We play at Bintang Milpitas on Saturday mornings and we mostly play doubles. I don't mind playing singles and I'm sure some others don't mind either. And there are plenty of courts.
Most of us use feather of various qualities. I use Victor Gold, some use AS10, and some use Aeroplane Black.
There are couple people who are quite good at net shots; some do pretty deceptive drops, and others are about average. I haven't seen anyone doing cross court backhand clear, though. I don't know if this matches your level of intermediate.
Hi kaki! - the level seems to be at par, however am looking for wekday play right after work.
Do you play then? If not, I'll try and join you guys next week on Saturday.
We have another group that plays Monday and Wednesday nights in San Carlos (Affinity), not in the South Bay though. I know this is far but typically Bintang Milpitas is super crowded on weeknights.

I'm not sure why my previous post requires moderation and still hasn't been approved. Anyway I wanted to say we have another group that plays in San Carlos (Affinity) on Monday and Wednesday nights but yes that's quite far.
