    I'll just basically add to the list of compliments. The club's great, the lounge is extremely comfortable and the people there are really nice

    too bad lighting is kinda poor... i hope they get those filters soon.... the bird gets lost in the lights sometimes..... but still decent... nothing is perfect... =)


    guess i won't be there from 10:30-8.... i guess i will be leaving for lunch at around 12:30 and getting back around 3ish..

    been there once on a guest pass

    its quite nice, AC isn't bad, lights are bright, but i guess they'll fix that. good room between courts, mats are brand spanking new. pretty good i'd say

    Hmm... for the price we pay for membership, methinks they should have
    proper changerooms. Right now there are none. It IS a club after all...

    Actually, there is a bench, and even a big mirror too. Well, for the ladies that is...

    You're right... I was just there today and to my pleasant surprise, there
    was a bench and a row of clothes hooks in the men's room! There was
    a sign that said 'Wet Paint' so I figured that they were put in very
    recently. They weren't there Fri last week when I was last there. Thanks
    for the update though. :)

    Sorry to disappoint Cheung about the hen party business. :D

    Ah I see. The sign was on the bench. Maybe it just fell on there.

    the bench was blocking off the shower area, where the wet paint was....cuz if anyone tried to shower, it would have made a mess as well as have made the coat of paint useless :D anywyas when do you usually play ive been trying to figure out whos who ....figured out like nanashi, reaper, jus_nthergirl etc..but...you?...confusesd

    I haven't decided on regular days yet. I usually show up once or twice per
    week on weekdays after 8pm. I normally go to George Brown on Sundays
    but it's closing for a month starting next week, then my membership there
    will be expiring shortly after that so I might go to Mandarin on weekends
    more often. I'm the guy with the dark green Gosen racquet bag. Stop by
    and say hi sometime. :)

    So late??? I usually leave at around 7:30 'cause I'm dead tired from the stupid training. I'm usually there in the day in the lounge playing cards more than badminton :rolleyes: :D

    Yah, unfortunately I have to be at the office during the day. Gotta earn money
    for racquets, feather birdies and club memberships, you know ;) :D. Maybe I
    can make some extra cash on the side playing cards too if you'll teach me
    (j/k). Perhaps we'll run into each other on a weekend sometime.
