    Hey!! There are a lot of us Bay Area folk here including the owner of Badminton Central. I usually play Friday, Saturday, and Sunday now because of school, but I'll be adding another day to the mix once everything settles down again. I'm usually at Bintang, here's the website www.bintangbadminton.com the address is there.

    hey greco :)
    you'll love badminton all the more now you've discovered BC.

    i'm sorry for bothering anyone with my daftness, but just a question: who's the owner of BC??:confused:

    Speaking about the owner of BC, you'll catch him playing at Bintang sometimes. Just post a bit in the Places to Play area and say where you'll be playing. I'm sure a few BC players will go to join.

    aaahh! oh, you'll get along just fine. consider the number of san jose badminton lovers in THIS forum, it's not hard to think how many others who also dig the sport, but just haven't discovered BC. ;)

    .........What high school do you go to? That really sucks that you don't have a team to play on. Maybe you should go to your sports administration and request them to add it next year..............

    I totally requested it but they said that they can't support another team without the proper equipment or space so thats out of the question.

    the only time i can play is at school but not on a school sponsored team. so that's why i want to find a new place to play with other good players.
