    Hey everyone,

    Firstly a simple introduction,

    I'm Mike, 22 from cwmbran, South wales UK. Looking to start taking badminton very serioulsy just hope i havent left it too late.

    Play for a club in lantarnam on a sunday and monday, a cwmbran club on a tuesday and a cardiff club on a wednesday. Im in the B side at lantarnam and find that i dont get enough games in there and no actual practice at all. Other 2 clubs are more a social level where i just try to push myself as much as i can.

    Im looking for a training partner who would mind helping out someone who trying to become the best he can be (god that sounded cheesy [​IMG] )

    I dont mind a bit of travel cwmbran, newport or cardiff somewhere around there.

    Would also like a coach. I dont want to keep on playing thinking what im doing is right, if its not.

    Looking to play tournaments everything i can get into the better.

    Any suggestions guys and gals would be gratefully recieved.

    I would say im a 'ok player. i havent really played a tournament to judge myself. playing in the clubs i dont like to judge myself as playing with a different partner every week seems impossible to get a routine going with the person in the 5minute warm up.

    So anything you might find helpful please contact me asap

    Many thanks all

    Hiya Mike~! I'm currently at Cardiff University. I'd be glad to be a training partner if you can attend badminton socials at my uni on Wednesday 1pm - 5pm and Sunday 2pm - 6pm. Drop me a note if you do ever wanna come by. Hope to meet up sometime soon, this Sunday perhaps?

    Hi Mike,

    I am Gary 35 , play once or twice a week to a decent standard ( I think :confused:), regular partner lost to injury looking for someone to stretch me.

    I normally play in Cardiff Sophia Gardens, pretty flexible on days and time.

    Drop me a line if interested.

    Cheers

    Gary
