Glen Waverley Sat. 7:30-10:00pm Titan Badminton Club
We are running a Saturday night social badminton with a competitive edge.
Cost per session is $8.00
The standard of players is B grade and above. However about a 1/4 of the players are beginners and each week there is a free 1 hour group coaching lesson to help beginners integrate with the better players.
For exact location details and updates of our club please visit :
Note : There is another thread with details of our club but the title had the wrong time.

By request from a member of our club, he inisted that we include an important detail: Supper 10:30pm-12:30am after badminton
Some people (eg. Possum) might only want to attend supper afterward.

where are you guys having supper?
06-01-2006, 08:19 PM #4
Because everyone is hungry after playing 3.5 hrs of badminton and it is a very social atmosphere.
It gives everyone a chance to catch up with one another and for the club to announce any news.
Another reason is that it gives some people (eg/ Possum) a variation to their diet of KFC.

well... i am trying to find out where u guys are heading. I cant drive, so i can only join if you guys are having support really near where i stay. It is a hassle to take cab in melbourne suburb. you wait for ages for the cab

Let me know what suburb you are in and I'm sure someone will be happy to give you a lift. Some of our players come from as far as Altona to play. I believe s few people gets a lift each week as well.
Send me a private message and I will see who can give you a lift. Don't take a taxi, it is quite expensive.

Where is the furtherest you have gone to play badminton?
I think the furtherest I have gone in Victoria is Kilsyth but I have played in Malaysia and Hanoi. Both experiences overseas was very memorable due to the conditions. The place in Malaysia was on one floor of an old shopping centre. In Hanoi we played in the Botanical Gardens (outdoors) with some of their state players. Surprisingly there was only a little breeze but the surface is hazardous.

distance for badminton-sounds like a new thread to make
Well when I lived in Bendigo, I drove to Geelong once for a tournament! I also drove back from Melbourne one night to play in Bendigo tournament, bad idea driving 2 and a bit hours and playing straight away - your legs are still stiff!
When I went to China I was looking very hard for a place to play badminton, however we never seemed to get around to actually going to the courts grrrr
And on my honeymoon, I think I would have been KILLED if I had dared look for a badminton court whilst overseas then either hehe!

Cannot believe you are still online after playing badminton tonight. Did you go to La Porchetta with everyone else ? I went with the other group to Rock Kung.
We had a pretty good turn out tonight with 23 players. There were 3 new players from Singapore. It was interesting that they mentioned that there were no clubs such as ours in Singapore. The only way you can play socially is if you book a court yourself and ask friends to play.
They seemed to enjoyed themselves tonight.

Yeah mate, a good movie on, so watching that
AND keeping up with the latest BADMINTON news - Taufik is in the final against Bao Chun Lai in the final of the Indonesian Open.
AND John Moody is against Kidd in the Ballarat International tomorrow (or later this morning hehe!)
06-03-2006, 01:00 PM #16
You mean that Brian Bosworth movie on 7 ?
I hope Taufik is back to his old self because Bao Chun Lai is pretty consistent. I think Bao Chun Lai should smash more when he plays.
I saw John Moody play at the Commonwealth games but I have never seen Nicholas Kidd play.
