Tennis Southeast Asia; Australia
 
Hey,

In 3 days i'm leaving germany to travel southeast asia and later Australia, maybe New Zealand. I'll be staying for about 9 months.

My first station will be Bangkok, from where I'll be heading to Laos, later Malaysia and down to Singapur. I don't know exactly where i'm going to go, and neither do I know when I am going where, that's all going to be decided spontaneously.


So if anyone in the general area wants to play some tennis I'd love to come by if at all possible :)

Also if there are some coaches out there that you know, or if you're a coach yourself, and you might be needing some help and a co-trainer for a couple of weeks, maybe a tenniscamp or something like that, it'd be great if i could work that way.


If you feel adressed by the above I'd love to hear from you.


To my person:

Im 19 years old, just finished school, and dont feel like going to university yet, that's why i'm going to travel for a while. I have been playing tennis for quite a long time now, and would consider myself advanced level player.
Also i've finished my trainers license last year.

Greetings

Hi gbgTennis,

Ill be back in Bangkok for a few days from monday. Ive just been to the places ur going to (Malaysia, singapore, australia(melbourne)) and i can advice u on the best places to play all those places, but it¨ll be difficult to find temporary jobs as assistant coach those places :( But i know where u should go if u want to give it a try anyhow.

If ur up for it with jet lag and all lets have a hit in Bangkok on tuesday or wednesday.

Cheers!

Feel free to contact me if you come to Bali, Indonesia.
Here is the red clay court I play on there sometimes:

I will also be going to Singapore at least a couple times in the next 7-9
months but haven't scheduled the exact dates yet.

gbgTennis 02-05-2013 05:49 AM

That sounds great, thanks both of you!!
Peoplespeace, are you still in Bangkok at friday? I'm arriving at the 7.2. and dont think I'll be able to play tennis on my first day there.
But I'd love to have a hit and listen to some first hand experience!

gbgTennis 02-05-2013 05:50 AM

And to onehandbh, I may very well visit Bali. If so I'll definitely text you. Also when I'm in Singapur, although I don't know yet when that will be.

No i dont, if u mean free courts, i dont think there are any. This is what u might call an urban country club. For a one day membership u pay 400 bath (13usd) for use of tennis courts, gym, pool, internet. Im playing with a knocker at 1pm to 3 pm. Feel free to join. The knocker is 300-400 bath an hour which we will share if u join today. The place is call Racket Club and is near Thong Lor BTS sky train station. If u want to join then confirm here and meet me at the club reception at 12.45. To get there u tell one of the scooter drivers waiting by the BTS station by soi (street) 49 that u want to go to Racket Club (they all know it). He will charge 20 bath.
