Introducing the PB Shuttlers

Introducing a new concept in the Philippine badminton scene...the PB (Pinoybadminton) Shuttlers. The PB Shuttlers will be composed of the following ex-national players:

Badong Banquiles - Former Philippine #1 (1988); U.S. Opens Veterans Mixed Doubles First Runner-Up (2002, 2004); Badminton Coach.

Jojo Mance - Former Philippine #1 (1987, 1989-92, 1994-95); former Assistant Coach to the RP Team(1998-2002, 2005) and Head Coach to RP Juniors Team (1996-97); Badminton Coach.

Ronald Magnaye - Former RP national player (1990-98); former Men's Doubles Champion; Assistant Coach to the RP Team (2005); Badminton Coach.

Rocky Magnaye - Former RP national player; member of the PBA Grassroots Development Program; Badminton Coach.

The PB Shuttlers will not only showcase their talents inside the badminton court, they are guaranteed to bring smiles to the faces of the spectators. Their initial exhibition match will be held at Club 650 Badminton Court (Libis, Q.C. beside shopwise), on Sunday (27 August 2006), 11:00 A.M., as part of the highlights of the Rexona Badminton Cup. If I'm not mistaken, Prime Diva (RPN 9?) and Solar Sports might be covering this event, as well as Channel 23 (for Badminton Extreme).

If you have the time and you're just near the area, please drop by and you'll surely have fun watching the exhibition.

Is this an exhibition game or a championship match?

By the way, I thought you wanted to change your layout? Anyways, check out some of the cool templates that I think will suit you on this site:

Remember, you can still change the header picture to your liking. Just holler if you need help, ok?

Sounds like an interesting exhibition, but don't know any of these names :(

snglguy> Sorry if I did not make it clear. Puro exhibition matches lang ito...ala harlem globetrotters. :-)

Yes, I do want to change my layout super bad. But I'm kinda busy these days and medyo tinatamad kasi nga technophobe ako eh. Sige, I'll visit the site. What I actually want to do is just include a picture of a badminton racket and shuttlecock in my header image. I don't know how to do that.

eric> don't worry, mga sikat na players sila nung nakaraang dekada pa. But one of them is my husband...hahahaha. I'll let you guess which one.

Senor Enrique said...

Aha! Wonderful! Magandang panoorin nga ito! I'll see if I can grab someone to come with me.

BTW, tomorrow, my sister is throwing a birthday party for my mother. If unable to make it tonight with Sidney, will try for this one in Libis!

Played a couple of times at Yellow Feathers, pero grabe traffic noon don. Are the roads fixed? Not much trafic anymore at Libis?

the who's who of pinoy badminton. Bigats.

Unfortunately, I dont play :( too bad.

ladybug said...

eric> i'm not sure about the traffic situation. But since it's sunday, hopefully walang mashadong traffic. Instead of this, you might want to watch the MAP tournament in Makati I was telling you about. Hahabol kami dun kasi kasali din sila sa tournament. Dun naman kasali pati current members of the national team. May mga Indonesians and Malaysians pa nga eh. Matindi ang bakbakan doon.

ladybug said...

senotiro<-ako> Sayang. Badminton is a lot of fun. Medyo nakaka-adik pa nga sa simula eh. :-)

Toe said...

I wish I were there to watch. I could get inspired to take up the game again. I sit too much on my butt nowadays. :)

ladybug said...

toe> mukha ngang marami kayong activity diyan eh, haha. Sige, pagbalik mo dito laro ulit tayo. :-)

Senor Enrique said...

I didn't realize this tournament was yesterday; same as yours in Makati. May birthday party I had be go to. Sayang!

ladybug said...

eric> Don't you worry eric, you can still catch more of them in future tournaments/exhibition matches. :-)
