    Hello to all bc forum members:)

    It has been a while I had been on bc forum. As a badminton lover, I am always looking for chances to contribute to this great badminton community. However I do not have the rackets to test to do great reviews. And by the way, it is not that there isn't good reviewers here, but many like Ants and Kwun. So I was thinking how about reviewing a recent open shop in Mong Kok, Hong Kong! :):):):)


    Chun Yu Sport Shop (駿羽體育)
    Location: Flat C, 8/F, Lee Kwan Building, Argyle Street, Mong Kok, Kowloon, Hong Kong
    Contact: 9670 4450
    Opening Time: 12:00-21:00


    The Shop Owner
    The shop owner is one of my most trusted stringers:cool:. I had doodled around Hong Kong to find badminton stores to try their stringing services. He is quite kind and warmhearted:eek:. I like his honesty and great patients with customers. He recently (Mid-March) moved his shop from Kwun Tong to Mong Kok. And today, I accidentally ended up in Mong Kok:rolleyes:, so I decided to find him to get a peek of his new shop!

    How to get there

    It took me a while for me to find his shop XD since I don't have a map.

    Map: (Destination is the "A")
    map.jpg
    (Closest to the D3 Mong Kok MTR Exit)

    But with reference to the map above, out from the Mong Kok D3 Exit, walk to the main road in front of you, and walk straight right.

    You would see this when you arrive at the building:

    (This one is below most of the signs)

    There would then be a gate, you need to press "8" "C" on the speaker near the gate. He would then open the door for you.

    Take the closest lift you see (which is just in front of you once u enter). It should be an even number floor lift. Go up to the 8th floor.

    Once you step out of the lift, you would see this on your right:

    Just press the bell and he would open the door:D


    In The Shop

    The shop would be mainly selling Yonex Brand stuff:cool:, Clothes, Shoes, Shuttlecocks............................

    However, He says that he hasn't fully stock much goods yet. All the goods would arrive in 2 days. But for the time being, here is what the shop have to offer:D:D

    Prices (YOU ALL HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!~)
    Looked at the price tags~ The price there seems very reasonable~ :p It got to be since as Hong Kongers, we all know that Mong Kok is a very competitive place for Badminton Shops! There are many well known Badminton Shops there:D



    I would be planning to visit him 2 weeks later. At that time, his shop would be much more prepared:D! Gonna take more snapshots~

    So if you might "accidentally" strolling down Mong Kok Streets, do take some time to try to find this shop:p

    (P.S Oh yea! Almost forgot to tell you this. The Shop Owner is capable of speaking Cantonese and Mandarin, but may face some difficulty in English. However I believe he would practice his English in the probable future:p)

    By the way, feel free to ask me anything, I would try my best to answer everything u ask. And please give me some comments if you want. If I make any mistakes, please do point out! ;)

    And also, if u see any typo or grammatic mistakes, please forgive me XD I am not that good in English :eek:

    As long as they're competitively priced! Either way, I've sent my sources there to take a look!
