Hi Guys & Gals, Just like most of you, I'm addicted to badminton and has been playing every night for the past couple of months. In fact, I spent more time on it than on my own company. Currently, most badminton halls are managed by SSC, schools or by large companies (e.g. IMH, SingPost, etc). Their prices are usually affordable because these facilities are considered to be a non-essential part of their main business objectives. My idea is to start a badminton hall, occupying a high-ceiling warehouse with at least 6 courts, laying good rubber mat and standard nets, good lighting (rows of lights at the sides of court at standard 5 ft height, providing total 2,400 lux) with dark blue-color walls, showers + washrooms and a self-service cafe. It would be wind-retarded (yes, we do hate wind, don't we?) If there is enough space, probably a gym-cum-stringing shop would be nice too. Parking should be free too. The hall will be opened 24 hours and would cater for coaches and leisure. The pricing would be higher than SSC-operated halls, because the hall is specialized for badminton players (no eye-boggling lines on the floor) and if there is a demand (and extra $$$), we could install air-conditioning in it (but running cost would be high). I estimate that to start it off, I need to raise at least $0.5 million. If we can find 50 shareholders, it would be an equal $10k investment each. Certainly there is a more concrete plan in store, but all of that is a little bit confidential for the moment. If you're keen on being part of history, drop a thread or a pte msg. If you own a warehouse and thought of making your hobby a little more rewarding, why not drop me a msg too?
