    Ahh, I think I know which one you are Joe. We must do better next year and do a BC Banner! :) I might even play in next year's open if I can get my A into G and train properly...sigh.

    Kwun, I'll wear badminton outfit that shows BC on it if you would like to sponsor me for next year, :D

    Plus no coach accompanying them :eek: The presence of a coach will certainly help to change tactics in the second set.

    Oh well, there's always next year and the year after that. Or maybe I'll be playing in it.

    Indeed I did, actually a few of my friends (Andrew and Andre) pointed you out to me :D

    As soon as I can free up some time I'll get on to encoding the footage I've got and upload them. Problem is I've got 2 toddlers which take up most of my time. :)

    I was in their first year. I used to play reps back in my high school days; Jo Hindley, Rachel's older sister was my mixed partner back then.

    Now I'm married with children, so I take any badminton I can get gratefully. :)
    If anyone is wanting a game of singles, I'm your man!

    I'm A/B at the beginning of the year after all the meals and hollidays, but by mid-year, provided I get enough games, I'll be an A :D

    MUBC eh? I was a committee there a couple of years ago, still a member though... just don't seem to have enough time these days for club days.

    Next year I'm planning to play more, possibly back into reps if all goes according to plan.

    I'm always keen for a game though, we can get a bunch of people together and just play for a couple of hours over the weekend.
