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...

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

Thanks for sharing the pics...
*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.

Try this thread
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?
