Thank your feedback. Just FYI there were 18 people in the training program and 8 people are waiting for open play and another 8 playing. There were 2 courts available and it should be enough to accommodate open play for 16 people. The mistake was the tag board was not used for open play during that time so there is no rotation. We'll keep an eye on this so tag board will be used for open play next time. The number of people waiting for courts grows only after 7:15 or so. We are pretty much at the tail end of the program.
We will off course adjust the number of courts for training depending on how many people shows up for the training program. We will adjust the court availability between open play and training as the situation arise. With 18 people shows up, we will need to use at least 3 courts.
We appreciate your feedback. I am not sure what has been agreed on but the information about the new S2S fees, schedule and the program has been communicated before the end of last year. So $8 admission fee shouldn't be a surprise. There is $25/mo membership if one is interested to join. That should put your cost back to what it was before if not cheaper. It will take couple of iteration before a pattern firmly will develop.
In the spirit of NOT creating another argument. I will not going to respond to your last email.
Feel free to reach out to me, Joel, Bernard and Jane if you have any question about the scheduling and program.
There will be mistake that we made along the way and we are sorry about that and we will do the best we can to make it better. However, the training is provided as a benefit for anyone who become a member of S2S. So far we are very excited with number of people interested to the program and hopefully we can help improve everyone badminton skill. We are hoping when the next local tournament is available, we will have more local people competing in it.
Is this program perfect? Will everybody happy with this arrangement? I am very sure the answer is NO. I am also very sure the answer will always be NO. Some will value this program and some doesn't. One thing I can say, we are committed to provide this program year around as we believe it is the only effective way to get better. We will also try to accommodate everyone aspiration to play badminton.
