    May I know who will be interested in playing badminton at Bishan Sports Hall? :)

    I can start booking a court once there are at least 4 players including me.

    Hi Watercolours,

    If you can fix a time and have the courts booked weekly, I can help to find more ppls to joint.
    But for starting, just get 4 to 6 ppls, 1 court of 2 hours.

    Mon, Wed & Thur evening, 7pm to 10pm is fine with me.

    Hi Melvyn, i need to know when most people are free before i can attempt to book a court. Actually for me, i like to play sports before dinner, so 3-6 pm appeals to me more...but if most people are free at another time slot, then i'll go with the majority.

    P.S. :

    Arcos, can you state which day of the week and what time of the day you prefer so i can make arrangements?

    And Melvyn, can you also let me know which day and what time your friends wish to play too?

    Tks! :)

    Hi Minwei, glad that you are able to join us. Yup, so far we have:

    1. Me
    2. Arcos
    3. Melvyn
    4. Minwei

    I was thinking of 2 December '04 (Thursday) for our first game together. I know its about a week+ more away but this is coz i will be having exams until 1 December.

    Hope you guys can be patient and understanding ;)

    Let me finish my exams so i can play wholeheartedly with u'all without my minds being in 2 places okie :D

    A one week wait can also be good coz in the meantime, let's see if we have more people who wish to join us....else only 4 people can be boring too.

    So tentatively, I hope to book 2 courts on 2 Dec '04 (Thursday) afternoon for around 8-10 people. 10 people will be best since it enables one of us to be resting at any one time on each court to perhaps help to keep track of the score or just to relax awhile...

    Meanwhile everyone take care and should the time/date be unsuitable for any of you, do reply to this thread and I will see what i can do.

    FYI, the rates are as follows:

    $3.50/hr for non-peak and $7.40/hr for peak

    Non-Peak Hours (preferred):
    7.00 am to 6.00 pm on weekdays, excluding public holidays

    Peak Hours (too costly i feel):
    6.00 pm to 10.00 pm on weekdays
    7.00 am to 10.00 pm on weekends and public holidays

    Hope the above info helps...

    Hi there,
    my friends and I would love to join in. However, as we are working, we will only be able to make it after 630pm. So if you all are playing in the evenings, we would be most delighted to join. We have a group of about 4 - 6 players. :)

    Well everyone...as i said, the day and time are yet to be confirmed but it should be around the first few days of December...and since it may not be easy to find a time where everyone is free, what i propose is that I'll go with the time slot where the majority would be free....hope its ok with everyone...

    Arcos, since you live in AMK, Bishan should be ok for you right? So i presume you can only make it on weekdays from 7-10pm right? What about weekends? Please confirm okie...

    Feizhu, both you and your friends are welcome too! :)

    So right now it seems evening time is best for most of us...

    Hi Melvyn, no problem at all that you are coming back on the 29th Nov '04...after all we'll most likely be starting only in the early part of December...but regarding the time where we shall most likely be playing, it is still to be confirmed...i'll see when the majority are free...hope you ok with that...

    If you are ok with it, let me know whether you prefer playing in the afternoon 4-6pm or evenings 7-10pm so i can better arrange the booking time...

    If everything goes to plan, we should be playing on 02 Dec '04 for around 2 hours...
