    Greetings,

    The Official Website for the 16th Asian Games has been released:
    http://www.gz2010.cn/special/0078002F/enindex.html

    This 2010 event will be held in Guangzhou, China.

    I believe that many BCers would be following Badminton in this Asian Games.
    So, let us update any Badminton news regarding to this event, as we get informed.

    Cheers... chris-ccc

    2010...

    ..will definitely be a busy year in sports, in general. For badminton, you've got the AG (not a BWF sanctioned event), BWF's TC & UC (in M'sia), BWF's World Championships (in France), BWF's World Junior Championships (in Mexico). Other sports: FIFA World Cup 2010, the Winter Olympics (Vancouver)...
    any other??..:confused:

    Btw, not sure if kwun/mods want to move this thread to the Tournament sub-forum? Or risk being buried & un-noticed in this General Forum sub-forum/section??..

    2010 Commonwealth Games: A dispute over the construction of the athletes' village

    .
    Maz ... Did you know that India could miss out on hosting the Commonwealth Games if a dispute over the construction of the athletes' village is not resolved?

    If New Delhi was unable to host the Games, Melbourne would likely be asked to be host again: click here

    heh, knowing indian people, it will be a while before they resolve it. (i am indian) But i am sure that they will eventually pull something together, in order to save face.

    ^^No confirmation on the dates/schedule yet..^^

    ...and badminton could be played outdoor..................




    ....no, badminton will be played @ Tianhe Stadium. If you click the link in the 1st post, above, you'll be directed to the official website. Then click on the "Venues" link on the left colum. Then click on the "Preview of new Asian Games 2010 venues" link; you'll see a bunch of pictures showing the venues. Click on the picture of Tianhe Stadium...

    stay tuned for more infos..:)

    Tianhe Sports Centre is undergoing massive upgrading works right now. I was there to pick up my Sudirman Cup tickets last May. Like Senayan Sports Complex, it is a whole complex within the City Centre, with it's own Subway Station and shopping complexes nearby.
