    I created a quick little website to display all the places to play around Melbourne. It is nothing special but hopefully helps people to find where to play according to where they live and their skill level.

    http://badminton.gtccoz.com

    Please feel free to add Sessions you know of to the list of email me admin@gtcarclub.com and I will add it for you.

    Hi Chris,

    It is Brandon Chan here. I have played with CCC on Wednesday nights quite a few times but not lately.
    I can add it for you or you can add it by clicking Maintain Sessions. It gets saved as "PENDING" and when I get a chance I Approve them .. this is just to avoid some people wanting to post spam or who knows what.

    You can help me test it haha

    Regards

    Brandon

    Hi Brandon,

    you might want to update the details on Foxy Baddy Club as it's now CLOSED for public due to overcrowded attendants.

    Thanks.

    Replace Foxy with CCC as revision of list is corrected

    .
    Good. :):):)

    Brandon, if you can please replace Foxy with CCC as you revise your list.

    This will save me time playing with your list (just in case I might muck it for you).

    I don't know where you get this crap from but it's OPEN to the public. We have a 28 player limit and if your standard is not high enough the people who run the club will ask you not to come again.

    Look guys, I'm sorry I did not get Sam's approval for posting it. It was in my testing database and it came across when I deployed it.. it was totally my fault.
    I did not mean to start a riff guys. I just love playing badminton and wanted to provide a website so everyone can find a place to play every day of the week.
    Anyway must run, off to badminton :)

    Disregard my previous post. Sam just informed me that it is closed to the public now. He never told me.

    We need to be careful when giving info at BadmintonCentral

    .
    We need to be careful when giving info at BadmintonCentral.

    There are tens to hundreds of private Badminton groups in Melbourne (Australia's sporting capital). Their players communicate via phone, sms, email, etc...

    We can even see some groups that post some little info at BadmintonCentral, but would tell BCers to reply via phone and email, and not via BC.

    In a way, these private groups are selective about who are welcomed to play with them.

    Sam is OK. Just approach him personally, if BCers are wishing to play in his group.

    Thanks to Brandon for setting up the site. I guess it will be really helpful for the player to chose where is suitable for them to play. And it helps to find the badminton courts location too.

    No hassles. That was the idea, to assist people to locate places to play in Melbourne.
