? What kind of shuttles are we using?

    shuttles are included in the cost. However, I've only estimated for about 2-3 tubes per night at the moment. So any additional will affect the price..
    But with that said, the shuttles are the Epsilon greens. I would like to upgrade to the epsilon yellows, but will get the general consensus if everyone would like to pay the extra to get better shuttles.. But that's down the track anyway.

    The older version of APACS 909 (i think) seems to be better, but not the newer ones.

    It could barely last 1 game with below average attacking game play.

    Oh well, there're all around the AUD 15-22 mark anyway. Just try most of the brands & choose the better ones.

    :D
