    welcome aboard. which community centers have you been playing at. it sounds like you have quickly outgrown them and need a more challenging environment. since there are many local BF'ers, we can give you some recommendations.

    have you been to collingwood, britannia or any of the richmond clubs?

    I know a guy who could win ALL his games, regardless of which (ALL)community centre he frequents, including Collingwood, which has pretty high standards, but not including ClearOne and maybe Cambie in Richmond; I believe Eric Ngiam plays there

    So the "advance" level you've tagged yourself is maybe relative to where you play, and hence the sound advice of badrad. It's probably time for you to upgrade to more challenging games at more competitive community centres.

    Do you have any preference in where you'd like to play?

    You'll find little "pockets" of really good badminton in some small places. There was a club in langley that had several really strong players ( mostly doubles) that would break out the feather shuttles when I was there. White Rock area primarly rec players and not that great for competition. VRC and Clear One have a wide range of talent that can take you right up to national level players.

    I think it is safe to say that there is always someone who plays better than you but for most of us...having a good game is more important than beating everyone. You should try playing some of the provincial tournaments if you want some competition

    It seems most of you here are much more experience than me and know the many good players. Is it possible to name the best players from each club or community center so I can go there directly to challenge them myself to compare my level with theirs.

    well I think this page has your answer.

    http://www.badmintonbc.com/pages/ranking/ranking.asp

    The names there are people who are pretty much or close to "the best" that you can find locally. You'll notice that a majority of people are from Vancouver Racquets Club (VRC) or Vancouver Lawn and Tennis Club (VLT). So your best bet is to join those clubs.

    in your introduction thread you mention that Richho is more advanced than you. that could help us to gauge, and offer you recommendations. why don't you try britannia on friday night or saturdays. look for a guy named Mike and beat him up!

    We shouldn't use the word "beat up" . Let's be civilized . And who's Mike anyway?

    TOOOOO FUNNEEEE!!! ... sorry ... you remember in my previous posting I said I know this guy who can consistently win all his games in any community centre he visits? Well, it's this Mike guy from Brittania.

    Good luck in your quest, and please post the results/review of that match here.

    Is this the same Mike N that also plays at Collingwood? Well, if you you show up at Collingwood on Sundays 10am-1pm, there are about half a dozen younger players (if they show up) that are of compatible level. We play feather shuttles and it is generally a friendly atmosphere but competitive double games.

    Cheers

    Where about is Collingwood. I'm trying to think if I've been there, but I'm semi-certain I'm thinking of a different club.

    badrad will doubt your level if i am more advanced than you.In fact,abecde is just humble , i am way subpar than him,abcde,you might take badrad's recommendations and try to play against mike and I wish you a victory. I am now worried about that I might get in trouble for in your introduction you said i can beat most of the players. I don't want to be targeted.

    It's the place on Joyce Street near a Skytrain station (i.e. Joyce). It's a gym inside a neighbourhood house. Our fellow BFer Break-My-String runs the session. The session runs on Sunday mornings.

    This thread is just too funny. I was just ROTFLMAO!!

    I can just picture abcdefghijklmno going into each playing facility and stare at each of the players there and then slowly going "My name is Chen and I'm the weakest student at Jin Wo Mun and I'm here to challenge you all" (paraphrasing from Bruce Lee's Fists of Fury)

    Well, come out to Richmond Badminton Club on sundays and I'm sure I can arrange for some good games for you.

    Hey, maybe we should get SmashingBird to take up the challenge!!!
