    Really? You play at Village Square Leisure Center? (Me and my friends like to call it LC) I play there every few fridays from about 5pm-10pm, its basically the only place we go, since we live 5-10 minutes away from it...

    By the way, do you go to the school across from LC? :rolleyes:

    Yes it is quite crowded, by me and my friends pretty much know 72% of all the people that play badminton there so on fridays we always have little wait time before we play, we practically own 3 of the courts, lol. Sometimes more, if we go there early, and on fridays my school lets us off at 2, so thats another reason we go on fridays :D.

    The bald Indian guy at U of C is Sarosh Wadia. I play against him whenever I can make it in ( usually Friday nights). I like U of C more than Hillhurst as not many play feather at Hillhurst and the concrete floor kills my knees.

    I'm the big ugly white guy with the massive backhand and big boomer of a smash.

    LOL, your name gave yourself away enough already. What nights do you play at strathmore? Still playing with 17 to 18 lbs tension string?

    I think there are couple of groups at hillhurst that play feather now. I joined U of C for this fall session for a change of scene.

    Strathmore club is in hiatus until we can secure the gym again ( usually thursdays nights) though Kenton ( the guy who coaches the high school team out my way) is having open gym one or two nights a week this month.

    Funny everyone thinks I still string my raquets really low, but I've been playing with 21-22 pounds for about five years, though I tend to stretch the strings pretty quickly. (gee I wonder why)

    That new Kevlar 7 I was trying out I had strung at 25 pounds, but I just couldn't control the damned thing. Ryan (Legere) took one swing with it and said " nice raquet, but ain't for you"

    Turns out he's right - went back to my old Forza 9000 and started hitting bombs again.

    Now I'm thinking I should know who you is,cooler.

    By the way the Strathmore team tounrey is March 11 and 12th, 2005.

    Hey there,

    I just moved to Calgary and am looking for a good environment to play in. I dislike players who think they are elite.

    Basically just looking for fun friendly players and don't mind a little bit of friendly competition as well.

    Is there any badminton clubs located downtown? or possibly near 17st,17thave.

    Thanks for any help in advance.
