    Joe,

    Overall, just make yourself comfortably to any courts you like to play,k? I just treating this game merely for exercises purposes, but sometime I do enjoy the "victory", it just that I don't treat failure so seriously...

    amelia, i understand from your perspective, which is why i suggested the 2 different systems.

    One for casual play, one for competitive play. It's two different mindsets.

    Some guys like me are playing very often for the objective of improving our games.
    Yes we may be taking it a bit serious, but if we are serious about improving, then we need serious play.
    For us, the objective is not met when the gap between the players become too lopsided. Nobody really learns anything in that case.
    The better players become lazy, the beginner players don't really learn if the gap is too far. So no point.

    On the other end of the spectrum, you have guys that just want sweat and fun. It is very understandable.
    It's not that you guys don't want to win, but winning and losing is secondary.
    Right?

    What i have suggested is just to accommodate these two types of play. One casual, one competitive.

    For the competitive one, the governance system is just to help provide a guideline so that players will be playing against players slightly above or below them. This is to bridge the gap. Also, it will make sure that these players have some target to achieve. Some objective.

    I think it will be fun for some beginners to come in. Maybe start at beginner court. But after a few months or weeks, then they will start to move up the ranks to more intermediate levels. They will see their progress.

    Actually we've been trying 4 courts last week, what happen those "beginner" awlays occupied the courts which the intermediate / advance players supposed to play at....Therefore, our "regular member" not really enjoy the entire game as they unable to partner the player they wanted to...unless, you guys have to mentioned to those beginner which court they supposed to play at? As such, do you think we will offend their feeling?

    Which is why I am suggestion to adopt this system for the 3 other courts.
    With this system, everyone also have to play one game and then wait. Before they move up one court or move down one court.
    Therefore, no matter is beginner or intermediate, all players will need to wait. if they really cannot wait, then meanwhile, they can see if the casual court is open and they can join in.

    And about telling players where they are suppose to play, with this system, they will naturally 'move' to the court that is more appropriate for them. They will see for themselves where they are....then they will have to strive harder to work up the ranks.

    Ok, I've thought hard about it and the only way to compromise both parties is this; We'll maintain the 4 courts but we set some rules.

    Here's the new rules for now at least:
    1. Court 7 is pro regular members. (which means priority goes to regulars)
    2. Court 1,3 and 5 are for ad-hocs and regulars alike.
    3. Players please practice fairness to allow others to play as well. After all, it's a social affair so let's be nice.
    4. If there's a certain person you'd like to play with, go ahead and make arrangements for a good game. (Count me in as well ya? )

    Hi everyone,

    It's getting a bit complicated......just bring your racquets and enjoy the game. Less talk, less complication.

    Our aim is to play the game we love and enjoy the matches in the process.

    We see how it goes, and let the Thursday group try out the system first........if successful, can consider.

    We are all adults here and will face new situation(s) with an open mind.

    Happy Badminton-ing!!!!!!

    Cheers all,
    Richard Yong
