    I live in Houston as well, and by the way, Houston is considered as west of USA. You might find some more threads in that section as well.

    For your info, Houston will be the next new IBF Training Center set to open. Still waiting the word when it'll be opening up. The others are in China, Malaysia, Germany and Bulgaria..

    Pete,
    i have no clue whatsoever about the training course at the IBF TC. But by reading at the IBF website, with numerous articles from some players attending the camp, i can get some feel of what they are offering for the courses. Yes, the camp does include accommodation and meals. However, only selected players are able to come..

    bj,
    Hmm, "regular people" like you and me and us BCers and badminton fans??..hmmm, that i don't know. Most likely not, because i believe only junior or young-up-and-coming players from National Teams are invited or selected to train...Wish if they could have it open to the public.. :p :rolleyes:

    As for the place and exact location, sorry, i do not know at the moment. Nor who will be the coaches. I'm still trying to find that out myself.. :p :confused:

    Thanks Chris :) . It is very difficult to find badminton camps for adults.

    www.houstonbadmintonclub.com However, because it's free and lots of ppl play, you have to wait anyway on this 8 courts. Lots of good player play, and they play double only. They allow you to play 2 set of 15 points, no matter what you win or lose, you have to leave that court, and have to stay in the line. By this, it guarantee that everybody will play. good luck.
