Any play it? I got into it at the end of september, been playing about 4 times a week, never done any racket sports before and really enjoying it!

Played it for three years, really like it. But since I moved to London I can't find a court to play at that isn't ridiculously expensive. A shame, as I miss it. Good fun and great for fitness.

We use council facilities here as it's cheaper - costs about £4/per game each as we buy a discount card although the courts are not in good condition. I'm not too sure if it's any more expensive then other sports though? I used to pay £6 for footy or a one off gym class for example.

Saying that London prices I can imagine is a whole other story!

The local sports centre charges £4.60 for 40 mins, it is a bit expensive, the uni courts are £1 for 40 mins with a meter so you buy light time, but they are in terrable condition.
I am really enjoying it, looking at expensive rackets now :P
anyone have experiance with tecnifibre rackets??
