    Hey dear friends, after attempted plenty of sessions I found out that there are quite an amount of people looking for single games.

    I am looking for people who want to play single regularly, willing to travel / live within
    PJ (North)
    Puchong(South)
    Sri Petaling (East)
    USJ (West)
    these zones, which form 10km radius area. About the time, we temporary aim to play at weekend morning (no traffic problem).

    Anyone interested?

    I am interested if there is a single session at Sri Petaling. I'm living in Cheras so that is the closest place to me. :)

    My level of play is about average. Really hope to improve more.

    Seeking courts in Sri Petaling is something that I am headache about. PJ(North) has New Vision, Challenger, Ara etc. Puchong(South) has MBA and some in Kinrara region, USJ(West) has plenty of them in different zones as well as Sunway 3K.

    So far I know there is only the Sri Petaling Community hall which is always fully booked...:eek: Does anyone knows if there is other halls in the east of this 10km radius area? :confused:

    Challenger Cheras, various DBKL-managed halls (Bandar Tun Razak, Cheras Baru, Alam Damai, Desa Tasik, KL Badminton Stadium), various Chinese school halls (Naam Kheung, Kwong Hon, Connaught).

    bro,
    I plan to have a singles session at USJ19 TwinSports, 5-6pm, this Friday 23Oct2009. This session is more for me to learn more and better my footwork .. my skill is slightly better than a beginner ..

    let me know if you are interested.

    FY. Court (rubber) is RM12 perhr (bf 6pm).

    Heyyyyy Jebat!! :D,

    Only free on weekend, "home ministers" has declared curfew on 23 Oct 2009 :D:D...

    Yo! Wilkin count me in if it is in morning weekend (Sat or Sun) prefer location around USJ, PJ or Shah Alam.

    There is one rubber court in Shah Alam Just near the federal highway near UiTM Section 7, inside Bintang Supermarket..think the rates will be around RM10-12/hours.

    I play double mostly but interested to improve on my footwork in single.

    Living in Cheras?

    Hey kawan I am pretty sure I played with you in Kwong Hon but I just do not know your identity because I do not recall a person call yeoh in the club. I do not mean to offend but is this (yaohray) your real name? :confused:

    Almost off topic..:p

    Before continue, I just want to thank you for that piece of information above.:)

    This time I want to communicate with you guys the reason why I set this thread.
    1. Single player is lesser than double; reason??:confused:--> cost (pay double), stamina (run full court too tired?) and excitement (shuttle too slow?).

    2. Long traveling time:Takes too much time to travel from your house to the court? Lets say 15mins drive from your house to court for 2-hour session, you end up spending almost 3 hours. I think this may be one of the reasons why people say NO when you invite them.

    I looked at the google map and I actually found that
    PJ - Puchong --> LDP
    S Petaling - USJ --> KESAS
    PJ - Sri Petaling --> Federal Highway + other highway
    The conclusion is that there are a few highways go through this region + weekend morning (almost everyone is sleeping), just 10+ mins drive from north to south; east to west (I tested). :rolleyes:

    I value my time and I do not like to jam all the way to the court (do you guys sometime have the same thought?:rolleyes:). That is one of the reasons why I do not attempt night sessions very often.:p

    Yeoh, please do not take this personal as many people considered Cheras as traffic problem region.

    Anyway, I found that ARA COURT is having promotion at the entire October just for BC member.
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=76077
    Are you guys interested to try it coming Sunday 25 Oct?:confused: If there are 3 or more yes(es) that will be considered a yes-go. (north PJ....seems quite far but RM10/hour + rubber court sounds attractive) O_O .

    Update Detail Info Later

    Hey guys, I found that many people from Shah Alam/USJ/Puchong replied to this thread. So, I decided to choose TwinSports which is somewhere between Puchong and USJ. :rolleyes:

    About the time, I can only pick Sunday morning where most people do not have appointment or something important to do. :eek: Please let me know if there is any Christian who attempt church in the morning, so I can do something for the next weekend. ;)

    Not necessary minimum of 3 players to form a session, I can play 1 or 2 hours straight with you if you want to have a one-on-one session. :D

    Finally, I will update the details such as exact map location (do not want you guys to get lost :p ), cost etc at tomorrow. Almost forgot to tell you, this is a rubber court with good lighting (side;not top).

    Please feel free to pm or sms me via 012-3163010 :)

    **Court fee will be shared and no earning**
    **Shuttles sponsored**
    **Time will depend on amount of player and stamina**

    I just confirmed the location on map and others. There will only be some kids (coached) or family during Sunday morning. So we assume there will be plenty of courts left where we can increase time or court whenever we want. Of course min 1 hour playing :D

    To those who are just started playing single, beginner, and people who do not sure how strong you are: just join and see how good you are, you might amaze on your performance :eek::eek::eek: and love single so much :D.
