    Default Hello from Richmond, BC

    Hello everybody, nice forum you have here. I had no idea badminton was such a big sport here in the lower mainland.

    I recently started a new job and I am beginning to get to know my coworkers. Yesterday on of 'em asked me if I'd like to join him Tuesday nights for some friendly games at BCIT. The last time I played was way back in grade school over twenty years ago, which I loved. So I'm looking forward to playing again after all these years.

    I need to buy a racket and shoes, and this forum has a ton of info that's helping me decide on what to buy. And there seems to be alot of passionate people on this board too.

    Anyways, nice to meet you all. Hopefully I'll enjoy badminton again like I used to as a kid.

    You are lucky to be in Richmond. I believe it is fertile badminton ground.

    During a recent visit, I took a peek at Clear One and Clear Two badminton clubs. Very nice establishments, if incongruously hidden in an industrial park.
    There was good lighting, the newest equipment for sale, and lessons available. The wall at ClearTwo was even adorned with jerseys signed by professional players.

    (Added bonus: there were huge tracts of blackberries growing wild in the shrubbery behind the parking lot. Mmmmmm.)

    Have fun back in the game.
