    I agree, unless they are unlucky to have sustained injuries.

    In any case, |'ve got the early bird season tickets, although I think they cost more this year.

    Yes and they never mentioned the max length allowed for lens, unlike the last time. But I hope they will not change this rule at the entrance.

    I had a hard time trying to take photos at last year's Hong Kong Open, when cameras were prohibited.

    Bought my $60 Season tickets.
    The seats are assigned, so do buy your tickets early to choose the "center" seats. ;-)

    Higher charges for Singapore Open

    Last year, it was the unreasonable, staggering booking fee (41% of my total ticket price) by Sports Hub Tix that astounded me, yet they refused to budge despite my complaint. This year, it is SBA's turn to charge a much higher season ticket price for Senior Citizens and Students:

    Early Bird Season Ticket Price

    Last Year $18.00
    This Year $30.00
    Increase $12.00 or +66%!

    Booking Fee:

    Last Year $7.50
    This Year $4.50
    Decrease $3.00 or -40%

    The net effect is I am still paying more to watch ($12 - $3 = $9) despite the fact that there are big sponsors and Singapore badminton needs more fans and supporters!

    (BTW the Sports Hub was recently in the news for charging very high rental prices for their facilities and refused to lower them even for government related events like the annual National Day celebrations, etc. Only after the authorities stepped in that the Sports Hub management relented. Some of SH top management were replaced and more reasonable fees and charges, like this year's SO booking fee, were implemented to ensure that the sporting scene in Singapore continues to thrive.)

    You should try picketing like how VW owners did to VW Group Malaysia's office a couple of years ago.

    Anyway, do you need, ahem, funding for your season ticket? Can claim from me if you get to see me there ....

    Super Dan for Singapore Open

    By Low Lin Fhoong
    linfhoong@mediacorp.com.sg -

    Published: 4:15 AM, February 4, 2016


    SINGAPORE — Local badminton fans will be able to catch Chinese superstar Lin Dan live in action again at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, with the 32-year-old confirming his participation in April’s OUE Singapore Open.

    The Olympic and world champion last featured at the US$350,000 (S$500,300) Singapore Open in 2011, but drew the ire of fans after pulling out of the men’s singles final against team-mate Chen Jin at the 11th hour.

    The world No 5 shuttler — the only badminton player to complete the Super Grand Slam of all nine major titles in the sport — is making a bid for his third Olympic gold in the men’s singles in Rio de Janeiro.

    “It’s been a while since I last came to Singapore and I am looking forward to returning here to earn as many qualifying points as I can before the Olympic qualifying period closes,” he said.

    Lin is part of the 31-strong Chinese contingent heading to Singapore for the April 12 to 17 tournament. Among the star-studded team are men’s world No 1 Chen Long, and two-time Singapore Open champion Wang Yihan (women’s world No 4), while Sun Yu and Olympic champions Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei will return to defend their respective women’s singles and mixed doubles titles.

    “I won my first Superseries title at the OUE Singapore Open last year and I’m definitely looking forward to go back to Singapore to defend my title and meeting my fans,” said Sun.

    The OUE Singapore Open is the last Superseries event for shuttlers to earn qualifying points for the Rio Olympics, and event organisers are hoping to attract some of the sport’s star names to the indoor stadium.

    “With the China team lending their support to our event, we are confident that more big name entries will start to fly in,” said Ng Yoke Weng, organising chairman of the 2016 OUE Singapore Open.

    “Fans can expect to see mouth-watering clashes between top shuttlers from around the world battle for the US$350,000 prize purse.”

    Early bird tickets to the Singapore Open are available at Sports Hub Tix until Feb 12

    NO, I'm not. Her surname is Low, mine is Loh. Also I'm not a reporter/journalist. "Early bird" ticket is meant for those who purchase the tickets very early, before the deadline. So they are given a good discount as motivation. Just like the "early bird catches the worm". :)

    Can anyone recall how much we paid for last year's early bird tickets? They cost $60 this year excluding booking fee.

    ps the sales of the early bird tickets end in a week's time on 12 Feb.

    He was booed off the Singapore Indoor Stadium court the last time he played here.
    But badminton superstar Lin Dan will be hoping to make a better impression when the US$350,000 (S$500,000) OUE Singapore Open returns in two months' time.
    In 2011, the Chinese, then ranked world No. 1, reached the final. But, citing a bout of gastric flu, he conceded a walkover to team-mate Chen Jin, angering the crowd of about 7,400, who jeered him.

    Ironically, while Lin is twice an Olympic gold medallist and a five-time world champion, he has never captured the Singapore Open. Not once in six attempts.
    But this year he has extra incentive to do so. In a statement, the world No. 5 said: "It's been a while since I last came to Singapore and I am looking forward to returning to earn as much qualifying points as I can before the Olympic qualifying period closes."

    The April 12-17 Singapore Open is part of the Superseries, the second-highest tier of competitions on the Badminton World Federation's (BWF) calendar, just behind the Olympics and the World Championships.
    The Singapore stop is the last Superseries tournament for shuttlers to earn precious points and move up the BWF world rankings before the qualifying window for the Aug 5-21 Rio Olympics closes on May 5.
    Only the top 34 singles players in the world will qualify for the quadrennial event.
    Yesterday's announcement has already whetted some fans' appetite.
    Natalie Low, 20, said: "I am very excited to learn that Lin Dan is coming again for the Singapore Open. I first got to know about him when he came in 2011 but did not manage to see him play then.
    "I have been following him since and I am glad to now have the opportunity to see him live. I'm really hoping he is as good as seen on TV."

    Lin leads a glittering cast from China. The 31-strong contingent includes men's world No. 1 Chen Long, Olympic mixed doubles champions Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei, Olympic women's singles silver medallist Wang Yihan and defending women's singles champion Sun Yu.
    With registration closing only on March 1, and with the world's top shuttlers keen to secure Olympic qualification, Ng Yoke Weng, the tournament's organising chairman, said he and his team "are confident that more big-name entries will start to fly in".
    Singapore's Liang Xiaoyu, who is ranked 42nd and also trying to make it to the Rio Games, said: "I am very excited that all these top-notch players are coming to compete in the Singapore Open. I have only played against one world-class player and that was Ratchanok Intanon in the Thailand Open last October.
    "The opportunity to play against such world-class players will help me because it will enable me to know where I stand amongst them and help me understand my weaknesses better.
    "From there, I can make the necessary adjustments to my training programme.
    "It is always good practice to play against such high-calibre opponents as the Olympics will feature nothing but the best."

    • Tickets (from $5 to $180, excluding booking fees) for the OUE Singapore Open are on sale at SportsHubTix.

    (If LD wins this year's SO, he has a very high chance of winning a third Olympic title. :rolleyes::p:cool:)

    Probably around $40-45. The non-early bird season regular ticket costs $60. Inflation must be very, ahem, challenging in S'pore.
