    Default Are you an advanced player ?

    Hi fellow players out there. For those of you that play this game often, you know how addictive it can be. You sometimes skipped your wife's birthday just to be with your buddies so that loser pay drinks alround. You can pay for other things if that is what you want, maybe dinner even. In our younger days, it can get outragious. We have mellowed somewhat now as we'r no longer 'young fighting cocks' anymore. In many ways we count ourselves very lucky as we have been able to play daily at toa payoh sports complex for several years now (mondays to fridays 3 to 6pm) . Yesterday a new player came by as a result of my posting. He is currently back in singapore from Cornell University in the USA doing his final year' honour in electrical engineering .(He is a scholar !!) This guy can play ,has loads of stamina . Thanks Winson . You 'r most welcome to come again. For those of you interested to have a game please call me first so that i can coordinate the number of players at each session. (You dont have to be a scholar but you do have to be likeable) My mobile is 96396168. Cheers.

    I may not be an advance player but can say truly an addicted one. I can remember some years back we a group of badminton addict(6persons) did beg the owner of the badminton court to let us play on the 1st, 2nd & 3rd day of the Chinese New Year. But now we do not do it anymore as the owner do not want to open the court again as we are the only group playing.
    p/s we are all married guys.

    Hi Chew5555

    Welcome onboard! It's nice to have another badminton fan to join us. I can't help noting that you play almost everyday during "working hours". You must be very lucky to be in such a situation.

    Hi Loh
    Guess I cant complain about life since I get to have my badminton fix everyday. But then I am currently 51 years and have worked for the past 33 years so I think I am entitled to take life more leisurely now. I love this game since my teen days and was in the F&N badminton scheme when it was first introduced in Singapore some 37 years ago. Then we trained in Upper Thomson Secondary School in the evenings under Richard Chee. (I think the best team then was the Toa Payoh Group which had Wong Soon Keat) When you passed 50 your body parts need some overhaul now and then, so singles is definitely out. I can play a decent game of doubles though. Take care and cheers.


    Hi Jimbo
    Heard about the fierce smashers at Serangoon Central from Steven Oh. Thats why we must celebrate youth , you can jumb smash and your knees dont buckle. Any good veterans at your place? ( Think besides Steven, you probably have Sandy at veteran level. ) Hope to catch up with your people one of these days. Cheers

    Hi Chew5555

    So you were one of the lucky and talented boys who received F&N sponsored training under a well known ex-National singles player. It is good to see you still enjoying the game when you are past 50 and to join BC recently to communicate with the other badminton fans.

    We have one thing in common though, ie, we had to start working at age 18, but I guess you had a better headstart as you were born later than me. During my days as a teenager, there were no F&N or Milo badminton coaching schemes. We just play on our own with no help from the experts and if you are good enough, you play for your school in friendly matches against other schools. No organized competitions like inter-school, regional or national tournaments and Cheers Age-groups! Cheers my friend!

    Hey Chew,
    You are definitely welcome to join us and several good veteran players there. Steven Oh is a regular but not Sandy. Powerful smashes? hmm... definitely NOT me.

    Hi my friends
    Just wondering whether anyone out there has a dvd of the 1985 All England Badminton Final between Zhao Jian Huo and Morten Frost. This is , in my opinion , one of the best singles matches and it is also rare because Zhao won even though he was not seeded at all for this tournament and had to play through the qualifying matches. He looked very different from what he looked like when he came to stay in Singapore few years back. His hair style was spiky and he was very muscular . I watched that match and recorded it on video ( then, there was no dvd) and my video is now poor quality. One of the best shots during this titanic match was Zhao's jumping back hand smash. Please call me 96396168 if you know where to get a dvd copy. Cheers
