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

    The ownership group is comprised of 4 people. The major shareholder is based overseas.

    Richard (as I understand it) is one of four partners. Ximing YAO was a coach at VRC for a long while and has not been happy with the way that things were ran at VRC (esp. by the head coach there). This is a great opportunity for Ximing to actually get things going based on his knowledge and experience AND be properly credited with training the players instead of someone else (who shall remain nameless) taking credit.

    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!

    Oh yeah, I am a crazy bastard. We were planning that, when I was still in town (dinner table), for my 3rd trip.

    Well, did not keep up with all the practice as I normally do these days. Slacking off a bit. Hope by the time we meet again, I won't be 300lbs...

    Thanks 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.
    mb
    wooo... $16? hehe.. pretty good price i daresay.
    "The inside looks very.... green hehe" <- I'm guessing you mean the flooring?? =)

    I checked out the place last week. This place is huge!!! They have a few courts lay down already. Yes, it looks very green both flooring and wall. I guess you wouldn't see any pictures until everything is up and ready.

    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.
