Orange County Badminton Club, Orange, CA
Since there is also other clubs in the So Cal area, it is only fair if Kwun also open the new thread for them like OCBC, and MBBC

Is that a Club? From what I've read and heard up here in Canada it sounds more like a cult!

the one club policy i found harsh was you can only use shuttlecocks purchased from the clubs pro shop.

OCBC limits the brands: OCBC and Yonex; however, you can find them via your own source, not only from the in-situ shop.

Samkool, OCBC is a private club and it does take money to run it. Having to use their birds doesn't seem that bad to me. It's just part of being a member there. True, the price for the birds there are a bit more than what you can get outside, but if you buy in bulk, it's pretty cheap. With people complaining about the price of OCBC, you should take a look at the new clubs openning up in N.Cal. They are about the same price as OCBC.

05 WORLD Championship
Congratulations to Tony G & Howard Bach for making a history at the first World Championship in the US soil. There is never be a better time than this one because Badminton Worldwide needs a big boost in order for the sport to grow to the next level. All we need is to confince American corporations that badminton is not a backyard sport as it has notoriously been labeled with.
Thanks to Mr. Don Chew for having such a vision 9 years ago. He has single-handedly transformed US badminton into world wide mao.
Thanks to Tony & Howard for making such a dream become reality.
Please keep up the good work !!!!!!!!!
