Every Sunday, my dear friends and I have a Badminton date. We play at Badminton City which is beside SM Manila. Actually, it started out as Dance Aero date at CCP but lately it's already been three weeks of Badminton dates.
Here are my Badminton mates and my analysis of how they play and tactical and strategic counter attacks.
The Golden Pair: Ron and April
The root of all these. Sila kasi ang nagpasimula ng Dance Aero date every Sunday. Gusto sana namin isama yung iba kasi hindi sila nagigising ng maaga para makasama samin kasi ang call time ay mga 6am (mga batugan!). Kaya pag nag-aaya silang magbadminton, mas maraming sumasama kasi mas late yung call time na 9am.

Sana marami pang sumama samin! Parang masaya kasi yung game namin kanina, yung 3 on 3. Hindi kasi sya masyadong nakakapagod. Nakatatlong set kami pero hindi pa kami pagod nun, nakapagset pa nga ako ng singles match eh.
Talo kami sa Golden Pair kanina ni Juancho. Ang lakas kasi ng Point Aura Serve ni Boss April eh. Sunod sunod yung point nila pag sya nagseserve! Bayaan nyo babawi kami ni Juancho!
Excited nako next week!
