Another place to play at
All information can be found at http://www.gesports.com.sg/services_2abfc.htm.
Venue: Maris Stella High School (Primary School Hall)
Entrance: Via Mount Vernon Road through Maris Stella High School (Secondary)
Days: Tuesdays and Fridays
Time: 7pm to 9:30pm
Shuttles are provided.
Note: If you're late, (later than 7:30pm), the secondary school gate will be closed. If so, please call 9819 5822 and tell Coach Gong to open the gate. Then, I will probably be the one runner up the slope from the Primary School Hall to the Secondary School, opening the gate for you. -_-"
A whole night of sweat is guaranteed. Coaches and Student helpers will be present (to ensure that you run after the shuttle :P). For more information, contact Coach Gong (9819 5822) or visit www.gesports.com.sg. Thank you!

Hey MSHSBadmPlayer, was great playing with you and the others last night!
Thank you for being merciful as well! Appreciate that! Please continue giving me pointers by the way :P
As for costing, I gather that they encourage regular playing hence the $20/session if you are an ad-hoc player.
Go for a trial session and decide for yourself the worth of it all, a lot of things in life cannot be measure in monetary terms Gee... sounding so old!!!!

Place To Play
In Singapore, if you are anywhere near Bukit Timah, you could go to the Assumption Boys School on Upper Bukit Timah Road (it's next to the Cashew Road turn-off). Taxi drivers know this place better as 'Boys Town'.
There are 6 courts inside (the Vincent Hall) and they play everyday. The best time is from 6pm to 10pm. The level of play ranges from intermediate to advanced.
The sessions are managed by Tang Eng Han, a former Singapore national player. If ever there was someone with the right blend of skill and humility, Han is the guy.
Give him a call or send him an SMS (mobile: 9238 7689) and he will give you directions and tell you how you can join the game.
The shuttles are free (and they're high quality too) and an evening's play would cost you around S$5 to S$8 depending on how long you play. You could also book time on a monthly basis (although they might all be taken at the moment).
If you do join, look me up - I play occasionally (on Saturdays).

Oldhand! What a great source of information! Thank you!
Strictly intermediate and above? Or should I go for a trial session for the other players' assessment? Asking because have only been playing a year +
