    does anyone know the address? i heard it is near the casino. 12 court facility, headed by a former coach from richpro.

    so we are going to have 3 different camps in richmond:

    indo/international @ C1;
    malaysians@ richmondPro;
    chinese@new club.

    heard also the new club is trying to recruit former chinese national players/coaches. can anyone verify?

    The place is called ACE badminton center, it has 12 courts (i counted 12, but they might remove one to have more space for spectators)
    Overall, the place seems really nice and the design is quite well too

    Well, I don't know too much about the facility yet, but I do know that it's quite spacious.
    They have a lot of rooms where you can just chill and stuff.
    It's opened by Harry (A former coach from RP). He said he might try and get coaches from China.
    I might be going on Friday just to see how the progress is, and if there's anything new, I'll give you guys a heads up.

    ? That would be a pretty crazy badminton center... but that is also much more than 12 courts...

    Just played there tonight for 2 hrs.

    Quite nice. High ceiling, good lighting, mat on wood sub-floor.

    But cold! And the outside needs to be spruced up a bit.
