    you have to know someone to sign you in a game or unless you can read Chinese to join yourself. I don't host any game this year so its harder to bring a stranger to a game myself. I have a 3 hour game in Kowloon Park Wed if you are interested to share since I also have a game on Tuesday and I might be tired out!

    Hi all. I am looking for work in HK now and I will be here for the long term. I am looking for a place to play, within a 45 minute commute from Tsim Sha Tsui. I speak fluent Cantonese and English so I should mix well with whatever group you have. My level is about intermediate-advanced in Hong Kong. Feel free to PM me or respond in this thread. Cheers.

    Hahahaha. Well I left most of my treasures at home unfortunately. But I've brought my ti10 (2nd gen yellow) over with me. Then again, I don't think a racket necessarily determines the skill of a player. Rather the players ability. Thus don't laugh if you see me with the wrong footwear, basketball shorts and a bright pink jersey;) I could very well wipe that smirk off your face.
