Hello everyone, The previous thread (New Club in TO) is getting quite long, and since the club has been open for a while now, thought I would start a new one focussing on feedback. I am contemplating joining with a friend of mine, but before I put out that kind of $$, I want to ensure I will make use of the club. I dropped in over the w/end to check out the facilities and they definately seem quite impressive. Can't say for certain as I didn't play there, but I'm not really concerened about the facility itself. I do have a few questions for anyone who plays there: --> What is the atmosphere like ? I would generally be going weekday evenings, and my friend and I are intermediate level players. Do people come in groups to play, or do they just mix up with the players there (like a drop-in format)? --> Is it crowded in the evenings ? --> I had considered joining Lee's in the past, but found it too cliquey. Is there a good mix of members at Mandarin ? --> Do people play with feather birds only or nylon as well ? --> Is the dress code (I believe I was told 70 or 80% white clothing) enforced ? --> Do they have a trial membership where those considering joining could try it out for a week or two before deciding ? --> Finally, just wondering how many people on BF are members or are considering joining. Any info is much appreciated ... THANKS !!!
