    Hi all

    I've been in Dubai for a couple of months and gather that badminton is not a big sport over here (they don't know what they are missing!!).

    I'm looking for a club ideally or alternatively someone of a similar standard to play with on a regular basis.

    I have been playing for a number of years and was playing in a local league until I moved to Dubai.

    I live in the marina area, but I don't mind travelling to play.

    PLEASE HELP - I'll go mad if I don't play soon. :crying:

    Cheers

    Simon

    I would certainly be interested. Although I fear that my standard is going to have dropped after 7 months of not playing (and I know my fitness levels have!!).

    Whereabouts do you play and what time, if I can I may try to come along this weekend (work permitting).

    Cheers

    Simon :)

    It can be windy at times but a good player can adjust to the head wind from the sea

    why go indoor when you can enjoy the sun outside?

    We can play in Dragon Mart courts
