What we're about

A group for people living in Thailand who want to meet play some recreational (or possibly competitive) badminton. There's tons of courts around the city. With just four or more people we can get a great doubles meetup going. All levels welcome. The founder of this group is low-intermediate to intermediate at best!!

3. We kinda have one price policy. So same price regardless of coming late or leaving early
4. We don't really have rules. Use your own judgment if you should go in the court or let other people play
5. If you have any problem, don't hesitate to talk to the hosts. We're open-minded and nice (at least most of the time)

However, there are some occasions people are too tired to play or sometimes they are not ready (warming up or changing clothes), leaving the court empty, then you ALLOW to enjoy two games in a row. Before doing that, kindly asks around. Hosts reserve the right to arrange games (rarely) and players as we see fit. But we will try not to, we want everyone to enjoy the game and meet new people.

The 3R's of Safe Play. Review, recharge and relax.
Review - What is my skill level? What is my partner's skill level?
• Is he/she better than me or weaker, maybe my partner can receive hard shots and smashes, or maybe I can, let your partner know your ability.
• What is my partner doing during the play? Where does he/she usually stand? Too close to you?
• Are you running all over the place? Double games are all about positioning, put yourself at the right place at the right time. This can help reduce body contact.
• What is the optimal position that I should stand, so I won't be too close to my partner?
• What skills are my opponents? Are they defensive or offensive players? If offensive you might want to stand in front of the net and let your partner cover the back.
• Should I take this shot or better for my partner to receive this shot?

Recharge - Badminton can be very exhausting on the body, if you have had too many games take time out. Recharge yourself a bit. There are always better games ahead.

Relax - Games can be competitive at times but at the end of the day, it's only a game. We want everyone to come and have fun. The best wealth is good health. So relax, if your partner makes a lot of mistakes, do take it easy.
Cheers,
