    Imy friend and I are here until Jan. 31 and looking to play, visiting from Canada. He is good he does training back at home, so he's looking for some good competition. If you and your partner like to challenge us, lets setup a game!

    Checking in. Following my previous post, I'm gonna be in Bali (Seminyak area) March 19-31. Hope we can have hits. I'll be monitoring this thread as it gets closer to the date.

    Thank you Petersen. If I got better while over there (balinese massage can do wonders) & can play I shall post.

    Finally found a brilliant COACH (and player)+(mood & patience:) here at Bali. He is located near Ubud (Speak English) already had a group of Germans who was joining in for daily training sessions running over a week, and their improvements stood clear as crystal.
    So for everyone who is going to Bali with a racket in their luggage this is definately a good chance to get some proper coaching, much cheaper than you would ever find in Europe.
    I guess,, you should consider yourself to be,,at least between beginner- internediate and UP

    Welcome to send PM

    Regards Petersen

    Well, I'm back in Australia but we're already planning to go to Bali again next year!

    We're interested in "badminton holiday" so coaching's definitely on the table. Will PM you separately Peterson - thank you for sharing the news.

    Dear Petersen!

    You mentioned that you found a badminton trainer near Ubud-please could you send me the contact?
    I consider to travel next week to Bali (am currently in Yogyakarta) and I'd love to have private training to continue to progress (am playing since 5 years-training 4 times a week and playing little tournaments)

    Thank you very much! :)

    For genuine Yonex equipment, I would suggest Govinda in Denpasar, one of my friends bought an Arcsaber 11 with BG80 for around 150 USD in that shop last week,, it seems be a fair price !

    For places to play> I suggest you read the thread and check out the mentioned places/courts
    I'm in Scandinavia the next couple of months so wont be able to invite you to any badminton battles..

    Will be in Bali 12 to 16 November. Keen to join if there's a spot available.
    I'll be based in Sanur, and normally get around using Taxis - is there an issue with using Taxis to / from the courts in Denpasar like Gelogor Carik?

    raistian here I would suggest Grab or Gojek, many of the drivers use the larger NMAX scooter, it's comfortable and much faster, guess you already know the small streets of Denpasar ,, Cermonies-friday prayer etcetera :) Many of my friends use their drivers when they are in Denpasar and mostly after a few days the driver become a part of the gang ;) if you need to come around on Bali for longer tours I know a great driver I have used for more than 7 years now. 10 hours 60$ included fuel. Same with hotels, villas, fast boats, water sports and much more I have aces to much cheaper domestic prices,, networking you know :cool:

    Thanks Petersen, much appreciated. For the other stuff I think I'm good but will reach out if I need help.

    How often do you play while in Bali? I'm thinking of playing every other day. If there's no one from BC, how easy is it to just pop in & try join a group?

    Also you mentioned that you found a coach based in Ubud. Could you please PM his details? I figure if I cannot find a people to play with I might as well get coaching to get rid of my bad habits :p
