Unless there are a no shows and not enough players, no one wants to give up their play time thus seems an unfriendly situation. For visitors, good luck finding a game if you don't know anyone! There are a few HK forums with games all week but a hassle to teach a visitor how to use them. I hope this forum will help.
    It's true. That's why I find it difficult to introduce anybody from this forum to any of the groups. I have to agree that most of the public courts are very difficult to book. HK badminton has really exploded in popularity after the 2000 Olympics. I guess it's partly because of China's success in the game combined with HK's return to China after 1997. This has given a lot of role models for children to look up to.

    Thank you for that offer.
    As Ar_Dan said, I've left town

    By the way, I did visit a few stores to see if I could find spot some great, overlooked deals. And, yes, I found quite a few... except that they turned out to be great deals for the store

    Incidentally, I did accompany Cheung to a multipurpose gym tucked away at some location I still don't know. That experience was quite the opposite of what I mentioned a while earlier... the players were tireless, outgoing, eager to battle and, most importantly, game-smart!

    And just in case you were too exhausted to walk home, you could borrow one of these - there were quite a few lying around

    Cheung, thanks again for that night out!
