Would you guys say that the experiences might sometimes seem like a tournament experience in that you improve so much in a tournament, and are stretched to your limits to win against opponents who are just as good or better than you. I swear, if I went to a tournament every month, I would be twice as good as I am now. One weekend at a tournament and you improve just as much as if you had been training for at least a month or more.
I have had the experience when playing players who are much better than me (I wouldn't dare play a national or international player for at least another 5 years) and I've had the same feeling as most of you guys had. It's so mezmerizing watching how they apparently seem to walk to the bird, relaxed, take a stroke, and send you running after it. It makes your court suddenly seem so small, and all your efforts and reaches futile.
At the same time, it made me realize that it wasn't neccessarily how much you seemed to run as it was how smooth you were. I mean I could be running everywhere and dead by the second game, but I could be calm if I learned to lunge and react faster. It's such a strange and humbling thing to see players just sort of walk, stare the bird, wait for it, and just flick and send you running again. All the while, they look as though they were at walking speed, while you are running everywhere without any success.
Does anyone know professional players who play in Vancouver - I heard there were a few at the VRC(some lady was ranked 16th in the worlds way back in her prime I heard)? I'm not too familiar with the national and international players actually. I have never gotten the chance to look at their games or anything...anywhere I can get those? And of course hollyburn country club produces national players, and the head coach there is from China...but I don't have the luxery of paying about $10,000 a year for a membership just to have a chance to see her maybe once a week...

i have played a little with Mark Burgess at a demonstration but nothing like the legends you guys have played with. He wasn't really trying at all, but it was good anyway. Also our coach is pretty damn good

I played with Mia Audina a couple of years ago. I played a mix dubble against some less famous guys from the Netherlands. Mia Audina is pretty famous now, by winning silver at athens, so I'm pretty proud to have played along her side

I haven't played with pros. But with this guy from a university club.. He's real good, and he asked me to play with him. We rallied and then we played a doubles game. I sorta brought him down. We played against these other guys that were older and better than me. I'm not that bad, better than most people in my school. Got 2 mvp awards, but when compared to them, i wasn't all that great. They were crazy, i had lots of fun, but missed on some shots. But u'll learn alot playing against people. Even if u lose, u'll learn why u lost and how u can improve.

play with pros
Yes, I do have the experience when I was a teenager. Running around the court like a mad dog. Good experience indeed. Enjoyed the torture. After a few years, my turn to torture other new players. haha.

Have you tried playing with Dr Iggy Gan from NSW? He stays in Wollongong now and still playing at the uni. Truly veteran and a great player. Punch Gunalan Senior.

Training with Misbun Sidek, Roslin Hashim and Hafiz Hashim
This pics taken during my training sessions with Nusa Mahsuri Club.
I played with Roslin Hashim ( 2-7 )
Managed to secure two points..that's good enough..hehe.
I played with Misbun Sidek ( 0-5 )
He's simply superb and I cant even play my normal game.
By the way,this is a good exposure for me as an ex Zone Bangsar player and currently university player.

Wow, that's excellent! How did you get picked up into the national badminton scene? Were you training for a while, or just have raw talent?!
