    Hi everyone
    I am not new to forums but definitely newbie to this forum. I accidentally came across this forum and I’m so glade that I did. I immediately decided to register as I felt this would be my second home .

    I am from Hampshire/England but currently working in Saudi/Riyadh. I have joined a local club here, fortunately, and we play regularly with great bunch of guys. Looking forward to share my experience with you guys. If anyone out here is from Riyadh then most welcome to exchange notes…
    Cheers Guys

    Welcome

    Hello Mandm,

    Welcome to the Badminton Central Family. Good things some times come from accidents. This is a great forum for advice and information about the sport we all love "badminton".:D Hope to hear about your experiences soon in some of the posts.

    Cheers,

    Don

    Welcome to BadmintonForum, mandm :D There's another thread here about badminton in the middle east, Dubai, if I'm not mistaken.

    How often do you guys play?

    thanks Don and Dave for your welcome post, much appreciated.
    Yep i do recall seeing a post about Dubai but it's no use to us living in Riyadh, having said that we might play against each other, time permitting.

    We actually play twice a week, our weekend is Thursday and Friday so we get to play on Thursday afternoon from 2-5 pm and Sunday (working day) from 7-9 pm. :)
