    Default Place to play for a day in Surrey

    Hey folks

    I have a conference to go to the weekend of April 11-13th in Vancouver at the Delta Vancouver Airport Hotel but I'm staying in Surrey I believe....

    My gf isn't gonna like this (she's coming too) but I was wondering if there's any place I may be able to sneak into to go hit a few birds in the Surrey area?
    I'm looking mainly for the Saturday night, maybe even early morning Saturday

    Once I get more details on where I'm staying in Surrey, I'll post them

    Thanks

    Saturday - drop by Guildford Rec Center - on 152 St and 105 Ave. They have a Sat. evening drop-in from 6:15 - 8 pm. Play is quite good, even caliber on Saturday nights. ONly problem - you have to sign up mid-afternoon sometimes to ensure you get your spot reserved.

    Early morning, we run the junior practice sessions, but depending on the attendance and gym use we sometimes use the gym until 12. It's hit or miss here on this one.

    An idea - why don't you try the VRC on Saturday night? PeteLSD, WWC, Viver, Timeless and others could show up and play there?

    Wow...signing up...I haven't done that in forever....

    Is there a place where I'm not gonna feel like an outcast and have everyone ignore my presence cause I'm new to the club, even if it is just for one night???

    I'll look into the VRC but I'm unsure about the Guilford....
    Any other places where I don't have to go through this sign up stuff?? No place where I just show up and relax and have a few competitive games?

    Guildford is not bad, just busy and sometimes there is wait list. Just a precaution since you might want to plan ahead for this center. Guldford is quite close, but most players do play plastic there.

    VRC allows guests to sign-in with members. Myself, PeteLSD, Timeless and a few others could sign you in. The VRC is 30 or so minutes from Surrey - depending on which part of Surrey you are staying in. Let me know your area, I can pick you up or meet up and go together if you like. I'm in the North Surrey area.

    The Delta Vancouver Airport Hotel is in Richmond and depending on where you stay in Surrey, you could be looking at 30 minutes or more of commuting.

    As for playing, as Badrad eluded to, it's better to play Sat. evening at the VRC. I will booked that Sat to play then. We can play until we drop

    W00t!

    Sounds like a lot of fun being planned here!
    I'll definitely be there (VRC) to play. With this many confirming to be there, it should be no problem getting signed in.

    The hotels in Richmond must be really packed for you to be staying way out in Surrey. Even staying in Burnaby could shave off 15-20min+ of commuting. But anyway, we're going to have a blast next Saturday!

    This is great....so far we have: PeteLSD, WWC, Viver, Timeless, Badrad, Winex West Can, and myself
    I expected maybe two people I could meet. Now it's a whole family of players!!!

    My gf has given me the ok to play on Saturday But, I told her it's cause you guys are all going to bring us out to a really good Chinese Restaurant after and have some great Post badminton Grub

    I'm stayin in Surrey because my gf has relatives there....so it's cheaper than staying in a hotel...

    I'm gonna need to ask another favor though....
    I just sold my TI-10's and don't think I'll be able to pick up another racquet before I leave...anyone have a racquet I may be able to borrow for that night???
    I still have a Victor AL-9400 but I don't think it will help me to keep up with you guys.
    I'll still bring it anyway

    I want to thank all of ya for making a fellow badminton forumer welcome in a new place.

    Txyu,
    Don't worry about racquets. This would be a good opportunity for you to try out the Winex racquets

    Dropsmash,
    Drop-in fees is $10 for the whole day and you have to supply your own feather shuttles. There are guest passes for $6.50 (in books of ten).

    hehehe...Winex...I knew you were going to say that

    If I find one that I like, I may buy it since I'm in the market for a new one....

    and since I'm new and visiting, I should be able to qualify for a 50% discount right???

    The sign of a great salesman - always selling! Hahahahah.
    Hey Winex - TXYU - why don't you play for the discount? The percentage score difference will be the price TXYU pays? Let's say maybe divide by half, so if max score 15-0 - max discount is 50% (100/2)?
