    Right you are visor! Sign is only visible when standing in Vancouver. The location is meant to serve those who live and Vancouver and Burnaby and Richmond. We are visible from the knight street bridge, do feel free to drop by and have a look. Wondering who you heard about this new development from?

    Kwun, I hope its more than a tourist attraction. More photos will follow for sure. Since we are building this facility from the ground up with a "badminton specific" mentality, there are going to be a few things done differently and I think you will be interested. Can you move this thread to the sub-forum of Canada West please?

    Oh, thru the grapevine... you know, badminton fanatics in Vancouver are a pretty tight knit bunch.

    Iirc, there was talk of it being located in the warehouse area around No. 6 Road and Bridgeport in Richmond, but no suitable existing building with 33 foot high ceilings were found... hence a completely new building from the ground up on an island... i just remembered the wrong island...

    tight knit bunch indeed, the rumour of no. 6 road and Bridgeport was not I. The rumours of new centres come and go and that rumour would not have been me. Hope to see you here and stay tuned for updates. www.facebook.com/badminton.vancouver

    Kwun, as you can see from the facebook page: www.facebook.com/badminton.vancouver , the flooring is bio mechanically engineered to provide the ideal friction co-efficient, ideal shock absorption and energy return. I'll leave it at that for tonight. Everything was really thought of with a "badminton first" mentality.

    wow kwun, you are quite astute to find that beach volleyball place. let me just say theres will be rolled out rubber mat. It will be a permnanet flooring that is bio-mechanically engineered.

    Wow! The location is almost perfect. I am more curious about the flooring, especially the shock absorption aspect of it. Lighting would be the next concern. I might stop my VRC membership if I like what I see.

    How many courts available?

    Also are you planning on expanding to Burnaby (North) or North Van?
    Wouldn't mind something closer to home.

    given those clue, then the only possibility in my mind would be a suspended wood flooring with court mats on top. similar to OCBC type flooring which is absolutely the best type of flooring for badminton and also be international tournament worthy as well. i hope i am not disappointed.
