    Okay .. let's start now the famous thread "who's going"
    I'm officially going ! after several months waiting desperately :!!

    That will be my first time in Beijing ( well also in Asia lol ), therefore with all new comers to beijing, we should organize something, to enjoy the badminton play firstly but also the city and all its beautiful monuments =)

    okay then .. now i can say i'm IN lol:cool:
    What about you guys ??:rolleyes:

    2008 will be special for us singaporeans. because Aug 9 is our nation birthday. and there will be 2-3 public holidays after that. So many people may take the chance to holiday in beijing. But i cn't cos i'm having big exams too =(

    Same here mate, I'm also looking for a place to play badminton in Beijing. I'm quite familiar with the city, but when it comes down to these things...
    I'm going on my own, parents agreed on it. Just turned 16, and it's kind of a birthday present. I already got a place to stay too, my aunt's house. So if anyone could tell me where it's possible to play badminton then, I'd really appreciate it.

    As a side note, I guess someone is going to organise a BC meeting during the summer of 2008. Either in the OG period, of somewhat around that time :rolleyes: I'll definitely be in then!
