    overall very crowded.

    8pm-9pm. wait time is at least one round.
    10pm onwards: people started to leave, there are maybe 2-3 empty courts

    i noticed that overall the standard of play in BBC Milpitas is pretty high, most players are B or above player, with a few low As around.

    Halim and Eva Lee was doing some training and left around 10 or so.

    PS. i know there are some BBC staff posting and lurking in this forum. can you help make these regular wait time report? it will help load balancing court usage.

    someone need to help reporting. one person alone cannot possibly visit and report all these gyms everyday.

    that's why i want to hear from the BBC staff as they would be in the best position to report. everyone will benefit as we all want to pick days with less people and pick level of players that suits us.

    One webcam per gym will do the job.

    Between 7 and 8pm, it was a bit crowded but not too bad.

    By 8pm or so, a group of 20-30 people from this "club" occupied multiple courts. I remembered looking over and saw at least 15-20 people standing around the sign-up terminal, waiting, talking, etc. You can hardly squeeze through to sign your name or need to go to the other terminal.

    BTW, the same group came every Tuesday night but seem like not as many people as on Nov 23rd. In any case, Tuesday night is not good if you don't want to wait.

    Thursdays are usually crowded between 7-9:30 PM. Wait time is around 30 mins+. After 9:30, some courts open up after training is wrapped up. Mostly A/B players around.

    Best time, Mon-Thurs, 5-7pm

    I am a regular in BBC3. I know from 5pm-7pm, Mon-Thursday, most of the courts are empty and we even able to play single within that period of time. Saturday and Sunday are crowded most of the time.
    You can always give BBC3 front desk a call before you decide to go.
