    Hi all,

    My name's Ryan, from SG.

    I hope to catch some badminton action next week while in BKK.
    I'm staying at Grand Millenium hotel from 2nd to 5th Nov, leaving on the 6th.
    I'm about Intermediate level.
    If any group is welcome to accept a foreign visitor, would appreciate if you could let me know when and where?

    Really hoping to hear from someone...
    :):):)

    Ryan, you could contact Anek from Saturn team. The players are very friendly. Since you're there for the week, you can join the players on Wednesday and they start playing from 8pm until past midnight.

    The badminton courts are near Central Pin-Klao. If you take a cab from Grand Millennium hotel to the badminton courts, the cab fare is approx S$10.

    ps Grand Millennium hotel looks impressive!

    What a waste I am not in BKK the same time as you ! I normally stay at either Sheraton or Westin which is near your hotel and then we can go there together !

    I am planning a trip there the week of 23rd November, if you are there again, we can meet up for sure.

    Yes great idea!

    Would have been nice to have someone from home take me to the group.
    I'll keep u posted of my next trip. :)

    btw, I didn get a response from Anek...I pm him yesterday... or maybe i got his ID wrong....? Anek999 right?
    Can I just drop in at the badminton hall unannounced? will they welcome drop-in visitors?;)

    Anek, are u there??????

    Hi Macky,

    Tks! As to level of play, I am around Intermediate.
    I have a feeling you have a lot of advanced players there...
    Good chance for me to do some training/learning. ;)

    But the main thing is to get a good workout and have fun!!
