Toronto/Richmond Hill, the 14-15
I'm coming to Toronto from the 13-15th, and will be staying in Richmond Hill. I'm an A level junior. I was wondering if there's anyone interested in a few exhibition games or can hook me up with places to play. My club is affiliated with the B&R and Granite, but I a) don't want to venture that far and b) have no white shorts.

Richmond hill is close enough to those clubs I believe...lol maybe 10-20 min drive? Nayways, there's always the Mandarin Badminton club that has a lot of good players, but it's usually quite busy

Well, i would say 20-25 mins driving by highway, and if parking doesnt become a hassle, from RHill to Dtown.
Will ask around mr WW

I'd say come to Mandarin BC located in Markham which isn't that far off from Richmond Hill (I live there myself too). There are 2 courts reserved for the senior team on Wed/Fri from 8-11pm...national juniors training from I think 6-8pm. I think I saw you back at the Toronto Open (if memory serves...I didn't play, just watched). If you come, you will have to pay the guest fee of $10.60(??) and if they ask you which team member signed you in, you can just tell her it's Ken Wu (me). I will only be there on Friday albeit a bit late...not sure if I'll be there on Friday since there's a tournament this weekend at Durham and I don't play on Thursday...maybe someone else might offer to join you on Thursday/Friday?

Just an update,... guest fee at Mandarin now is $12.00 + GST.

Yeah, tomorrow from 8-11 I'd be able to go. And there'd be people for me to hit with? I'm now in Toronto and have computer access, if perhaps you could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org... and possibly with the address of the place?
Thank you so much!!!
And again, if anyone wants to play anyplace during the day on Thursday, let me know!

very unlucky.... even though schools and jobs are closed too much snow to go anywhere.... especially without cars.

Just don't want to make you disappointed by the badminton players in Toronto, if you are interested in drop-in for thursday afternoon 12-2pm at Armadale CC (hope its not too far away from your place, heres the site http://www.markham.ca/markham/channe...dropin_acc.htm ), feel free to give me a PM. Usually in the afternoon session there will be many older but skilled badminton players overthere (I'm not one of those, anyways thats another story... ), hope you gonna enjoy =)

Just wanted to shout out a HUGE thank you to Jason. I had a fantastic, fantastic time playing for six hours today and challenging all those good guys to singles games, heh.
And also thanks to Danny and what's-his-name (started with a V) who were so nice. And of course the 70 year old who a) schooled me and b) coached me well despite a complete lack of english. I forgot his name, too. I'm terrible with names.
Next time I'm in Toronto, I am MOST DEFINITELY coming back!!!! Mandarin is awesome, I wish I had the funds/clientele to start up something like that in Winnipeg!

hello Westwood, I hope you have a wonderful stay at Mandarin BC. Yes, the olded guy was master Liu, he is very deceptive at play, not very powerful but plays very smartly. The younger guy was Vernon, he is a very nice guy too.
Anyhow, you are more than welcome to the Club. Have a nice stay in Toronto.
