    Default How many countries have you played in?

    A rather International question. If you are a pro, please don't answer!
    A search of the forum showed no threads of this manner..

    For me;
    England: lots of venues. Newcastle, Durham, Hull, Leeds, Manchester, B'ham, London, Soton, L'brough

    Wales: Bangor!!!!

    Holland: Amsterdam

    Hong Kong

    Malaysia: KL, Ipoh

    Australia: Brisbane, Sydney

    Canada: Toronto, Vancouver

    I suppose I'm not a real badminton fanatic after all: when I travel sports just isn't on my agenda (well, except for jogging in the mornings)...

    But if I were to go to Malaysia or China I guess it would be a natural thing to do... In fact, I've only been in Asia once, and that was Japan, and well, suffice it to say that during my three weeks stay (mainly in fantastic Tokyo) I didn't even think about badminton!

    London, UK: I used to live next door to 4 badminton courts run by the city council, and for a quid, I could play until I drop.

    Hong Kong: During my recent trip back there, I played at a club on the Kowloon side where they have these thin rubber mats covering the wood floor. They allow for excellent traction and are very gentle on the joints. State-of-the-art!

    Wellesley, Massachusetts, USA: They have a great coach, that more than makes up for all the other deficiencies!
