    Hi everyone!

    I'm Mont. I recently moved near the UofT Scarborough area and I am looking for fellow badminton players and people to meet.

    I used to go to Commander Badminton club, but I find the Pan Am centre is closer and drop-in rate is cheaper.

    There are plenty of nets for play but hardly enough players. Most of the time it is pretty empty and people end up playing singles, especially on the weekends.

    If you are interested in playing, give me a shout! All levels are welcome. Male/Female/Dog/Cat, if you have arms and can hold a racquet, you will do!

    Here is a few details about me:

    Playing level:
    Intermediate (can compete with advanced level on a good day), very patient with lower level players
    I have been playing for 1.5 years and have improved quickly.

    Favourite shows: Game of Thrones, The Flash, and a variety of different anime. Occasionally, I watch the odd bollywood movie. Who hasn't?
    Age: I am in my mid-20s.

    Hey Dave, good hearing from you. On week days it depends. Some days there's decent turnout, on others it's empty. It's never really crowded. Always good to bring a partner if you're dropping in. I'm unavailable until late December due to exams.

    I have gone back to Commander as there usually not enough players in the Pan Am. Let me know if you would like to join us at the drop in at Commander.
