    promoting badminton yes

    but i don't think he is going to manage it on a break-even basis

    because to break even in the operation with that number of courts and futsal pitch

    either the rate has to be high or some subsidies from sponsors if the rate is not

    bear in mind main line is coaching and there has to be sinking fund for them to participate in competitions later

    lets see the rates and the sponsors advertisement later and we can make a better assumption

    Badzine had an interview with Taufik Hidayat about his Badminton school

    .
    Also, Badzine had an interview with Taufik Hidayat, asking him about his Badminton school;

    Badzine: What’s your expectation of TH arena?
    Taufik: I hope to boost the players' regeneration by creating more talented players. Of course we won't be able to see the result in a short time. This will take some time - approximately five or ten years - to witness the emergence of new stars.

    Perhaps Taufik is thinking of training players from younger ages (say from 8 to 12)

    In 5 to 10 years' time, these players will be our future champions.

    IMHO, it is a good idea. :):):)

    I'm a huge fan of Indonesian badminton. Many reasons, and I wont get into them here and now. My post here is simply to share my recent thoughts and concerns.

    1. Most people agree that the TH Arena is a good thing but then again, most have concerns about its viability. Some say that TH is a good money manager and businessman. I think he has had no time really to devote to look after his businesses. Its possible his family and other confidantes do this for him. So basically, he has to trust that a close circle of people are with him in this venture.

    2. It doesn't matter how wealthy he or his family is. This sort of venture can very quickly make you bankrupt if you dont know exactly what you are doing. No one wants to see that hapen to TH. :eek::D

    3. He needs to pull in professionals from various disciplines to make this a viable long-term project. Finance; Management; Maintenance; Public Relations, Physical trainers, diet advisors, physiotherapists, coaches, guest lecturers, motivational leaders etc to name a few. Professionals will want money.

    4. He needs to establish a network of talent-scouts all over the country. These people have to be provided very clear briefs on what to look for, and where. These are the people who will "feed the funnel" with the prospects, who will then be filtered through a process of elimination. Without this system, the Arena will be a non-starter insofar as his vision is concerned.

    5. He will need to esablish a very comprehensive gym for strength training, with full-time accredited trainers who work in conjunction with the coaches and dietary professionals.

    6. He will preferably need to establish a separate place for high-altitude training for the high-performance students. In the long run this will pay dividends in terms of performance. The benefits of this kind of approach are tremendous. Maybe the mountainous areas of Java can be used for this purpose. It also lends variance and freshness to the program.

    7. He must get big corporate-style businesses interested. Not family-run businesses, preferably. Partonage and sponsorship is more than just about the money. The partnerships have many advantageous side-effects.

    8. Finally, right here on BC. What about the influential Indonesian expats who are badminton fanatics? Do they want to do something for this project? Can they contact TH and offer their inputs? It could be in many forms: cash; technical knowledge; management skills; professional advise; endowments; scholarships; etc.

    What has prompted this post? I could be dead wrong :eek: but I have this sinking feeling that Indonesian badminton at the highest levels, has no real depth left at all. Alas, there is no second line with the potential and real capability to step up and become world-beaters in the next 2 years. The associations seem to churning out a lot of mediocre players, but none with star potential. If it continues to go this way, it would be like a disaster waiting to happen. I hope and pray I am wrong.

    OK, go ahead now. Slam me. :D

    don't worry, cobalt, taufik only needs to be around the arena

    it will work just like magic, believe me

    of course the financial side he needs to be careful.

    with his vast experiences, skills and knowledge of badminton

    if he can pass them down,

    in no time we would be able to see many mini-taufik!

    It's only a five-minute drive from the Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) training camp in Cipayung.
