    Thumbs up Coach Fang in Djarum's Badminton Hall (in Kudus)


    Coach Fang Kaixiang, one of China's 3 badminton gods in the 1960s [along with Hou jiajiang and Tang Xianhu]. In a TV show, he said Djarum's courts are the best that he has ever seen [for training courts]....

    Hey, I can see Febe there... back there...

    OMGosh! Arcadia High School! The pictures make it look better than it actually is. All those crazy lines and the confinement in reality don't appear in your photos.

    ..hehe, close, very close...Actually if you notice, the 2 outside (yellow)side-lines in each court **SHARE** the same outside (yellow)side-lines as the adjacent/next court. So, there's no space, in between each court, for people to walk thru. Imagine playing there..

    ..like they often say "Pictures don't tell the whole story"....Yeah, the courts are really confined, cramped, w/crazy lines all over, awful lighting, tight space to the sides and backs. Add to that, the courts are not even standard playing size. Not even close..

    Arrow For those going to Beijing Olympics 2008, this is what the Badminton venue looks like

    Greetings,

    Just received photos of the Badminton venue at Beijing for the Olympics 2008.



    Some info about the venue...

    Building area of 24,383 sq m, the Gymnasium has seating capacity for 7,500. The gymnasium includes a competition hall and a warm-up hall.



    A world record in suspension dome structures

    The Gymnasium boasts the world's largest prestressed suspension dome ceiling 93 m in diameter. Also, the steel used in producing the structure weighs less than 1,200 tons, averaging 60 kg per sq m.

    Advanced ventilation and air conditioning system

    Both badminton and rhythmic gymnastics have strict requirements for wind speed during competition. Particularly for badminton, the International Badminton Federation's (IBF) standard is a constant room temperature of 26 degrees Celsius, with the wind speed no higher than 0.2 m/s. The Gymnasium can do better than that: it can match the IBF wind speed standard and also keep the room temperature constant at 25 degrees Celsius.



    Underneath every other seat, there are three vents 13 cm in diameter – a total of 9,100 vents are located throughout the gymnasium.



    Following the Games next August, the Gymnasium will remain an important cultural legacy of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. It will become a landmark building on the school's campus as well as for Beijing's southeastern area.

    The Gymnasium will serve both the school and society: it will serve as the school's activity center, as a recreation center for the neighboring residents, and as a training base for the national badminton team.

    Relevant statistics:
    Gymnasium land area: 6,6124 sq m
    Building area: 24,383 sq m
    Competition area: 1,500 sq m (approx.)
    Games-time seating: 7,508 seats(5,767 permanent; 1,741 temporary)
    Building height: Competition Hall 25.9 m; Warm-up Hall 15.5 m
    Building floors: Floors above-ground: 4; Floors below-ground: 1
    Parking spots: 243



    So... For those going to Beijing Olympics 2008, this is what the Badminton venue looks like.

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    ..some neat stuff there, chris@ccc..Although i think this post probably belongs in the Olympics 2008 sub-forum...
    *Krisna, phew, i'm finally able to see the pics from Djarum website (took me quite a while). Hmm, perhaps next time you can download the pics and then upload to BC for a quicker loading of the pics. Oh, so those are the pics of Djarum's Kudus badminton training center. The place looks great, very clean and modern looking facility.

    If the underneath floor is uneven the carpet is also uneven. The grip is excellence.

    I still remember ond of the court that i played in my parents hometown of Perak. It was a run down court with concrete flooring. The scary thing is that the court when it is not used for badminton.. is being used to place DEAD human bodies in a Coffin. The reason is that the court is in a chinese Morgue!.. and i can see the tanks of formaldehyde and those apparatus for fixing and beautifying dead bodies. Scary huh?

    great colours too. the actual court is actually a darker shade than the actual flooring.

    woh, that is scary. how could anybody concentrate on badminton when there is death in the air. thank goodness none of the spirits joined you guys during the games you played. and thank goodness you never had to play when there is a dead body in the morgue. now that would have been very very very distracting.
