Our First Night at the New Venue

Hi all,

Well, after almost 10 years, we have played our first session at a new venue, and do you know what? I think it was pretty good J.

But I’m just one person. What do you think? If you played at Botany last night, let me know what YOU thought.

I received various comments last night, mostly positive, but the most asked question was “are the courts smaller”? Personally, I doubt it, but I don’t know for sure. A couple of our members also play at Tempe on other days – maybe one of them could measure and compare the court sizes? Regardless, the Botany courts will be based on international badminton standards.

Personally, getting used to the non-slip surface was hardest for me, but I got used to it by the end of the night. And I guess other people found other things a bit different.

But like anything, we will all get used to the differences and adapt. The important thing is that we now have a long term booking for Monday nights only, so no more Sundays. And, no more netballers, volleyball or soccer lines, nets, or clashes J.

Anyway, fell free to respond to this email with your thoughts, comments or suggestions.

Cheers for now,


Sydney Shuttles Badminton Club
