Smashing Day

Because it’s the start of the year, I make a long list of resolutions — at least in my mind. To make things simple and doable, I just promised myself I’d like to get back to some sport activities.

Today, my husband dragged me to badminton. Badminton was the farthest thing on my mind as I wanted to go biking. So anyway after frantically looking for our rackets (Ummm…yup, it’s been a while), we headed to the courts. It was a good day to smash something.

There’s not a whole lot of options for badminton courts in our area, so was pretty surprised a new one opened. And this one is so darn hard to find.

Had we not joined our group to get here, we would have some trouble finding the place.

The place has 10 courts and is open from Tuesday till Sunday from 8 am till 4 pm.

We arrived past 9 am and half the place was filled. Good thing the place wasn’t filled up because it was quite warm.  I can’t imagine how it would be during summer months.

The clincher? Players can only wear gum sole shoes. So we ended with:

Yup, gum sole shoes being sold conveniently at the courts as well. 😛 For 160,000 VND (~8 USD), the fit wasn’t too bad.

Court rent is at 70,000 VND per hour.

Looking forward to next week! Fingers and toes crossed.
