    Thumbs up Thanks to DanceStar!

    Hi, Dance Star:
    How are you ?
    Thanks for the respond. And thanks for the detailed informations about badminton clubs in JP. Unfriendly badminton situations happeneded in all badminton clubs in Massachusettes. I think other badminton clubs in the states also are the same.
    You have good/friendly badminton clubs can recommend in Shinjuku area?
    thanks in advance,
    Bruno

    Hi,Bruno

    If you or your friend use Japanese, check this website to find a club near your place.
    http://park8.wakwak.com/~badminton/c.../bad_index.cgi

    I use this website when I look for a club for non-japanese.

    When I type " 川越 (kawagoe) in the website, there are 3clubs.
    But I am not sure if it is near your place.

    It takes 1hour from Kawagoe to Shibuya with changeing a train at Ikebukuro.
    Our clubs member use English and Japanese, some people use Chinese.
    If you want to join us, let me know.

    Hi, Dancestar

    1.Winner stay system
    I have never seen the Winner stay system in Japan.

    2.Challenge system
    Challenge system is a system which lower level player challenge to upper level player?
    Almost people play with a same level or upper level players. When Upper level players teach badminton to Lower level players, they play together. But if you don't have a friend or a coach as upper level, it is difficult to play with upper players. because they also want to play with same or upper level players. If you want to play with strong player, had better to participate a tounament, and make a friend who is stronger than you.

    3.Singles
    If there are not so many people, some people play singles.
    If there are many people, it is difficult to play Singles.
    There are many tounament for doubles, but there is a few Singles tounament. Many Japanese players play not only for their helty life , but also for win the touanaments. So they play doubles a lot.


    I think you can play singles if you can choice the time and the place.
    Or you lental a court in a public elementary school around your place, you can make a Singles badminton team.

    I can't say that they aren't user friendly. The gym and clubs believe that it is user friendly for their system. If all courts are winner system, it is also not user friendly. Almost Japanese players don't know winner system and challenge sysytem as you said. So if you have many friends, you can give the idea to the gym and courts.
    If Many players feel the systems are better than current system, they use the systems, I think.
    (sometimes old stone-head players don't want to change...)

    Our club are many non-japanese players. but none of them said to me the system.
    I will try the winner system. If almost players want this system, we should take a better system.

    I just wrote as I felt.
    Thanks for reading

    Miyuki

    Most people playing badminton in Japan are friendly.


    The problem I see is:
    1. Winner stay system is not used on any courts in Japan.
      (BUT, in Meguro one place does this on one court)
    2. Challenge system is not used on any courts in Japan.
    3. Singles play is not considered
    That is all.

    Hi,Anek999

    Did you meet with Boonsak Ponsana?
    When you come to Japan, I think he was still stay in Japan to visit his new sponcer company Kumpoo.

    Long time ago, you sent a mail to me, So I thought you give me a e-mail directly when you come. I went to see Japan open everyday to report for badzine.info. Thailand young mix pair was very good in final. There are some Thailand cheering group, they were also great!

    Next time, let me know directly.

    Hi Miyuki... I didnt meet Boonsak Ponsana in Tokyo.
    He called me before leaving Bangkok to the competiton in China before Japan Open. By that time, I thought I would not find time to visit Japan, so I told Boonsak that I could not go to Japan this year.
    So, this year I didnt have chance to meet you too.
    OK, promise next time if I visit Tokyo, I definitely email you directly earlier.
    I had chance to watch that mixed doubles game in Thailand. Thank you Miyuki and hope you are doing good in Tokyo.

    Default thanks!

    Hi, Miyuki:
    thanks for helping me out.
    I would like to go to Shibuya to see you and your club overthere.
    However, I did not bring any racket with me to Japan. I have tried to buy 1 racket for a short term usage. I went to Wembley and Winsor in Ikebukuro, but I have found nothing. Also, I went to Kawagoe Sport shop. All shops do not sell Sotx rackets here. I only found those Yonex/Wilson/Gosen new models with over-priced tags. Why nobody sell low price with high quality rackets like Victor, Sotx...here in Japan? I have broken too many Yonex rackets already(more than 10). I am not a Yonex fan any more.
    I have also tried the Sekaimon(ebay in Japan) and Amazon in Japan. I could not find any racket I want.
    So, may be I just give up to play in Japan(well still good for visiting).
    Thank you, Miyuki. You are such good(kind-heart) person like to help peoples who you do not even know.
    Thank you.
    Bruno

    Hi,Bruno

    Sorry for late reply.
    I didn't know the brand of Sotx.
    If you want to need a low price racket, I saw some Victor in a sports department.

    If you come to Shibuya, the gym borrow you a racket. So you only bring your shoes for indoor.

    If you are OK to buy used racket, My friend said he can sell a gosen racket as 3000JPY. He used it , but he start playing other sports instead of badminton.So he sold his racket to his friends.

    Anyway, Don't need to give up to play in Japan

    Hi, Miyuki:
    Thanks for the offers and helps.
    I am leaving Japan tomorrow and going back to Boston. If you have chance to come to Boston, you are invited to our club to play badminton.
    www.maugus.com
    Next time, if I come here to Japan again, I will bring my rackets. This time I got no exercise at all. I came here first time for 18 days without any exercise and just eating, hot spas, sleep, sightseeings...then gained some pounds.

    Fun, fun, fun, by the way.
    Sayonara,
    Bruno

    Hi,Remo
    Thank you for your comment.
    I have been here for 5 years. I belieave that I could reply a mail to all people once at least.
    It was hard for me to make and type sentenses in English. It took 1hours to make 3 lines sentenses 5 years ago. I could improve my English level because all people here help me as a English teacher, haha.

    Actually,I couldn't help a few cases.Especially, when I was too busy in my work. I hope more people help newcomer in Japan with me.
