    All in all, theres only about 7 graded Tournament a year in Victoria (The we are better then you state )

    Ballarat Graded
    Altona Graded
    CBA Graded
    Victorian Graded
    Melbourne Uni Graded
    Monash Uni Graded
    Warnabool

    .. and maybe 1 or 2 other JTUltra Tournament and other non-annual fixtured Tournament.

    But thats not nearly enought to satisfy those of us that arnt whipped by our wifes like Ashley .. we free badminton men want more graded tournaments.
    52 weekends and only 7 tournaments .. you do the maths.

    ..and not to mention the really young and the really old can play those and their exclusive junior and senior/vetran tournaments .. unfair but thats life ..

    Haha...good 1! i think no body knows our spiritual towards this sport unless he/she really into it but, u may need to spend some time with your gf or family once in a bluemoon i perhaps?

    i hardly play tournament in Malaysia due to work commitment. the last i had is in the company level which is more than half year ago and the one before is in 2008.

    with its graded competitions, melbourne is a good place for non-elite badminton players. in malaysia there is no such thing and if you're not at least at district level you'd just get hammered in the very first rd in any competition there is so the rest of us mortals just don't bother. so yeah, although the badminton community here is smaller there is great pasison about the sport too.

    Still got Anthony as my badminton companion this year .
    We'll be entering in A grade in Ballarat and B grade in Altona (Just to keep my winning run in B double there )
    .. Anthony hasnt been playing at all this year so we might struggle early on .. but plenty of tournament to come .. so hoping the trophy cabinet fills up again in 2010 .. with some interstate C grade title added to my belt as well ... might raid NSW or Queensland this year.

    I can't believe Vien is still denying that this badminton (and who knows what else) leash is getting shorter. Vien used to play practically every day, now I see him on the court only once a month and he is not even married yet.

    Are you still playing the Ballarat Tournament? Anthony is getting worried your master won't let you out to play.

    Change of plans most people are driving up on Sunday. In any case I will be in overseas until 8am Sunday morning (the tournament day). I doubt I will be in any shape to play. So this year I will give you are chance to get a trophy as I won't be attending.

    Courts are OK, light OK, tap water really really bad, get sick everytime i dink it yet you would think i would stop drinking it wouldnt you

    Theres 3 courts, games are fixtured, so not just running on the court or staying on endlessly ..

    .. Standard OK beginners -> A grade, no one there really Open grade or Sam standard... Duc and Tommy plays there.

    Organiser does a good job mixing the games up.

    And the best thing of all its only 15min from home for me
