    This never made sense to me. What they planned would be real expensive. Who was going to put up the financing, and how did they expect to recover the investment? They'd have to charge high fees. And it would be too close to SGVBC.

    Not Arcadia but close...it would be about 5 mile south in... South El Monte, just off the 605, south of the 10. This proposed club is in the works and will be run by a badminton supplies manufacturer. Not sure what the progress is but I can ask on Wednesday...

    ..i swung by the area, last week & the lot is still empty, no construction, yet.
    I think when it says (on its website) "..scheduled to commence 2nd Quarter 2009"(sometime in late spring/summer), i guess it means the actual construction will begin by then??..or maybe it'll be the actual grand opening, itself?..

    Default ^^Great news..^^

    ..thanks for sharing that..after months and years of waiting, finally!

    Looking at the details, with nearly 3,000 seating capacity, it could be, arguably, the largest badminton spectator venue in Southern California. The facility's sq. footage is close to an acre.
    It should be interesting to see how the new facility will turn out...

    If LABC actually opens, we will have three major badminton clubs, totaling 50 courts within a radius of 3 miles.

    That's way too much in such a concentrated area.

    Early bird (in this case, tiger) catches the worm.

    It would have been ideal if we had:

    +One club in West L.A
    +One club in San Gabriel Valley
    +One club in Rowland Heights or Diamond Bar

    I can confirm LABC construction has commenced. The contractor hired my father's (now retired) firm to do the geotechnical engineering.

    Come middle of 2009 badders in the San Gabriel Valley area will be in badminton heaven. Oh wait, it's badminton heaven here, now. It will be more even so then.
