    Thumbs up Australian working in Badminton shop in Osaka, Japan

    Hi folks,
    I have just registered.

    I use the name Joe on the web, but my name is Alexander.
    I am in Japan on a working holiday from Australia, and found a job at established badminton store and web shop Shuttle House http://shuttle-house.com/en/ in Osaka Yonex, Mizuno, Gosen etc., if it's coded JP we have it.

    My background is in bicycle mechanics and retail, (and I have a degree in Japanese) but I figured I'd try something new while I was here. The guys here have taken me under their wing, and taught me stringing and a bunch of other new things about the sport, and I'm looking forward to getting involved while I have such a good opportunity.

    I most look forward to picking brains on stringing, attitudes towards products in the market, and gaining a global perspective on the sport and the market.

    Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!!

    Default Congrats

    Hi Alexander,

    congrats on your new job.

    I try to make it to shuttlehouse about 1'ce a year, usually during the Japan Superseries. Will you still be there then?

    There will definetly be a lot of people envious of you in your new position. Wonder what professionals will visit the shop during your time there.

    Do you play badminton?

    Hi Shosasaki,

    Thanks, yes I plan on hanging around for a while. Come on in and say hello!

    I have to admit, I'm a complete noob. I could probably count on one hand the amount of receives I've managed to hit so far. I applied for a position doing translating and working on the web shop, but it looks like that's not what fate had in store for me!

    Currently looking for a regular sparring partner in the Nanba area for mornings or late nights...

    And a pair of shoes, as nothing that we stock is available in big enough sizes
