    Hey Yipom,

    Were you at Burnaby South last Saturday morning? I went there for the first time and was quite impressed with the facility. Lighting was alright but half side of the courts facing the morning sun gets the sun in the backcourts. Flooring is decent. Six courts going with three more possible if there's more drop-ins.

    Unfortunately, there's not alot of good players there. Some of the players from the school team were there though, I would have left if not for them. Court rotations are not consistent cuz you could find newbie drop-ins hogging the courts playing singles since nobody bothered with them. They only get off when the guy in charge checks in. Even after he exasperatingly requested no singles and tried to get rotation going, nobody bothered since no-one wants to play with newbies. All two hours to play and all I got was 4 games to show for.

    What they need is better organization... get a baddy club come in and rent the place for that time. But it's not possible as I understand that the school opens the baddy courts to the public only on Saturdays.

    Even though it's within walking distance from my home, I don't think I will be going back there anytime soon. I would only head out there if I get a full set of players for doubles (seems that's what the good players did... they basically played among themselves), otherwise it's not really worth it.
    Sorry and very dissapointed to hear that, but since its still a (not as badminton popular) High school, there will be newbies there. Yea i think i did show up that day. Yea it basically is kinda like a Hang out place, so its always better to go with buddies, yea basical 1/3 of the people there were my buddies =p. Anyways sorry about that.

    South's kinda desserted. I've seen Langara players play there once or twice, but they dont go often. I used to go once in a while, but I kinda just got lazy. Right now I'm suffering from multiple injuries that might just end my badminton career. O well, it was a good 2 years
    say... who are you Yipom? Were you there say... 3 or 4 weeks ago?

    Hey Yipom,

    No worries... I must have picked the wrong time of the year to drop-in. It's not too bad once you have buddies to play with, but lone drop-in is not very rewarding. But that doesn't take away the fact that it's a very decent facility. Anyway, thanks for pointing out the place.

    It's open for summer, yes, but pretty sparse. Bring your own group of 4 or more, is my suggestion.

    Yes, they are very good.

    My friend at the VRC says some of the best players around town come from that college.
