    Hi everyone.
    Just thought of starting this thread to give an idea to everybody where and when Singapore members of BC play each week.
    Then perhaps, if we want, we can invite each other to join our sessions and even organise friendlies.

    mongoose
    Mondays - SAFRA Toa Payoh
    Wednesdays _ Jurong East Sports Hall
    Saturdays - either IMH or Jurong East Sports Hall
    Sundays - IMH

    I stopped playing at Keppel Club many many months ago.
    The court flooring are too darn hard and the place super hot!
    Very bad for people with bad knees and weak lungs like me.

    Sigh!
    Its pretty sad that after more than 200 hits, we only have 3 people excluding myself who are willing to let others know where and when we usually play.
    Looks like Singaporeans are really shy when it comes to this kind of things. :eek:

    No worry my friend. It will grow. The problem is that some managers are not into the net. Perhaps some of the readers can help to ask them and chip in.

    Mongoose,

    I was actually typing a reply the next day I read your thread but then deleted it. My concern was I was not the organiser of the 2 regular sessions I was attending - and I thought it may not be appropriate for me to list them and then getting request to join that I am not in position to reply.

    Perhaps I am worrying too much!:p

    Venues of play

    Hi Linus,
    U may not be the person who organise the sessions but personally I think it is ok to highlight yr venues of play. Even if anyone wanted to join, he or she has to ask permission b4 going there. U have the right to decline any suggestion.;) Who know, we have groups who may wish to have friendly matches with yrs.....:p By not disclosing, u have lost an opportunity to make more friends and have good competitions.:D Anyway, we respect yr choice.;)
    Lee:)

    yoh!

    i guess i'm kinda swaku and unaware of such games/clubs that exist, just when i was thinking about where the badminton clubs are in singapore.

    would love to join but am working overseas at the moment :( but will definitely look you guys up when i'm back for holidays.

    btw i stay in the NE region, so i presume IMH = institute of mental health @ buangkok right?

    cheers

    Joshww81,

    I was away from singapore for 9 years and when I returned in January this year I was just as lost as you - dont know where to play badminton and find "kaki". Luckily I chanced upon this wonderful forum - lo and behold, here I am playing with many other BC members! :D

    So no worry mate!

    Its been a long time since I log in.

    I play at:

    Tuesday: Kembangan CC
    Thursday: Tampines North CC
    Sunday: Rivervale Primary School

    Anyone keen on friendly match with my group can be arranged on Sunday at the school. But that will be from July onwards as the school is closed for exam and holiday till end June.
