    Default Bay Area 24 hr Badminton...when will it happen?

    San Gabriel Valley Badminton club is 24 hrs. I see now that Bellevue Badminton Club up in Washington is also 24 hrs with 24x7 cardkey access. Can I ask why no badminton club in the bay area has started the 24 hr access yet? I'm still rooting for 24 hr badminton on Friday and Saturday nights

    the restrictions for getting a permit often dictates how late a business can be open to the public. if i remember correctly, one of the local gym owners told me that they are supposed to be close by 11pm due to their permit. i presume unless the owner have applied for 24hr operation, they won't be able to easily switch to 24hrs.

    yeah... that i know. cupertino has a no 24 hr business (no negotiations). milpitas (smash city) can have 24 hr business cuz landess has 24 hr burger king, 24 hr pho hoa, 24 hr...something else. but i guess it is a lot more expensive to get a 24 hr business license. no 24 hr badminton in bay area ever?

    I would take a vacation to that '24 hour' gym in the bay area if it ever happened. But it is interesting to see if anyone will follow SGVBC's example of making a badminton gym that's open for 24 hours a day. I hope it happens sometime in the near future.

    ...if there is/are community/city up in NorCal which will allow a badminton gym or let alone a business to operate 24-hrs???...It's a bit strange to think that there is/are none.. ..If there is & they open one up, i wonder what effect(s) will that have on the other already established gyms??..Will the 24-hr one gain more customer??..

    it might, but i doubt it will gain that much more cuz it would be mostly fanatics that would be there at that time. most of their customers i doubt are fanatics. and even if fanatics... i think u'd only attract fanatics within about 1 hr drive from the target point.

    There are actually a lot of places that allow 24/7. It's just about location, most of these places are in warehouse districts that are away from freeways and stuff.
