errr... Not even.

I'm friends with people that are really good in the badminton field, and I can say for a fact, they regard Eric Yen, the one who was partners with David L. for the tournament you posted, was one of the best in BC... David L played with him for the tournament and won was because no one else was playing... Otherwise, David L. alone would not make it.

I play badminton, although not in years. I would actually like to play again. Where can I go for some drop in play at, lets say, a low-medium intermediate level?

Also, is there any drop in on weekends during the day, so that I can still go out at night ?

Is there anything in the Surrey area? How much do these places usually charge?

I have a net setup in my backyard during summer, but it's just not the same as playing against some good competition in a gym.

I still play once in a while at a surrey rec center.

Some gyms are absolutely horrid, especially if youre given a high shot, look up and get totally blinded. Missed a hell of a lot of easy kills because of that...

at C1 there are certain places where the birdie is at.. and it'd be like a blind spot.. look up and go 'where the hell is it??' then the birdie falls on the floor..

does the rec centre have the indoor court mats or is it on like a gymnasium type waxed floor?

that is a really general statement..which I don't agree with. badminton requires you to have strength in different areas of your body incomparison to tennis.

feel free to come out and play to determine for yourself though, whether your statement is true.
