I want to know where i can play!!!
I just wanted to know where i would be able to join a group/club to play badminton in HK. I'll be here for 2 months over the Australian summer holidays. but i'm usu. working Mon to sat but off at night.
I didn't bring a racket back so I have no racket at the moment. but will be considering buying a racket early next month.
if you guys/gals can fit an extra person to play, could you please kindly SMS me or call me on 65300969. I'm living in Lai chi Kok.

Thank you very much Mr Tan, Cheung Tung & Lau Geen
Hi Mr Tan, Mr Cheung Tung, Lau Geen and Hanson
Just wanted to say thanks for your hospitality (although unfortunately I didn't see you Mr Tan) throughout my stay in Hong Kong.
As a someone who has played in Hong Kong as a traveller, I would personally recommend contacting taneepak through private messaging (Mr Tan) who will put you in contact with Mr Cheung Tung who both knows about different clubs to play in and is a supplier of badminton goods at a very good rate.
I have attended 2 different clubs and bought 3 racquets off Mr Cheung Tung. For the better players, ask to play with Lau Geen, he's pretty sharp !
Thank you all very much

Hi WaiWai8, how did your games go? I am sure Ah Tung was no match for you. What about Lau Keen? Did you test him out? Lau Keen may be a good singles player but he is an atrocious stringer. You should see the terrible things he did to his racquets which he strung himself.
Sorry about not meeting you this time. I don't now venture out from Tuen Mun, which is where I live, to go to HK island or Kowloon too often. Glad to hear you had a good time.

No kidding! Even with the West Rail Line, you still have to spend an hour on public transportation from Tuen Mun to HK Island. So you probably get off at Nam Cheong Station and transfer to the Tung Chung Line.

hello, to all the people of the forums! most especially to taneepak who is so very welcoming to everyone here!!!
anyway, i am originally from the Philippines where I am an average Class C player (well, Class C as far as the Philippines is concerned, dunno here in HK). i will be staying here in HK for the next 3 months at least and looking for groups i can play with on a regular basis.
i live in Mui Wo, but am willing to travel to as far as Honk Kong Side just to play... ehehehe...
here's hoping someone will reply to my post... thanks!!!

Welcome to this forum.
Have you sent any PM to taneepak yet? I'm sure Mr. Tan will kindly help you out in this.

I had an accident half a year ago and injured my back. I had not fully recovered yet. It might take another 3-6 months. Once I get over, I will continue to learn from my son and his coach.
Hope you have a happy time in HK.
