    Hi Everyone!
    I'm moving to Brunei in August and I'm looking for somewhere to play - does anyone know and clubs or groups I could join? I'll be based in Bandar Seri Begawan, but I don't mind travelling a bit if I need to!
    Thanks!

    Forgot to say, I'm a decent club playe standard, but I'm more than willing to play with groups of any standard!

    Hello, I'm looking to play badminton with anyone from Brunei. I can play at Bandar or KB but preferably at KB. See my profile at the information tab if u guys want to know my badminton preferences.

    It's truly really hard to find badminton players here, hope i can receive some response here :):)

    Good luck on finding locals to play with. I recommend you to search on other social media as well. I'm still unable to find people to play with even though my post was made a long time ago.

    Word of mouth, ask friends/work colleagues for introduction, visit some courts and ask people.

    Sometimes traditional techniques like talking to people need to be used.

    Azmi/Aliana,
    Dewan Pandan in KB is open for everyone. They play on Mondays~ Wednesday, Friday~ Sunday. With 2 sessions ie. 2 groups. The afternoon groups and the night time group. Both groups are of decent to highly experienced players (ex-district players, frequent tournament players).

    I've been there with my friends and it is a good place to play but it is always crowded and my friends and I actually want to play casually and sometimes we don't keep up with our point. Sooo...

    But yeah if anyone want to play at Dewan Pandan can also since there are many local playing there looking for a good game but maybe not for beginner because I did play once or twice and doesn't seem like they was having fun playing with me and my friends since we're like normal players i guess.
