    Taufik begins renovation of four courts
    The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Tue, 08/16/2011 7:00 AM

    Full report: http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2...ur-courts.html

    Excerpt:

    Veteran Indonesian shuttler Taufik Hidayat has initiated his proclaimed “badminton-revival actions” in renovating four badminton courts of the overall 30 courts he believes are in dire need of rehabilitation spread across the East Jakarta municipality.

    Taufik’s team THArena, which stands for Taufik Hidayat Arena, started the first renovation works at the Balekambang badminton court, on Aug. 11-13, followed by a court in Kebon Pala on Aug. 15-18. The third location is Kalisari on Aug. 20-23 and the fourth is in Cijantung, which will be renovated on Aug. 25-27.

    The work includes repairing the badminton court and its lighting system, as well as giving away sets of badminton equipment to low income families.

    Taufik's idea on renovating some courts is really great.. bcoz in some area of Jakarta, the court's floor is still made by cement ( and some are not that smooth )

    * Out Of Topic
    But to me personally, Badminton in Indonesia is becoming more and more expensive ( compared to our salaries )

    I once played badminton in a really nice place ( nice lightning, carpet floor ) and it cost me US$ 7/hour.. where the minimum salary is about US$ 100-120/month

    The cheapest place i found is about US$3/hour.. but still, the price for watching movies in a theater ( i assume many youngster loves to watch movies nowadays ) is just US$2/movie

    But still I hope, with TH's dedication towards badminton, it could ignite again the badminton spirit in Indonesia.. especially for those youngsters who want to become athlete but don't have money to play..

    I agree, it's becoming a pretty expensive sport especially if you play singles
    5 persons play for 2 hours and that's around $2-3 each. it's almost as expensive as soccer (5 VS 5)

    $6 per hour if you play until 5 in the afternoon after that it would be $11 per hour
    the availability also pretty limited, too many people who wants to play badminton and there are to few courts available

    usually I went to my friend's church, they have an ok place to play badminton, pretty small, cement floor, but at least you can play there for free
    I can play for 3-4 hours there
    on rented court? maybe 2-3 hours max because it's just too expensive for student like me

    Taufik Hidayat might not be so aggressive like the past, but I think he might become the best defensive player. Taufik will come back with a different style , and I believe he will stay for another 5 year in the game before he retire.

    haha, me too, i played on my friend's apartment, so the court fee is free..

    but, my friend said that when he compared it to playing tennis in Indonesia, it's more expensive than playing badminton.. *i didn't know, since i haven't played tennis at all*

    I think every racket-type sports is expensive

    .
    When you hire a Tennis court, you are hiring the space of an equivalent of 4 Badminton courts. This is why.

    Table Tennis is a cheaper game to play. You can fit in 2 Table Tennis tables in the space of 1 Badminton court.

    Taufik skill and game plan is still the best. Look at how the young Chen Yuekun simply had no answer. You have to possess good speed and power to defeat Taufik, not with skills.
    i agreed, i think he should be smart and patience like peter gade ( peter is older than taufik, his skil is not better than taufik, his power is the worst around world top 10. but he play smart, patience and he forced his oponent to play a rally). and the most important is his figthing spirit. i had seen several his match and i think he is only doing a match and not too forced to winning the match.

    and the ball used in table tennis last longer than badminton..

    FYI, the court in Taiwan ( Tainan ) is 400NT starts from 19.00-23.00 That's 2x more expensive than the most expensive so far i found in Indonesia..

    yuppie.. around the world top 5 ( he's still in top 5 right? ) i think he has the worst fighting spirit.. that's why 'grandpa' peter gade always beat him...

    Hi folks, may be my old eyes are not good enough, early in the morning it might be worse, but I didn"t see Taufik in the JO draw - what are the news? Is he injured (or is it my eye again?) I guess he still needs some qualification point for the London games.

    Thumbs up 2011 Japan Open (Sep 20-25): Taufik is seeded No.5

    The 2011 Japan Open news are in this thread;

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ds)-Tue-20-Sep

    One thing for sure... Taufik is not involved in Day 1, at the Qualification Rounds.

    Why? Because Taufik is seeded No.5.

    BTW, Taufik won't be playing until Day 3 (Round 2). And we are all waiting to see who (the qualifier) would get to face him.

    he will come to japan open super series.
    i think it's too hard to win this tournament. ( he's 5 seed, there are LCW, LD, PG, CL, and CJ).
    maybe his best achievement now in japan is semifinal

    Taufik was thrice runner-up in the Japan Open, in 2006, 2007 and 2009. He lost in the finals to Lin Dan, LCW, and Bao Chunlai.
    He has always had some very good games at the Japan Open, but often, luck has not favoured him at critical moments.
    I agree, it is difficult for him to consider winning it this time, because the field is very strong and he will not have the energy reserves to push through.
    But for me, it is good just to watch him play!!! Keep playing, Taufik!!!!

    i want to see LD vs taufik in his best performance ( last in korea open QF).
    taufik is too forced to back a net chop or netting with netting again even his opponent is on front of the net.
    it's too dangerous. and he is too often make a mistake.
    i think taufik must fix it.
    but i'm not blame taufik because he achieved all tournament that he participate( except all england).
    i'm wait to see another indonesian player like taufik hidayat, one of the best men single player.
