Default Great Break!!

WhiteKnight, deepug, a friend of deepug and I met today and played badminton from 1 to 3. It was a good test of my stamina and I look forward to more games with these great guys.

I am posting a picture of three of us posing infront of deepug's awesome Optra Magnum. The stock interiors are great.

Ha! there is a pic already?

Special thanks to deepug for being the host.

I reached Citinest at 1 PM sharp and called deepug. Our man was already there warming up. After a small intro, we entered the ring did a warm up session for couple of minutes. This was indeed a bad idea, as many parts of my body (existence of which I was not known) started protesting. We soon bundled ourselves out waiting for other folks to arrive.

My frined and PatienceWins soon arrived, and we kicked off the Baddie meet officially. Deepug did the honours of being the first one to serve-and the first to score too!!

For the first hour we spend more time on court and next hour, more time off it. Two hours of baddie (with lots of breaks) made us aware that our best days are not yet over. Let's do it next week, this time 10 min please?

Now for the official photoshoot. Our cars were scattered, so we decide to take photos infront of the most powerful, biggest and the best looking? (naeee-mine is better ), one-The Optra Magnum.

Nice to meet you guys, and thanks for the great time!! Lets keep this going

I will be there next Saturday unless I am upgrading the ICE next week - I need to get the courier from Delhi. Most probably the upgrade would not happen this weekend.

Looking forward to the next meet.

Thanks for a good time guys. Nice to meet you all. As expected 2 hours took it's toll. Couldnt move the entire evening and think it's high time we execise our over rested bodies more often.

Looking forward to the next week.

Default Good indoor stadium near ITPL

Folks,

For a few months now, we have been having Badminton sessions over weekends, followed by chill out sessions.

We recently came across a good facility near ITPL. This one is run by G Shivakumar, who is a well know Badminton coach, with lot of passion for the sports.

The stadium is on Varthur road, about 500m after Kundalahally Jn if you are coming from Marathahally. Check this out if you stay nearby.

Thats cool WhiteKnight. These days, I play with a friend of mine at NGV on sundays. Let me know of you if you guys play on saturdays, and I can also drop by sometimes

Also, anyone interested to play b/w 4-5pm at NGVs on sundays, let me know.
