    Congratulations to all those involved in the new RichmondPRO Badminton Center! It's hard enough to get started in the first place. Best of luck with the business side of things! We could always use more quality drop-in places.

    Madbad,

    Can we have a bit more details about the new centre, i.e. business hours; rental fees; coaching staff, etc.

    Thanks

    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.

    The place sounds great....can't wait for some pictures.
    Is there a website because that'd be cool. I'm coming to Vancouver during August and will most definately be checking it out.
