been playing badminton for almost two month in sydney now. been to most of the social badminton clubs around sydney and found out that there one thing in common. It is not that sociable at all. Even if you have the money and skills to participate in the badminton session, not neccessarily you get the chance to play. I have got one example: One friend of mine went to UNSW badminton club one day. He is an open grade player and when he wanted to play, no one wants to play with him. Maybe because he is new and they think that he is a crap player or something else. Badminton social clubs are now more politics now. It is about who you know rather than what you have. It happened to me also. Any opinions???????
