    The floor is top quality and has a lot of traction. Try it out before passing judgement. I don't recommend diving for anything. You won't slide like an all purpose gym. This isn't volleyball.
    Glad you had a great time on Tuesday grappler, I couldn't believe the turnout from only giving a 4 hour advance notice on facebook. I've received nothing but positive comments in regards to the floor, especially from some of the older folk.

    Ask a ye shall receive Just kidding, benches in the changeroom and hair dryers were always meant to be installed and it should happen in the next few days. What did you think of the changeroom/washroom ammenities otherwise?

    I like the lockers. I don't always have room in my badminton bag for my jacket and the clothes I change out of before I play so I can see myself using them. The door resistance was on the heavy side. I am guessing that can be changed as well.

    I thought I heard from somewhere that you will be licensed to server alcohol. Any truth to that?

    Door closers tend to be a bit stiff when they are brand new, I can probably make some adjustments. The lounge upstairs will be licensed in the near future. Aside from alcohol, the lounge upstairs will also serve food, juice smoothies as well as have a full espresso bar. It also serves as just a really cool place to chill out after your badminton session.

    I'm exploring the idea of having badminton leagues, I'll need to do more research to see if the demand is there. As for tournaments, we are very well set up to host them with the 2nd level observation deck

    It does look less than that but that impression might well be due to the oblique angle of view.

    Website is in the process of being updated. Courts are free to play during grand opening. Probably not a good day to try and substitute your regular sunday badminton though place with, if the soft opening was any idication, its gonna be busy.

    let's hope there is a limit to the free play like 1/2 hour per group or 1 hour per group to limit anyone hogging the courts for others to try. unless u do a free drop in type but then you will have to limit the total number of people to avoid total chaos.

    So how much will court rental be on regular days and the hours of operation?

    Is it possible to tell us the rules/procedures on getting a court on grand opening?
    Will any staff overlook the court rotation?

    My friends and I wanted pay a visit but do not want to wait for hours for a court.

    As we are now less than 12 hours from opening the doors at Badminton Vancouver (doors open at 11am), I wanted to personally thank all those on Badminton Central who have patiently waited, took the time to participate in the thread and are planning on attending Sunday's opening of the doors.

    While this project as most do; has had its fair share of bumps along the way, I do firmly stand behind the finished product and believe it will have been well worth the wait. And while I do firmly stand behind the product of Badminton Vancouver, I believe our greatest strength lies in the fantastic customer experience we provide. I can assure you that there will be always be clean and well maintained ammenities, a smiling face at the front counter eager to help, knowledgeable and professional staff in the proshop ready to serve your needs and top notch beverage and refreshments upstairs at the Mezz cafe and lounge.

    See you all tommorow!!
