    Hi Iwan, I've hear so much about how good a player you are, you're definately welcomed! However we only have 1 intermedate female player for the friday group. Most of the girls are just begainners.

    WhyrlWynd, you are playing on our sunday group already, you sure you wanna go for the friday group as well? gee u are so full of energy. :D

    For those interested, we can meet at Braddell MRT control station at 6.15pm this friday.

    ... I'm not a girl :eek: what she is saying is that i probably cant get a good game of mixed doubles.

    Umm Netasia, just wondering, would it be better if I join the Sunday group instead? Just wondering. Oh I'm not very good at doubles, I'm just strong at covering the entire court since I'm a singles player :D trying to change that a bit by playing mixed. I heard Lin Dan was a mixed player, look at how that made him into a great singles player.

    I don't meant Iwan is a girl, just that he wanted to play mixed double.
    You are welcome to join our Sunday group too, but most of the sunday group players are at learning stage.

    I'll play anywhere and anytime (as long as I'm not at work!).
    Just give me a hoot at 97434039 if you need an extra player.
    I'll be there in half an hour! :D

    You don't want a senior citizen to spoil your game, do you? With mongoose around, I'm sure the younger ladies can get a few tips here and there from him.

    But now at least I know where to go to meet more BFers on Friday evenings. Thanks for the invitation, Whirlwind ...er... WhyrlWynd. :p
