    Hi All,

    I've just relocated from Hong Kong to Singapore and am residing around the Kovan/Hougang area. I'm in my late 30s and am a serious player, around intermediate level. Can anyone recommend some places where I can have some good games?

    Yes, you can put your names there. I played there last night. They accept players, but on a first come first serve basis.

    Hello, I started the 'Badminton in North-East' thread, there are empty courts sometimes in the evenings there at Braddell Heights CC, it's quite near to Serangoon MRT...

    I believe there is no posting at all, most prob aloysius86 contacted Gilbert direct and they played on 26 Aug.

    Otherwise Gilbert won't had mentioned he played
    As we can see, "accept players but first come first serve basis"

    So, they probably only need one more player and contacted Gilbert to go and didn't have any posting for that round:D

    Actually, I was referring to the group under the sticky under North Int-Adv Group. I saw aloysius in the name list and made the assumption that it was that thread that was being referred to.

    Sorry if I caused any confusion. If you guys decide to form a group, do let me know. I'm always interested to try out and join.

    Ya, I did tryout the North Int-Adv Group (it's a totally different group; the North-East one is not planned yet) and I'd say that the players there are pretty impressive, very experienced and ultra competitive. It made me stay grounded but at the same time was an eye-opener. If there's one particular thing, it's that they give very little margin for errors.

    If the North-East one is planned, it will comprise of players more from Lower- to Mid- Intermediate, and maybe slightly more lesisurely, but not to the point that it's too relaxed. I dunno, but I have been very used to the latter...

    As for the schedule, would have the check availability online...I used to have an online a/c but I think expired from disuse...what abt Braddell, havent got any replies for if Braddell Heights CC courts are ok?
