Used to go regularly on weekends to CITINEST.
Have been to NGV ,which is near my place.But I could never understand how the booking of the courts work there..They keep on changing the rules and book timings.So finally I lost my interest ,as they ask me to come after sometime whenever I go there to book the court.
But I am GAME if someone can take initiative and arrange some regular Badminton games ..

Thanks Torqy. I have heard about him. The facility was ingurated sometime back I guess, but a bit far away.
As not other option has come up, Citinest and NGV (never been there) looks viable.

I typically look at 10-12 AM timings in the weekends in Citinest. That is when it is easy to get bookings there, is it okay?. Evenings are members only. If we have any members who could take us along on any other places, do share?

Thank you kaushik_s, PatienceWins, nemo, torqy, roopakr, CorsaLove for showing interest. Thats a handy group already.

Let me try today if I can book for the weekend. But I doubt we would be able to get a slot. Normally it would be fully booked by mid week. Any way I will check andlet you know. I think I do have some shuttle in stock.

Best regards

Default Are you ready?

Okay, here is the plan. We are meeting at Citinest on 5th July from 1 PM to 3 PM. That is 2 hours and one court.

Folks who wish to join could PM me and deepug with your phone nos, so that we could keep you posted on the schedule.

The place is flexible on dress code, but here is the boundary of flexibility (deepug/roopakr, correct me if I am wrong)

1) T shirts with track pants or shorts is okay
2) Nothing with Jeans cloth
3) Canvas shoes (with rubber sole?)
4) Bring own Racquets please. Some people get personal about it and might not be willing to share (I am one of them)

I'm sorry the time is a bit inconvenient. That is the best we could manage at the moment.

Mods, update the thread title, please?

People are talking about 200+kph smashes here . Good one though.

Anyone near Banashankari/Padmanabhanagar interested? I am looking for one too. I used to play in my college days and I loved that sport.
