Thread: Anyone in Leeds???
06-14-2007, 05:52 AM #18
Anyone want to play then?
I am now living in Leeds and playing quite regularly - sometimes doubles with clubs and sometimes singles with a my friend Dave.
Unfortunately I have not had any responses from the previous post...
Was discussing with Dave trying to get more people involved in some informal sessions, a mix of singles and some doubles, so thought I'd ask again.
Ideally it would be good to build a group of players who are of a reasonably advanced standard who have perhaps played competitively in leagues in Leeds or elsewhere. This is not an essential prerequisite, but I have said this with two things in mind:
- A consistent standard amongst the group will make for better games
- Better games help you to improve further, which (personally speaking) is why I am trying to organise this.
Anyway, let me know if you are interested. The venue would probably be the Carnegie sports centre in LS6.

Thanks for your invitation but I'm now back to France for good to carry on with my studies.
During the year, a friend of mine introduced me to Headingley Badminton Club which was very close to my place and consequently quite convenient.
Now that you mention Dave (long hair, very funny and talkative on the court? Is it him?), we might have met on Mondays at the Carnegie sports center...
Good luck in your search for players.

i think richard h & dave at the leeds league were trying to organise some sort of regular singles session last summer & there wasn't much interest. Could be worth trying them to see if their still up for it as their more your standard. Lydia at uni staff should have their contact numbers.
If your playing at Carnegie try sundays - the staff are often very lax regarding finishing times, unlike their weekday counterparts.

Let Me Know Richard. Where there is singles I will be there.

We were very glad you joined us, even for a short time (espically in the ladies match against Horsforth)
Good luck with the studies, hope France is treating you well
Best wishes from us at Headingley BC
(BTW - Please remember that not all places in Headingley are quite as crime ridden as were you lived - especially with your neighbours)
