    This popular annual event is hotting up! Early Bird season tickets at ridiculously cheap prices have been snapped up. So popular is this game in Singapore that corporations are enticed into becoming sponsors to advertise their brand names and to reward good clients to attend and watch top players in action with good food and booze as accompaniment. With the economy in excellent health, it is expected that corporations will sign up in droves!

    Preparations on all fronts are actively underway. The relevant websites are all in place waiting for the big day in early May! But in between, one should expect a series of publicity events to lure those still sitting on the fence.

    The players will be housed in the luxurious Pan Pacific Hotel located in Suntec City, close to the SIS (Singapore Indoor Stadium) venue, Kallang, where this tournament will take place.

    And this Singapore leg of the BWF Super Series will be the first to count for ranking points for the Beijing Olympics 2008. It will be another big occasion for all badminton loving fans in Singapore. The turnout is expected to beat last year's record.

    All foreign friends are most welcome to our Lion City and meet our unique mermaid, our very own MerLion and of course the other many attractions we have in tiny Singapore. Don't miss our great variety of delicious foods as well. :) .

    Hi Loh,

    Nice to hear from you again for our Open. Like last year, I will meet up with you during the tournement. I learnt form other thread about good news is our BC celebrities "ANTS" & "YANNIE" would like to visit here. And understand in the same thread also that some of Singapore BC memebers like to meet up each others and enjoy the games. What is your plan such as "Friendly games & meeting" for the foreign and local friends.

    By the way, are you still contactable through the mobile that you gave me last year? Mine is still the same. See you soon.

    We'll sure miss you but hope to see you during the WC in KL. :)

    I'm sure we now have more BC members here (such as Storkbill and more recently Sealman) who will take loads of pics and have them posted in the Forum.

    SO 2007 is the most competitive

    In my opinion, if all players come, no player withdraw...SO 2007 will be the most competitive tournament.

    Indonesia, China, Malaysia, Denmark, Korea will field their BEST players....

    Singapore is the most neutral country ....

    To Lin Dan's fans, LCW's fans, Peter's fans, Taufik's fans, Chen Jin's Fans ...please get ready to give ur "unconditional" support...OK...:D
