    I recently returned from a trip to India. while we were there, we went to play badminton at a club (don't remember the name, but it had a horse racing section). while we were there, we noticed that people were extremely hostile towards any newcomers, one guy who was there on his own finally told us the rules. we got onto the court, and people were standing right on the edge of the court, counting our score and waiting for us to finish. which was okay, but the next time we tried to get on the court, one group who had just gotten off the next court also tried to get on. we had to argue with them to get our turn, and they were making fun of they way we were playing (one of our group is a tennis player). we finally got them off the court and played our game. after this we talked to the guy on his own, and he told us that the members really dislike newcomers, and that he had been there for 3.5 hours and only gotten on the court once! he told us that they try to bully new people away so they don't interfere with the "good" players court time

    a lot of this is to be seen at every club, but generally club members just ignore new people, they are not openly hostile to them. We were there with 4 people so we were not asking anyone to play or anything, This club was very elitist and arrogant, at least it seemed that way to us. we won't be going back there, that's for sure!

    I hope the rest of you have better experiences playing in Chennai than we have, like I said I hope it was just this club's members, not a general attitude.

    Mate,

    What do you expect from the elitist of MRC (madras race club). I remember how some members from our club clobbered them. Now they have started using some good players who were ex state i guess.

    If you want decent games and you are a beginner then please dont go to snobbish clubs clike MRC or MCC.

    I guess you should have done your homework. If you are not famous or great with baddy then dont expect any respect in these clubs. I guess that is how the world tends to operate now a days (atleast in india).

    What a sorry state for a country which used to be the bane of kindness and understanding.

    Cheers

    Hi guys, I went to enquire at the indira nagar sports club a few days back. This is what I found out. At present they offer only a lifetime membership which is a whopping 30k bucks! not to include the extra 200 bucks you have to pay every month. How I wish they had at least an annual membership! The manager said that there were some new courts being constructed and they should be ready by sep-oct. Maybe they'll introduce an annual membership then.

    Till then I don't know where to play. Can anyone please suggest an indoor court somewhere in the vicinity of Indira Nagar/ Adyar/ Thiruvanmiyur? Sandhya what news have you got?
