    Hi Guys, I play regularly at Armadale (southwest corner of Denison and McCowan). Lately, I'm having a hard time finding some good competition on Monday nights 8:00pm - 10:00pm. Mondays are great because it's never full and the court is all yours. So, for all the good players around the block, I'm calling you out!:D

    It's adults (18+), and it's $4 per drop-in. There's six courts. Lighting is great. Good hardwood floors but needs someone to sweep more regularly. Friendly environment. I went today and didn't really have to share the court for the most part of the 2 hours.

    Finally!

    I finally got to play a really good player tonight. I wish more of you guys would come Monday nights. ibm88 showed up tonight and wow he was good. We played 3 games and he won the final 2 rather easily. My hats off to him, he was a good player and I lost fair and square. He eve taught me a few things on backhands after the game. Much appreciated imb88!

    There's a few okay players. In mens doubles, depending on your level I think you'll be entertained. In singles, ibm88 who beat me last night happens to be a badminton coach downtown. It was his first time here and he's already committed for next week. You should come by, the environment at Armadale is great. Good lighting, high ceiling, decent hardwood flooring. I encourage all competing players to drop by. Armadale is also open for drop-in's on Thursday (8-10pm), and Sundays (9-11pm). However, Monday's the only day where the courts are not too busy so singles are allowed.

    They actually have drop-in's on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 12:00 noon -2:00pm. I dropped by during noon before but most of the players are older adults (they don't have to work). However, the courts are usually widely open for singles during these times. Anyone want to meet up during these lazy hours to play singles? Let me know in advance and I'll take the day off to accomidate your schedule. As for Tuesday nights, I haven't found a place to play in Markham or close by.
