Hi badminton enthusiasts out there. We are the fanatics that play at Toa Payoh Sports Hall everyday mondays to fridays from 3pm to 6pm. We have about 20 regular members and are looking for max 5 new players to spice up the game here. To enjoy the games here, you should ideally be already good in badminton or at least of intermediate-advanced level. If you can come only now and then but plays a good game, we welcome you too (lets not talk money and costs etc ) For enquiries call me at 96396168 (Chew) for a quick response. Sorry for any slow email response

hi mr chew, it's me just a suggestion from me but it's your call.
i think lately the group size is quite big, is it ok to increase to
3 courts. i do understand it's difficult to get courts but if it's
available,another court will be good.just a feedback.i do enjoy
the game with you guys and costs to me is not a problem.
u have done a good job mr chew to accommodate guest player
like me and many others. thk u very much and hope to see you again
at aviva next year.

As you know we usually have 2 courts for 3 hours each making a total of 6 hours of playtime. This can accommodate 18 players easily each having at least 2 good games old format 15 points system. On days when more players arrived such as today when we have 25 players we did have 3 courts at certain times. By 530pm nobody has the stamina to continue anymore. Number of courts is not an issue as we play in the afternoons and face less competition in court booking. Having quality players is more important so that there is more choice in opponents. Tks for your support all these while.

The word 'fanatics' gladdens my heart.
It's nice to know I'm in large company

Monday to Friday = must work to eat!
All the best to you and your group

Chew just my opinion but i think you better inform interested players here that your group level is not bad. Those not up to standard may go there and have a terrible time. But if there are even better players joining then thats even better. Then i will have more reasons to join u guys lolz

Tks for your suggestion. I usually ask those interested to call me first before they come so that I can assess their current standard of play . If they are not suitable I can refer them to other places elsewhere where the play is not so demanding. Although we have about 25 players about 40% are advanced players and the rest mainly of intermediate level. Of course there will be one or two uncles whose standard of play are lower but then they are founding members who have been playing here 10 over years ago.
Just today we had 24 players playing this afternoon and Lin Mu joined us. As you can guess, his standard is too good and fast for our players to handle. Luckily Setia and gang were playing next court (Monfort 1st doubles as well as Ricky) so Lin Mu got a good workout too. We were treated to a good display of Indonesian and Chinese skills playing in partnership. There was mutual respect for one anothers skill
Although we have a good group of players now you know every year you are one year older and your speed will naturally slow down as well. It is important to have new blood so that even if we can no longer play a decent game we still enjoy coming down to Toa Payoh watching our new group of players playing at advanced level.
If you happen to be around Toa Payoh do drop by. I will try to arrange a good game for you

well done to mr chew and chris, job well done. dr yap and partner got
thrashed. before the game dr yap's partner came to me and said he
has got nothing to lose, after saying that i know he already lost the
battle before he even started the game. he was a nervous wreck
thru out. now hl tan got to eat his words. i truly enjoyed the demolition
job by u and chris looking forward to more of this high end matches.
