looking for badminton partner to train with quote:

I'm 21, go to uofc and would like to keep in shape throughout the year, but i need a steady badminton partner, someone who has a passion for the sport. I am planning, later down the road, to join tournaments for "under 23".

So if you go to uofc that would be great, we can play couple times a week at the gym on campus, if not we find a gym (like talisman) we can play during the week & weekends.

experience level does not matter, I'm just an average player, just dabbled in it during high school but thats it. I have always loved the sport but never really had someone else to train with that was as passionate as I was.

thanks!


roger.

Well dude, I play every Wednesday night from 9:30pm-11:00pm at Talisman ($5). We usually have 4-5 players so we play singles or doubles.

Also play on either Sat/Sun morning from 10:30am-12:30pm. Same deal, 4-5 players.

We are average in skill too. Play just to stay in shape and it's semi-competitive. You can come join us if you like. If you can beat us, then you can find a new partner, we understand lol

I played with a guy who competed in Nationals a few weeks back, no chance. Completely schooled us. I have never seen a smash that hard in my life haha

That'll probably be my friends. I'm not very competitive anymore so I don't play with them. They go there quite often so you'll probably see them again

John

I graduated in 2000 and played for Pearson. Went to provincials in grade 11 for doubles. They are doing renos on VLSC right now but when they're done I think I'll get a yearly pass there. I was just going to use it to work out cuz I don't know many ppl that play badminton anymore but if anyone goes there I'd be happy to play.

haha there are so many asians on here!

The big group you saw at talisman are high school kids - some
just graduated, others still in hs. Not all of them go every week
but there's a couple that go every week. Would you say you're
around their level?

the guys got some good steady consistent shots, the girls were pretty good also. I would say I could play a good rally against the guys, winning would be a problem if the game was dragged out as I have horrible endurance now, I can probably do 2-3 good rallies, then slow down and recharge, after losing the next 2-3 points I can go for another 2-3 good rallies HAHA,

i played against an asian guy, around his 30's, he had this amazing backhand drop shot, where it look like he was going to clear it, but actually drop it. Man he worked me hard, I was sweating in no time.

haha, not too old yet!!

yea the new point system is to make games go alittle faster I guess. but I can play either, it doesn't matter, I just want to play!! haha

i go there probably once every two weeks, because of the fact that I have cheap passes that I bought long ago. I have 3 left, so I will continue to go =D, do you know if there are some cheap deals for students there? I know at the UofC campus they charge like 6 dollars per entrance, its pretty good, some good players there also.

The guy I played is skinny, not too skinny, around 5 11'. After a few of those backhand drops I sort of caught on to him.

Hmm, I would play with you, but it's kinda past my prime and I don't play as much anymore.
I occasionally play with a few friends but that's about it.

But, you'll probably see my brother there if you go on Sat, I believe he'll be training there again in the fall. Perhaps you can give him a go?
