Canadian Open GP 2011
Once again the Canadian Open will be held at the Richmond Oval, where Taufik Hidayat thrilled the crowd en route to the MS title.
It will be held from July 18-24. Hope the player turnout will be as good or better than last year. And the crowd too

The player turn out should be quite good as players would want to maximize the opportunity to qualify for the Olympics next year. ctjcad had published the list of countries participating in the US Open which is just before the Canadian Open so expect to see bulk of those International players up here too.
I believe that there is a list of players who have "confirmed" on the website (http://www.canadaopen.ca/players) pending illness and injuries.
The Canadian Open is looking for volunteers and if you are interested, please email your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org

The player list is looking good already. Praying that Wang Lin doesn't pull out as a precaution due to her injury

As you may have heard, Lee Yong Dae and Taufik have both entered the Canada Open.
We have also got some sponsors committed that will help this event be bigger and better than 2010.
Note to all fans in Canada, our goal is be better than the US Open...not easy when they are a Gold Grand Prix and we are not. We have to make up for it in other ways and we hope to count on your support!
See you at the Oval.

Wonderful to see some of the big names coming to support the sport over here in the West.
I see that former junior Sapsiree Taerattanachai from Thailand will be there. From the couple videos available on the net, she looks like a real firebrand. Maybe a star of the future.

The entry list looks great, glad to see many good players coming over
I just really hope they have solved the sunlight glare that plagued some of the previous tournaments at the oval.
