    MISSING 2 BADMINTON RACQUETS: I'm missing two of my Yonex Nanospeed 500 badminton racquets. I lent the racquets out for our Sporta outdoor badminton and BBQ event on Saturday, August 23 at Strathcona Park.

    1. The first badminton racquet I lost is a black and gold Yonex Nanospeed 500. It has a large, red "S" Sporta logo on the white strings and a black overgrip handle.

    2. The second badminton racquet is a blue Yonex Nanospeed 500 with the original red YY Yonex logo on the white strings and a black overgrip handle.

    If anyone has seen any of these racquets or know someone who was using it, please contact Derin by text or phone at (778) 712-7788.

    Otherwise, you can let one of my event hosts such as Esteban, Keo, Sebastien or Bailey know if you have any information. Thank you!

    A big thank you to everyone who made it to our Sporta Tennis and Badminton Club fundraiser BBQ, sports and potluck party!

    Special thanks to Esteban, Asuka, Keo, Yuki, Marco, Leopoldo, Ji Han, Yuma, Katie, Arthur, Shin, Chris, Mina, Mayuko, Jessica, Sebastien, and many others for their help, volunteering and support!

    Some people had to work and leave early or arrive late, go to birthday parties or some other functions. Yet, I'm happy that they still came by to say hi and hang out for a while! We had people coming and going throughout the day.

    Most of the members of my Vancouver Tennis Club and Badminton Club are Canadians and native English speakers. It was a great chance for all the students to practice their English speaking and listening skills.

    We had people playing tennis at the courts throughout the day, badminton, hanging out and meeting new friends, practicing English and having fun.

    I can give a 20% student discount to everyone in this group. So it's only $20 for the seafood/steak BBQ instead of $25.

    We're am adding some games and prizes for everyone attending such as t-shirts and gift vouchers. We'll have a mini badminton tournament for players of all levels (beginners to advanced), basketball shooting, etc. Feel free to send me your suggestions or ideas.
