Netasia's Friday Group
It was a bird hall of Eagles, Falcons, Hawks, Robins and Swifts. Surrounded up high by athletes in various poses in their repective sports, these birds of prey as well as of predators were all netted by this Asian of a bespectacled man called Netasia.
He advertised in the BC Forum in January and has now entrapped around 20 of his all too eager shuttlers with his ready-made cage: a 3-court hall tucked away in a little corner in Braddel, the Braddel-Westlake Secondary School. The hall is cosy with its wooden structures and floor, supported by a huge wooden stage as a resting place for tired bodies.
So every Friday evening, these birdmen pay pilgrimage to Bird Hall, led by IT expert, Netasia. Then there is Sealman, an expert in insurance, whose side-benefits include business trips to Jakarta, where he witnessed the Thomas Cup matches last year as well as the Taiwan Open. Among them is Malaysian Kwong, employed by a Singapore Government entity and doing his Phd in cancer research at the NUS. There are a few Indonesians including the ever-popular Iwan and Jurong Twister and his cousin. Mongoose leads the local pack with newcomer Surge and his girlfriend, WhyrlWynd, Jun Wei and others joining in the fun.
Netasia proudly proclaims that about 50% of his team are members of BC as well. Whilst he would like to have more people join him, space and time do not permit. So now he has to be very selective and Kaffie, who showed interest recently, may just about qualify.
I hope the other BC badminton groups in Singapore are as organized as Netasia's team so that the day may come when we can have a BC Singapore Championships. Perhaps Jurong East should be a good candidate for my next visit???
