    Default Hello from Newark, CA

    Hi all,

    I'm from Newark, CA. I used to play back in highschool (Pioneer High, South San Jose). Took a long break from the sport and now getting back in again. I usually play at UBC or Z.

    Hello ncloud,

    Good to know that I'm not the only one who's getting back into the sport. I haven't played at those clubs yet.

    Have fun here at badminton central.

    From the SJ side you probably play more at Bintang or Smash City? I venture south from time to time.

    Yes and no, I don't really have money to play open gym so I rarely do. I only play if people ask me to come out to play and I know I'll get some good games in.

    By the way, you should sign up for the Santa Teresa doubles tournament. I think it would be fun to see other BC people play.

    Default ^^Just like me..^^

    ..hah, reminds me of myself when i re-started playing again about, oh say, 7+ yrs ago...All the forms, strokes, timing were off...But they'll come back eventually; at least your break wasn't as long as mine...
    Sometimes we wonder, at least myself, how much better would we be if we had continued to play??..

    most of my arm strength and coordination sorta came back by now. But endurance is another story. I can play may be like three full blown games top. After that the fuel just sorta run out. Perhaps not being a highschool teenager anymore have something to do with it
