    James,

    Where have we met before? Im not sure if you have met, but if you know Gafar, then you'll know me.

    Anyway, Hows Bidgley BC going? Are you playing in the Birmingham league?

    Yes Im still at Streetly, and coaching a few young players there.

    John.

    At streetly at one of the singles league days.

    I played you for fun and got no points!!

    You also gave alfu a game that day too. he might have got one point.
    I dont play for Bidgely, am at leicester uni in term time.

    Say hello to Handal and his dad for me when you see him next, and tell him I am inh china training everyday so I can beat him!

    John,

    Can you let me know where do you play or coach in streetly and when? This is just for me to plan my journey there as I dont have a car. I think I definately need some coaching now. No more confidence and steps. Can you let me know how much do you charge for coaching and anything else that you need from me.

    Thanks a lot,
    Philip

    Philip,

    Thanks for the reply. I coach at streetly most days. I mainly train The World Class Start and Potential programs to the elite juniors in the midlands area.

    I dont have any session going. I only coach for England juniors and private.

    If your interested in private coaching, you can contact me posting your Email address and i will return your mail.

    Regards

    John

    ohh, that's a tricky and sensitive question

    let me think back then...at the very least, better than league D standard.

    (there's only one league in HK)

    This is my first year in this singles league, in division 3. I think last year , there was someone in Division 1 from inside the UK top 50, and I don't think they finished top of the league. Jamesd20 may know.

    I think Cheung was referring to the A, B, C, D level of play.

    There was a few in the league in top 50. But rankings dont mean much, choose the right tournaments to play and pretty much anyone any good can be top 70 (no offence to anyone, they are roughly correlative, but not everyone plays in them)

    Good luck in your upcoming matches!! I might make it down soon (exams over soon, but going home as well)
