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.

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.
- Keep your valuables as close to you as possible.Avoid pile-ups of bags and clutter
- Avoid near public access ways.
- If possible only bring minimal money, cards, jewelry etc.
- 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...
- If it is a common group, help each other by buddy watching.

How about the gyms start putting in security cameras?
Btw, i think a carton of feathered birds is more attractive than cellphone
