    Balakong stadium? Hmmm not yet. But there is one club coming up there. I know the owner.


    Drifit- Of course m proud of Malaysia. I was born and raised in Malaysia. And hope to die in Malaysia as well. Since you play in many courts.. let you have the honor to take pics and post it up here.

    ..if so, yes, but slightly...I believe all the pics above, incl. those from kwun, with the nicer floor mats, are somewhat "raised"..You can read all about it in the thread link i've provided above..

    Here is our venue@CCC Badminton, Melbourne, Australia.



    4 Courts.

    Many lines, because it's a multi-purpose gym, but we are used to the lines... so, no problems at all.

    It's rubberised floor, so it's not slippery... and we love it there.

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    i think we are too spoiled here. almost every gym i have played before coming to California have lines all over the place like ccc's gym. sometimes we have thicker line because they think the basketball lines and decorations are more important. sometimes there are no lines at all!

    Thanks for posting Chris, saved me some time.

    Yes, I believe we are lucky in Cali.

    Awaiting Jerry to post some nice Netherland courts.

    And maybe Yan-Yan with some Danish courts.

    What about France? Spain? England? I'm sure you gals n' guys have nice courts too.

    Singapore? South America? What about more placeds Down Under?

    This is an interesting and fun post.
