    Default Toa Payoh Sports Hall

    I've never played at the TPSH although Chew5555 and his kakis are regulars there. So yesterday, I decided to take a trip to TP after work to get acquainted. It is quite far from my office at Raffles Place, unlike the Singapore Badminton Hall which is much closer and this enables me to make more frequent trips there.

    TPSH is circular in design, not very big nor tall and is set in the midst of the sports complex comprising the TP Swimming Complex, Singapore Table Tennis Association training centre, TP Stadium and the Sports Council TP office.

    My visit coincided with the 2006 National Wushu Championships and it was actually the first time that I had a chance to witness such a competition. The Hall is big enough for 4 badminton courts with room to spare. The ceiling looks a little low and the lights don't seem to be very friendly as they are relatively dim (bad for the camera) and directly overhead. But the seats up in the gallery, though they are more like the less comfortable benches without backs, are quite well spaced out and exudes a breath of warmth when occupied. Movement around the gallery is free and easy.

    The most welcomed addition is the airconditioning which contrasted glaringly with the heat and discomfort that a visitor has to bear for long periods at the SB Hall.

    Here are some pics. Balance seems to be very important to the wushu exponent. The non-weapon hand is used not only to add beauty to the form and stance but also used to stabilise the body, something that badminton can learn from.

    Those going to the Toa Payoh sports hall by MRT should alight at Toa Payoh MRT station and take a short walk through the pedestrian mall (HDB Hub). The Toa Payoh sports hall is next to the Toa Payoh swimming complex/Toa Payoh Gardens. If you are interested in getting some badminton equipment, Classic sports/Safra Toa Payoh, is next to the sports hall/stadium.

    I'll let others to add some more info..
    Serla probably has known about it....I will be around in town during that period. But, I am not sure whether I will watch the Singapore Satellite because of the tight schedule I have this time. Perhaps we can meet up once again in one of the days for dinner.

    Default Similarity between Wushu and Badminton

    I can't help noticing in pic.12 how similar the holding of the Chinese sword by the lady in white, is to that of forehand grip in badminton.

    With the non-weapon hand used as a balance, the similarity extends further. But I think by far the more important aspects of Chinese wushu are the footwork and stability, something that the badminton exponent could study further and learn from.

    With 'animal-like movements' including jumping, lunging, 'flying', sudden jabbing/dabbing with the peak for birds, diving, etc, for various schools/styles of wushu, this makes it all the more interesting.

    Hello,

    Anybody with news on when the draw will be out. Hong Kong Open's draw is out and the tournament date is the same as this Satellite.

    Perhaps this reflects the difference between the organizers standard of a 5 Star tournament and an A grade satellite???

    Hope the draw will be out soon.

    Cheers.

    Hi BaddyNut

    Didn't know that you're also interested in this one. Anyone in particular that you have in mind?

    Agree that the SBA is unusually slow in coming out with the draw. Don't know what's holding them up, but I expect it to be out very soon as the competition is on Monday.

    Loh,

    I'm always interested when Malaysian Back up squad is involved. Especially this time when Singapore will be defending its fort. I expect lots on Singapore entries and see how the Singapore national Program fares.

    are Kendrick & Ronald competing or are they opting for the more prestigeous event?
