    Wow, in that last video of the doubles game, you are playing like professionals... :cool:
    ..... those professionals who recently had a game with no more than 4 strokes per rally! ;)

    I should have sent an invite to him, was talking to his father this evening.

    P.s. Bring an old cloth and a bit of water, hlc never clean their fricking floors and it's very slippery. .

    LOL, I don't mind admitting that I play much worse! :) Where I'm from, a light-hearted insult is a way of saying 'thanks for sharing'. No offense was meant. Cheers. :)

    No problem! ;)

    Update 3/8/12

    I met up with ctjcad last night to visit the venue and pay for the courts. So now all we need are attendees and shuttles! As a heads up, it is looking at around £10/person at the moment but will depend on the final numbers and cost of shuttles etc.

    Can anyone with feather shuttles let ctjcad or myself know ASAP please. We will probably need 3-5 tubes.

    By my count, we're up to about 17-18 people which is great but would be nice if we can get 5-10 more people to make it even better! The more the merrier! ;)

    As previously mentioned, the nearest Underground/Train station is Harrow and Wealdstone (Bakerloo Line) this is only a 5-10min walk from Harrow Leisure Centre.

    If you need to take a bus from another local station, take a look at this page for bus maps:

    http://www.tfl.gov.uk/gettingaround/maps/buses/harrow.aspx

    Alternatively if you're really stuck, call the London Travel Information Helpline - 0843 222 1234
    (there is a charge for the call). They will give you the best travel options for getting around London.

    Unfortunately it looks unlikely that I'll be able to give anyone a lift at the moment - I don't want tell anyone I can then say no at the last minute.

    Again, we urgently need some shuttles please advise if you can supply any!

    This is turning out to be a great meet! Looking forward to meeting you all there! :)
