    Try to contact Cheung Tung of Insksport by email or 'phone 97879118 and join him in his frequent badminton sessions, which are held in the Kowloon area, including the Kowloon Park courts and the nearby Kwun Chung courts. He has taken many badminton forum members to such badminton sessions. The costs come to about HK$50-HK$60 per person for a 3-4 hours session. If you have a lot of time to spare, you can join me in a more out-of-the-way location that requires a good two hours of commute. My sessions are dirt cheap, at less than HK$15 for 2 hours in air-conditioned comfort. :D

    Thanks Taneepak

    Hey there! Nice of you to reply on my inquiry. We are going to stay at Holiday Inn. What is your relation with Cheung Tung? Will you also be there when we plan to play? I'll try to contact him/her(?) when we're already there. We are looking forward to playing in your country. I heard that there are a lot of good players in your place. We are just average Class C players. How about you? Sorry but we will only be staying there for 4 days. What time do you usually play? By the way, we are planning to buy badminton rackets and shoes when we get there. Where do you think will be the best place to buy them? What is your email address?

    I live in the New Territories, which is not near the Golden Mile Holiday Inn. Unfortunately, I won't be there if you decide to play with him in the Kowloon Park area. It is just too far out of the way for me. Cheung Tung plays badminton with me periodically. His standard of play is about C. If you want to play with grade A or B players or even ex Hong Kong champions, he can arrange that too. He owns Inskysport and is an OEM supplier of badminton equipment and supplies. If you want to buy racquets and shoes, then he is about the best source.
    I suggest you email Cheung Tung at inskysport@yahoo.com.hk re arrangement for a session or two of badminton around Oct. 28-30. I have spoken to Cheung Tung and he is expecting to hear from you.
    I will pm you my email address separately.

    Yes, I would think so. I suggest you contact Cheung Tung by 'phone or email for details of any arrangement he may be making for PrinceTT.

    12 years?!

    wow! 12 years?! :eek: You must be a grade A palyer by now. We've been playing for only a year now. It is just now that Badminton became popular in our place. How often do you play? Maybe you could teach us some of your techniques.:) Where do you usually play? Hope to see you soon. Thanks!

    PrinceTT, Cheung Tung has made arrangements for a badminton night on Friday night, 8-10pm, Oct. 29. Other details in a separate pm to you.
    For Machiko, you are welcome to join them. Suggest you call Cheung Tung at 97879118 just to confirm, as Cheung is aware of your interest in joining in the fun.
    There will be about 15 players, including 4 from PrinceTT, Machiko and 10 players from Cheung Tung's side, who are grades B and C, possibly including Mr Ng of Luxis sports (grade B).

    You and your friend Waiwai8 can contact Cheung Tung by email and ask to join his weekly sessions. You are right about where you live, near the China/HK border, which is a bit too far out of the way to play in Kowloon, the place where Cheung Tung's sessions are held. However, Wai should not find it too inconvenient.

    I think this session has about reached the maximum no. of players. Maybe, you can wait for the proposed November trip by Wai and his friend.
