    lol,

    yeh with taneepak.

    hey man have faith u play in satellites and orbitals. you shud be able to hold your own against most players. iv played against england players and been able to at least hold a rally. so it will be at the very least a good experience!

    Just to remind you that I am long past my badminton days: my last badminton title was way back in 1957. We play doubles only here, and even that I feel my side of the court is too big for me at my age.
    BTW, I don't play competitive badminton anymore and have stopped playing it 5 decades ago.
    But, don't worry, I will see if I can test you young thoroughbreds out.
