    Announcing Badminton Chronicles, One of the World's Largest Collection of Badminton Resources Mon Jul 31, 8:00 AM ET



    (PRWEB) July 31, 2006 -- HUBMAXMEDIA announces the launch of badminton-chronicles.com. HMM is owned by Jean-Pierre D'Zahr and Roy Hemmat. Given that Jean-Pierre has been playing tournament level Badminton since his junior years he is intimately involved and understands the need for a comprehensive Badminton Portal. If you love the game of Badminton then this could be your virtual Badminton Court.

    We offer thousands of Badminton links and articles which also include daily Badminton News on every page within our portal. Some of the highlights of information we've gathered is that it allows users to find a place to play Badminton anywhere in the world. For example, we have over 500 cities in the USA listed where to play Badminton. We also include places to play in Canada, Europe and Asia.

    We offer Badminton Tournament Photo Coverage, World Class Tournament Videos, and Video Interviews with top players. The best is yet to come as we also accept links to Badminton web photo galleries from anyone wanting to submit their links or articles to our portal.

    One of the unique features of the portal is the cataloging of National, International and World Class players' names from today and also past top players. You can find players from any country in the world and see what information we've gather about that player. If someone is not listed with us, then anyone can submit a list of players or submit just one individual player for insertion into our database. The only requirement is that these players must have won at least a medal at the National level of their country. This includes the Junior Nationals, Senior Nationals, and Open Nationals.

    Do you need to know the current Badminton World rankings? We've got the latest links to who's on top and how they stand.

    Of course if you are a novice and have a passion for Badminton, this is also the place to find out about Badminton history, forums, rules, tips and articles to improve your game.

    We also realize that Badminton players need and want the very latest in Badminton rackets, shoes, shuttles and apparel, so we feature daily ads from our sponsors on every page in the right column to assist Badminton players with their purchasing needs. We want to encourage you to visit the sponsors as this is our only form of revenue which helps pay for maintaining this portal.

    We're planning to keep this portal very unique, so in the coming months you'll see Badminton in ways that have high impact and creativity to keep your interest and keep you involved with us so you can ALL join in to be recognized.

    Badminton is a life-time sport, and most people play with passion. We understand passion, and this portal expresses our passion for Badminton. Feel free to make suggestions and offer your input at anytime. We want to hear from you.

    If you are a Badminton supply vendor and want Ad banners on our portal please contact us for information on rates and services we offer.

    Not a whole lot of original content... seems like just a series of search engine results for badminton topics.

    Also, there are many links that are not appropriate with the topic.

    Well, thanks for the input anyway. It might have been a great find!

    badminton-chronicles.com REAL VALUE

    Hello Fellow Badminton lovers

    Thanks for the few comments about badminton-chronicles.com

    Actually if you haven't noticed this is the only site that follows individual players information and news currently from 47 countries and over 1,000 nationally ranked players. You can even submit your own name or other names that are top rank Badminton players both past and present if they are not already listed. This is very unique and no other site offers this kind of tracking of players.

    Furthermore the site offers places to play in almost every country in the world whether you are traveling or are moving to a new city, you can find places to play quickly.

    I recommend reading the press release for other great features found on the site. It's on the top of the home page.

    Yes there are ads however nothing is free today like hosting on dedicated servers and located right on the backbone for fast service, advertising is a must to help offset these costs.

    This is a site that is also growing and with growth more and more content will be added we're making it a major push in that direction however nothing happens over night.

    Never the less we do offer hourly news updates on almost every page of the site so it's very fresh in content onvarious badminton subjects. Since the site is new some content matching takes time to kick in however the news content will be very tight within the next few weeks.

    I appricate hearing your concerns and ask that you continue to review the site and by all means offer more feedback to us with your recommendations. We truly welcome any review you may want to offer as we want to hear your opinions.

    THANKS for visiting

    Looks like someone is trying to capitalize on the popularity of badminton. Nothing new here other than it claims to be the hub for all things badminton including news, press releases, players info, results, etc... which BC/BF have plus more.

    Wouldn't surprise me if the company is looking at hoping for a buyout by listing their extensive links (and thus the probability that they have a high traffic volume) and thus can/should be able to charge higher ad rates, etc.

    RE: badminton-chronicles.com

    Hi Winex

    I see you're from Vancouver Canada I used to live in the West End back in the late 70's and played at the VCR for 2 years. In the USA Badminton is not as big as in Canada or the rest of the World so there is nothing to capitalize on here. We developed the site for the passion of the sport I've been playing Badminton 35 years and I enjoy it. I'd also love to see it recognized more in the USA.

    Yes, we hope to develop some good traffic, however our Badminton Portal even though it's new is one of the lowest income producers of all our portals. There are few advertisers in this sport and rates are dirt cheap we only hope to sustain our costs for developing, maintaining and hosting. It's not easy being an evangelist for Badminton in the USA.

    Kind Regards,
