    Do you mean a club exclusively for chinese people? I think a club like that doesn't exist in a multicultural society:)

    Try Hendon or Kingston which have groups of people largely comprised of (but not exclusively) people of chinese ethnic origin. What level do you play at?

    Hey,

    Yeah there's a huge one here in Milton Keynes,
    We have over 50 people of all ages and abilities playing.

    There's a smaller but better one in Cambridge, and an equally good (dare I say) one in Oxford :) But We are all mainland Chinese.

    There are Chinese based "social" Badinton clubs with varyng standards around London.

    Hendon College, Sobells (Finsbury park), Bacon's College (Surrey Quays), Old street,
    waterfront leisure centre (Greenwich).

    You've just got to ask around.

    Why does it have to be exclusively Chinese out of interest?

    Chinese club at Oxford

    Yes, there is a social club mainly Chinese players in Oxford. But we do mixed with others, and it is kind of fun to hear shouts of all lauguages once the game gets tight.

    If you are around in Oxford, and look for a game or two, email me @ xuguang_liu@hotmail.com, I will try to make some arrangement.

    its an invitation club of 9 members currently, becuase we like even games, and lots of time on the 2 courts. there are quite a few social clubs here in cambridge, and if your brother is going to the cambridge uni, each college has its own club (varying standards) and there is a university team is he is good. otherwise, there are some competitive leagues as well:)

    lots of places to play if you are really good...difficult if you are good, but not good enough to play competitively

    As far as I know, at the moment the people in charge of organising it this year is still working on getting sponsorship. It seems to me that it could be a while before the dates are set.

    Will you take part in the matches?

    The Oxbridge match is a team event of 5 doubles, sometimes including a lady's or mixed double match. It started from 1995 and so far Cambridge is leading 6:2. Normally you have to live and play in Oxford or Cambridge and there usual is a selection for each team locally.

    As individual events, there is an Oxford Open of men's doubles before Xmas, and a Southampton Open of all doubles in Feb., both events may be kept as an annual ones.

    As far as I know there are hundreds of Chinese play regularly in England, and I wish there are more tournaments organised.

    Badminton

    Hi I was wandering if there were any good chinese badminton players in essex and if they would ever like to arrange a game, because I always heard that chinese people are good at badmintons and I was wandering the extent of how good is good that how you would be a pro?


    Aways if any chinese peoples or person would like to arrange a game sometime please dont hesitate, I would classify myself as an average player...


    Reply anyone?:D

    Clubs Around East London??

    Does anyone know of any good clubs to go to (doesnt hav to be chinese).

    Reason being, there are clubs which are unfriendly/making u feel uninvited if u dont play to their standards.

    Anyway, any replies for generous clubs will do. I probably say im an average player.

    Cheers
