A message from the former President
"I consider myself very lucky to have joined this club when I first moved to this city. Over the past 5 years, the Swallow Badminton Club has consistently been a great place to play badminton and meet very inviting people. I would encourage all badminton enthusiasts to drop by and check this club out for themselves. Playing at Swallow Badminton Club will certainly be a missed part of my routine." - Meng Koh
