Seems not many ppl from New York, US (even east coast US) are in this Forum. I would like to set a local club somewhere near my neighborhood, and I want to do this survey for so long, your participation is very welcome: If you live in 50 miles within New York City, US (use zip code 11365 as center, since I live close there ^___^ ), please answer the following questions: 1. Where do u live? - Please use zip code, easy to check online 2. Where do u play - Please provide local club/college/high school name (u can put more than 1 answer) 3. What kinda racket u use? - brand, model 4. Where did u get ur racket - shop on line (website, plz)? local store? shop in another nation? 5. How many hrs u usually play for a week? 6. If I set a club about within 10 miles (use zip code 11365 as center), are u willing to participate? Sorry, under progress, contacting different local school gym for now. So, no detail address is available yet. 7. How much u can afford for member fee? - pay by each visit? pay by a yearly member fee? Even though, I don't expect too many ppl to answer the questions, but let me get a try, see how "poplular" badminton is in NY. Thanks, everyone.
