    I'm starting Computer Engineering at Waterloo in about a week.

    Aside from doing a lot of math/physics/chem/computer science, I also plan to play a ton of badminton.

    I'm wondering if anyone here is from the Kitchener/Waterloo (Ontario) area, and if you are, could you share your badminton-ing experiences with me? Especially if you're involved with the U of W?

    I know a guy who made the Waterloo team last season. His name is Patrick Farell. Tell him Phil says hi when you meet him.

    I know, thanks. I've browsed through those pages. I'm sure I'll be familiar enough with the inner workings of the club in a week.

    I was more interested in personal experiences anyone might have had.

    I will be sure to do that, although I wouldn't even considering trying out for the team with the first year engineering workload. :)

    A3,

    good luck in the UofW. Engineering is a time consuming major to be in. but be sure to balance out your life and stay fit and healthy.

    So there actually UW students here...hehe

    well I'm in the UW badminton club, but it's not that good for competitive games, it's more of a social club. But still they rank players as advanced intermediate and beginner. Make sure that you aren't the "weakest link" or you'll get voted off by other players and be moved down a level. I just personally had that experience when I played horribly using another racquet after my racquet's string broke. Don't bother to complain to the co-director, he doesn't give a damn...I e-mailed him and got flamed. He's dangerously arrogant and ignorant.
