    Hi,
    I'd like to start playing social badminton in Melbourne again after twenty years away from the game. Does anyone have any recommendations on a friendly group that I can play with - evenings would be best but weekends are also OK.

    I live near the Ashburton rec centre which has four courts but unfortunately does not appear to have a regular group that plays there. The MSAC seems to have a lot going on but I'm not so keen on going all that way to play, so somewhere closer would be better.

    Any advice much appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Paul

    Hi,
    Thanks for the info. Can I assume that you don't have to be staff or a student to attend? Does it have a mixture of skill levels - I used to be quite good, but I'm clearly rusty (and older) these days!

    Cheers,
    Paul

    You dont have to be a staff or student to play. Look these people and they can help you. John , Gary or Loke Poh.

    There are a mixture of skill levels.

    Cheers
