    According to the website of Singapore Badminton Association, the Cheers Youth International Badminton Championships will be held at the Singapore Badminton Hall (SBH) from 15th December to 22nd December 2007.

    I guess this will be one of the last few tournaments to be held at this historical building...

    Thanks for the link. A Sydney junior is competing in the U13 event.

    I couldn't believe the increase in the lease from 100K to 1mil! :eek:

    What will happen to badminton development there???

    Hi Sealman,

    So the venue has been changed from SBA to Toa Payoh Sports Hall?
    Do you know whether it's free? :)

    By the way, the tournament venue will remain at the Singapore Badminton Hall and not the Toa Payoh Sports Hall according to the SBA website and local papers.

    I think the SBA has been enjoying very low rents in the past because of connections. Now that the lease is up, I suppose the authorities are asking for commercial rates. Many other recreation clubs, especially the golf clubs, have been paying hefty rentals, once their leases have expired since 5 or more years ago.

    Land values and rentals have gone up substantially during the past year, no thanks to the IR (Integrated Resorts comprising casinos, hotels, meetings and exhibition centres, amusement parks, etc) projects that have started the rush. Private properties will continue to remain strong in prices although the government has introduced policies recently to dampen expectations, especially in the public housing sector.

    Badminton development in Singapore, as I see it, will remain a core sport. In fact now we have a number of new entrants to the badminton scene which specialize in coaching and training. Recent age-group tournaments seem to be popular and well attended. The Sports Council is encouraging and promoting a viable sports industry as one of its objectives.

    Early next year, the SBA will move to the Sports School which is up-to-date with physical and services facilities. When the Singapore Sports Hub in Kallang is ready by 2010? the SBA is expected to move to a more permanent location there. There will be a new indoor stadium with seating capacity of around 3,000.

    I see Singapore Badminton growing in strength. :)

    To Baddict

    Dear Baddict,

    Do not worry I will be in the stadium to support the Malaysian younger players like Iskandar , Jonathan Lee and many new faces. Malaysia Boleh! I want to see them be a champion in front of my eyes especially Iskandar and Jonathan as they are seniors in the team. This time, Malaysia team send new faces to give exposure to them.All the best of luck.
