February 24, 2009

this week's schedule

 Friday 7-10:30pm recreational play
 Sunday: 4:30-7:30pm recreational play

A few things to note:
 1. Our courts technically should be set up at 6pm on Friday, but it was scheduled as "badminton class cancelled." I probably won't be there early enough to clear up any misunderstandings so come at your own risk. If I get confirmation, I'll send another e-mail out for those of you wanting to play earlier.

2. Please bring your own shuttles if you have them. NYU's supply is fairly low and another order won't go out until summer.

3. On Sunday, I will be with the team in Philly for a match against Drexel, UPenn and Bryn Mawr so definitely bring your own shuttles if you plan on playing Sunday.

4. To minimize court wait times, I highly encourage non-team members to play Sunday, as more team members will probably show up Friday for some last minute practice before their tournament.

save the date!

Hi Everyone. We're trying to plan an NYU only tournament. It'll be tentatively Saturday April 4th (but may be changed to Friday evening and Sunday if we can't get the date). So save the weekend and start thinking about partners!  See below for a message from tournament organizers, Fabrice and Winnie.
