    It's much better to have the police arrest him rather than take matters into your own hands. Once a person is tried and found guilty, your sports centre can justifiably ban him from entering the premises. Other sports centres will be entitled to do the same and you would also be entitled to name him and shame him (as having been found guilty) in other ways, such as posting his details on a website.

    You could also corner him in a dark alley after he was found guilty!

    Wowzers. I go to Killarney on Fridays and Saturdays too, and know exactly who you guys are talking about. Stupid Gordon Tan scared the thief away (so we couldn't talk to him and make him confess), ask him about it.

    If posting his picture here is a possible problem, I'm sure if someone provides a photo, it can magically appear on "someone's" photo blog.

    Maybe I'll start bringing my luggage lock and strap my bag to the benches as I play from now on.

    Default always keep an eye on your valuables...

    Last week at Queens Park Arenex one player had his cell phone and wallet stolen from his bag. He had his badminton bag close to the office door, but in an area where there is some traffic (not high access) - both badminton and public related. By the time he contacted his credit card companies, two of his cards already racked up $1000 each at an on-line gambling site. I think he did mentioned that he was covered by the credit card co's, but again something that you could possibly avoid with just a bit of diligence.
    1. Keep your valuables as close to you as possible.Avoid pile-ups of bags and clutter
    2. Avoid near public access ways.
    3. If possible only bring minimal money, cards, jewelry etc.
    4. If you have multi-compartment bags, avoid putting valuables into easy access side compartments. Better to put into a non-descript pouch and bury into the deepest cavity. Stick into a shoe or sock - a good deterence is smell...
    5. If it is a common group, help each other by buddy watching.

    LOL. You know this trick works on Customs people too. A friend brought in pirated DVDs from Asia and wrapped them in his pile of dirty socks and underwear. The Customs people didn't even bother to stick their hand in the bag once they saw/smelled what was in there.

    That's only for phones that are CDMA and don't have sim cards.

    Just want to add that its a good idea to keep an empty carton from your birdies so you can shove your cell phone and minimal valuables in so that its would be less attractive for someone to steal.

    still applies to GSM based models.
    you can take the phone and throw away the simcard, but the phone is assigned with imei numbers. report the imei and they'll blacklist it along with any associated sim number thats currently using the phone. they can easily find out who from which provider is using it... big trouble.
