    Sounds like you played at Kingsway Gerry as that is one of the few places in Perth that has 10 courts. Depending on when you played, the standard there varies. Should have asked to play against Julian (he works at the badminton shop there and is one of our better state players).

    Beer - You need to try the James Boag Lager (even though it's from
    Tasmania) and a Redback with a slice of lemon Cheung.

    Hay street is smack bang in the middle of town.

    Hmm James Boag, say what you like about Tasmanians, but damn they make good beer.

    Redback, not bad, slice of lemon, what the?

    I think the UWA club is fairly close to Perth Cheung. Kingsway (Badminton WA headquarters) and Duncraig where I play is about 25 minutes North on the Freeway so you would need a car unless you want to risk public transport in WA (not recommended as you want to risk spending hours waiting for a bus). I think all these clubs have fairly strong players on a Wednesday night.

    Slice of lemon in the redback as that will take out some of the bite associated with malt beer!

    Hmm, time looks to be difficult for me.

    Looks like all my free time is being taken up even before arriving. Lack of car is another problem.

    Oh well, guess that's how it goes sometimes.

    Thanks for all the information.

    Unfortunately, wasn't able to even think about play whilst in Perth.
    Perth was a nice change from HK. The weather was nice and comfortable.
    There were a number of pesky flies when we visited the zoo - then our tour guide, "Today is a good day. There are more in summer!".
