    Well it's really hard to say... different clubs have different levels.

    I too will be in Taiwan early May and would love to play a game or two. I'm not (ahem...) anywhere near ranked 20th in UK, but am a reasonable club player.

    Perhaps I can PM you too?

    Thanks,

    be my friend! I'm hoping to take badminton even more seriously (I'm probably intermediate-advanced) and would love to train with you.

    I don't read Chinese either so I never really visited badmintonrepublic.com. I recently moved to Taipei from Hsinchu, Taiwan, and although I play badminton regularly at some places, I am looking to play at a slightly more competitive level, meet new people, etc.

    Therefore it makes me really happy to see all the responses in this thread! Good to know that there are some BCers here too : ).

    also yifan, PMed~! I am in the USA right now until May 17 but can't wait to get back on the courts once I return.

    On a slightly unrelated topic... I do have slightly used Yonex rackets I'm looking to sell pretty cheaply (Arc-Z 3000nt, Arc 900P 2500nt)... so let me know if interested :O

    I think Taipei's badminton hot time is either in the morning or in the evening. You can also find some groups who play in the afternoon, but there aren't too many of them...

    Hey Yifan, I will be visiting Taipei, Taiwan tomorrow 14/5 (Sorry i know it's a bit of a last minute thing) and i was hoping you can help arrange a couple sessions to play together once i'm there - it's not too troublesome yah?!

    I'm advanced-intermediate & an avid player. I will try to take some photos to post here as contribution for the rest of the guys when i'm back. And, u have a PM! :) Cheers!
