    Out of interest, how good are you?

    School level?
    University team? (which one )
    local league? Division
    County league? Division
    Any better than that ?

    Default Level of play

    Thanks for replying Cheung,

    I guess I am an average player, skill wise. I have never learnt badminton properly, and so in this respect am still a beginner.

    I play regardless of tactics, strategy and technique, but with plenty of enthusiasm and passion. I just play because I enjoy it! I played university badminton (2nd) whilst the club was still active and play at league clubs every now and then.

    I could benefit from coaching, more practise and frequent playing but I am sure you realise how much this can take up your finances and time for a student. Coaching rates are 20 GBP per hour!

    I had a few people tell me that I had potential, but needed some formal training. I am hoing to learn a lot from watching and playing in Hong Kong as the enthusiasm and professionalism is much greater than here in the UK.

    I Hope I havn't put off any people from inviting me

    I am primarily staying at relatives in Tai Po, NT. Travelling is not much of an issue, as HK is much smaller than UK or is it?

    Tai Po....centre of the Universe!

    Use the search function and put in 'Tai Po'. I wrote about it sometime before.

    So your Uni badminton club folded up?

    HI,

    I transfered to a different course at a different Uni

    The course is great (BA Digital Arts) but there is no club here. No courts on campus, no one wants to play anyway...sigh Even the chinese society in the uni is underground. It is meant to exist, but I can't find anyone who knows. The address is some broom cupboard in some abandoned section of the campus

    Recently I started playing at some clubs who play league in the West London area.

    As to Tai Po is the center of the universe I know my way to the 2 main McD, so I won't starve

    My Chinese is not too hot so I think I would rarely catch the bus. Same goes for Taxi as they could be taking me for a ride. Best to stick to the relatively safe MTR and KCR then?

    Anyone wanna invite me to have a game? What is your level of play Cheung? I remembered u used to study in UK? but don't really know any more.

    By the way, I met the Hong Kong team baddie team after the All England. I was at a restaurant and that Indo guy (Smaller in real life) and is it something Wang or Chen (so sorry) and a fat man came in. I presume he was the coach, very dark tanned and loud, but very authoritative. And then a group of loud elder chinese people came in...I have no idea who they where. They could have been legends. I was so gutted I didn't have a camera.

    They didn't eat much tho...me and my friend ate more than the 3 of them put together! The girl was cute, she smiled at me and I even talked to her (ask her to pass chilli sauce!). Forgot to share the story tim!

    Wizbit, you can go to see the cute girl in HK again!!

    Just go to the Sports Institute where the HK team train. Don't ask me for an introduction. You seem to have enough natural charm yourself.

    Let me guess, if you are in West London, your Uni is TV Uni?

    Contact me via Private Messgaes me for more details...

    Default Invitation taken!

    Hehe, thanks for the invite Pete! I'm not sure where you play and how to get there...

    Cheung - yes and no, It's LCMM london college of music and media to give it's full name and shares a site with TVU. New instituition so hence no sports halls..

    I doubt the cute girl remembers me...but I remembered what she ate and no, I didn't lick her dish clean afterwards . Just out of curiosity, what was her name? If I am not wrong, one guy who is representing Hk is from Indonesia and one girl is from China. How do they all communicate? They spoke cantonese but very rudimentary one word answers and spoke only when addressing the coach (presumed coach, as he could be a father...I dunno).

    By the way, do you guys have spare rackets?

    Wizbit, not sure about the small Indo guy. You must be pretty tall yourself then.

    So you must have met Wang Chen and either Agus or Albertus. Besides the dish, did you lick anywhere else (oh, just being curious )?
