    Default Badminton legends duel in Jakarta

    I think that we still not forget Morten Frost, Prakash Padukone, Han Jian, Brothers Sidek (Misbun, Rashid and Jaelani), Ge Fei/Gu Jun, Ye Zhao Ying, Rudy Hartono, Liem Swie King, Punch Gunalan, Tan Joe Hok, Icuk Sogiarto, etc......

    They are invited on 16 July to come to Jakarta for DUEL between them.
    This event take place in Jakarta when ABC organize an Annual General Meeting. Also there is a Asian Junior Championship.

    I really want to wacht they play, but..... I can't go to Indo right now.

    I agree. I like seeing old champions playing.
    It's like seeing Senior tour Golf, with excellent shots and swings.

    Sorry Jo, I don't know where.
    But I think one of these three places : Istora Senayan, Senayan Tennis Court (where the Thomas and Uber were held) or ABS Badminton Court next to Hotel Mulia. Or maybe in Cipayung training centre.

    No offence intended, but can some of the older players still take the physical stress of badminton even recreationally? For instance, Rudi has had several heart ops., I think. However much I'd want to see him play again, it wouldn't be wise for him to strain himself on the court, I should think.

    Morten Frost, Swie King, Icuk, Misbun and Zhaoying, OTOH, now they look like they can still compete with the current young turks. And win.

    BTW, I'd love to see Icuk comes up against Yang Yang again. What's he, 1-8 lifetime against YY?

    Default 150 Badminton Courts

    The news is kind of unclear, but Gelanggang Mangga Dua Square is not located in Mangga Dua, but in Dukuh Atas to Jembatan Semanggi, 5000 seats, and can hold 600 players simultaneously, the courts are 3 km in length. So, assuming everyone plays doubles, I guess there are 600/4 = 150 badminton courts!!!

    Would this be the largest badminton facility in the world???

    I read about the news also, where they will hold a simultaneous badminton match in the middle of the street(Jl. Sudirman), also during the conference AGM-ABC(Annual General Meeting-Asian Badminton Confederation) July 11...Wonder if this will be held in open-air or closed..The ABC Junior championship will also be held at the same time..

    I will go to Indo, but most likely this coming mid June not July, so I won't be able to go and attend the festivities..
    Perhaps aiyuuw and others living in Jakarta can attend and take some pics and post here??..

    The simultaneous badminton will be held on the street, more clear.... on Sudirman avenue, from Dukuh Atas to Semanggi fly-over. So... open air.
    There will be 150 badminton courts for 600 players. They will play in the same time to book a world record.

    But the Gelanggang Mangga Dua Square is a new sport hall with 5000 seats. So... not open air.

    SteveStanley, Aiyuuw, Jofianty or BFer from Jakarta, can you confirm this ?
