He is probably Richard Ong. You can find his photos under the Malaysian Player Thread.

When LB comes back into town, he's going have to allocate more days in order to recover from being tortured at (in no particular order) VRC, C1/C2, Collingwood and now Richmond PRO!

06-26-2006, 12:20 AM #28Thanks for all the response and well wishes. To answer some questions:
1) Rates: court rental is $16/hr. We'll be having some good intro deals so keep your eyes peeled.
2) Hours: we're planning to be opened 9 am - 11 pm. Some tweaking might be needed depending on daily response.
3) Coaches: a few of them are Yao Ming, Kiran Kumar, Alvin Lau, Chris Lee, Harry Pan. There will be a bunch of assistants there too.
4) Update: some of the courts are being layed down this week, most of the lights are in place. The inside looks very.... green hehe
5) Pics: a few will be coming soon after the inital set of courts are layed down.
6) Out-of-towners: make sure you let us know when you're in town. Always nice to meet fellow bc'ers
That's it for now. Will update again soon.
"The inside looks very.... green hehe" <- I'm guessing you mean the flooring?? =)

I was there today with Mr. Mystery, aka Mr. CD-ROM. The ceiling is about C2 and SmashCity. Three courts are ready for demonstration purpose. A group of recreational players were invited to knock around. The distance between single serving line and the wall is too close in my opinion, a potential liability issue. The concrete wall is not padded at all. I can't imagine someone smash up their body parts in a rare but possible event.

Pete LSD, I think you are the type of player who can hit the shuttle but don't know what badminton is all about. An average badminton player know where/when to hit. You don't hit the shuttle if it is going out just for the sake of hitting. I was one of the players invited to test the court. The place is perfectly designed for badminton. All the players gave good feedback when I was there. I think you have to seriously review your playing style. No body in their right mind will slam their body to the wall. The distance between the back line to the wall is more than 4 feet. Only players who intend to hurt themselves will intentionally slam their body to the wall. I hope you are not one of them.

sry string, i will have to disagree with you there. i'm sure that four feet is good enough and that isnt wut my post is about.
i'm sure that there are other reasons why you should have a good distance between the back line and the wall, such as spectators. you cant deny the fact that there are going to be people sitting along the wall watching and if there isnt enough room, that will interfere with the line calling. some of us are NOT professionals and cant instantly tell when the shot is out so many factors can influence our line-calls.
