    Hey guys, just wanted to know if there are any other places to play in the lower mainland. Personally i play @ Guildford Rec Center in Surrey, Thursday nights 6 30-845 and Sunday's 4- 745pm. They also have a saturday court @ 6 15- 745.

    Cost is bout $4.50 drop in i believe but u'd generally have to book well in advance. they have 8 courts on thursdays and about 4-8 on sundays.

    Any other information about other places would be very appreciated as playing 2 days a week is well, kinda weak to me. Not enough!

    Cheers!

    Britannia on Fridays are only from 7:00pm to 10:00pm, and the cost is $3.50, I think. Also, if you want to play at SFU, I think you'll need a SFU athletics shoe tag.

    And then there's ClearOne. Drop-ins from 7:30 to 10pm in the evening (usually 3 courts), and from 8 to 11pm on Fri and Sat (4 courts). It's $6 a pop at C1.

    M 9-12:30
    W 9am-12pm, 9-10pm
    Sun 9-11am, 8-10pm

    $4.25

    When ever i head back home in between semesters I usually go to Cambie Community Centre in Richmond to play. It's from 11:30am to 2:30pm on weekdays.

    Actually i'm looking forward to checking out ClearOne because i've heard/read a lot of good things about it from other posters in the forums. FYI: Coming to Vancouver for the Xmas holidays on Dec 20th. till some time after New Years. PM me if you're looking for a player or just interested in having some fresh "blood" over. I'm an intermediate/club player and social.

    Ciao.

    Hey guys,

    I doubt that I could make any BF gathering, let alone drop-in for games, until at least 2nd week of January. Plan is to leave around Boxing Day so I will miss out on the fun for sure:(. However, I am really looking forward to matching friendly BF user names with friendlier faces:).
