    The bald Indian guy at U of C is Sarosh Wadia. I play against him whenever I can make it in ( usually Friday nights). I like U of C more than Hillhurst as not many play feather at Hillhurst and the concrete floor kills my knees.

    I'm the big ugly white guy with the massive backhand and big boomer of a smash.

    LOL, your name gave yourself away enough already. What nights do you play at strathmore? Still playing with 17 to 18 lbs tension string?

    I think there are couple of groups at hillhurst that play feather now. I joined U of C for this fall session for a change of scene.

    Strathmore club is in hiatus until we can secure the gym again ( usually thursdays nights) though Kenton ( the guy who coaches the high school team out my way) is having open gym one or two nights a week this month.

    Funny everyone thinks I still string my raquets really low, but I've been playing with 21-22 pounds for about five years, though I tend to stretch the strings pretty quickly. (gee I wonder why)

    That new Kevlar 7 I was trying out I had strung at 25 pounds, but I just couldn't control the damned thing. Ryan (Legere) took one swing with it and said " nice raquet, but ain't for you"

    Turns out he's right - went back to my old Forza 9000 and started hitting bombs again.

    Now I'm thinking I should know who you is,cooler.

    By the way the Strathmore team tounrey is March 11 and 12th, 2005.

    Well, was there on Friday ..but didn't know who you were ..that's there.
    so didn't get to say hi, but wow..

    Hey there,

    I just moved to Calgary and am looking for a good environment to play in. I dislike players who think they are elite.

    Basically just looking for fun friendly players and don't mind a little bit of friendly competition as well.

    Is there any badminton clubs located downtown? or possibly near 17st,17thave.

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    i know it's not a club or anything.

    but i think one of the closest to 17th ave sw would have to be the talisman centre. there's no drop in but the new gyms are a great facility.

    still a ~ $8 drop in, and u dunno who and how many people will be playing badminton. ALso, u have to book the court too. I doubt u can book the 'new section'. The regular court have poor lighting, white roof, white walls. Next to the 2 official size swimming pools, u will feel more humid than playing in SE asia.
