Was shamed into this as I had wondered about divulging so much personal information. OCCUPATION: IT field and also authorized distributor for Winex (W. Canada) and SOTX (Canada) products. BADMINTON SKILL: Don't know. I can hold my own on good days HISTORY Picked up the game at 17 yrs (I was way into basketball at that time - playing 4+ hrs everyday after school) to get close to a girl (wasn't that the reason for anything?? ) Played for a few months before heading aboard to study (was okay in that I picked up the game pretty easily). Didn't play again for 7 years (while I finished my studies and establish my career). Picked up the game again to keep fit and hasn't stopped since (except for a mini break when my first daughter was born AND when my racquet bag with its Cab 20's and 21's were stolen). I love the game and enjoys the social aspects of it and sometimes wishes that I had picked up the game earlier. BC/BF/BR Came across BC when I was doing some research on Winex products. Other Interests My family. My kids are not old enough to pick up a racquet yet but my oldest will be ready next year.
