Playing Condition At La Salle Middle School Hong Kong

    The place doesn't have air conditioning but I gave it a try this Monday. Did I mention "pouring"?!? I reckon the place was + 30 C with + 80% humudity. It became very difficult to concentrate when every part of my body was soaking wet and pouring. I initially thought I had high fever but it was actually the heat. If you are a true badminton fanatic, please bring 4 litres of water and 2 pieces of bath towels.

    Pete,

    yes. i went back to HK last year, and that was the first time in well, 10+ yrs have i played in HK without A/C. i have the exact same feeling as you.

    i remember back when i was young and energetic, we used to play on Sundays in a college gym, from 10am till 5+pm, we brought extra t-shirts, and then take 4 showers throughout the day!

    i hope you had fun though, enjoy!

    Kwun, I grew up in much colder climate than Hong Kong. So, I am very sensitive to heat and humudity. I am not sure if I want to play at La Salle again. It is just so meltingly hot :-(. :-D :-D :-D

    You played 7 hours!!! You are almost pros. The longest for me was five and a half hours with short tea breaks (5 minutes or less). check out www.vanlawn.com The place is very nice but expensive. Lucky my member friends bring me in as guest.

    I will be here for a long time to come. But be warned though, my skill level may not be what you expected . . . ask Cheung and Ricky ;-). But you and Cheung will make excellent training opponents for me and Ricky, assuming you guys don't get bored 5 minutes into game. The harder you guys smash the happier I am - the faster the marrier.
